Vanity of vanities
The architect's original plan called for the vanity to be a custom-built, furniture-style cabinet, but Peggy spotted a pair of elegant bureaus at an antiques shop, and collaborative brainstorming ensued. Six feet wide by 41/2 feet deep, the fabricated vanity is an ingenious composition of the two dressers placed back-to-back and topped with a slab of marble fitted with two undermount sinks.

To accommodate the sinks, the top center drawers were removed (false drawer fronts remain). At 36 inches tall, the vanity is a few inches higher than standard counter height but perfect for the tall couple. "We love that we don't have to bend way over to wash up," says Peggy.
