Help me find a vanity unit for a bathroom sink (pics included)

I've spent the last two months searching antique and second hand shops trying to find a mid-century unit that a basin can sit on top of. Everything I've found has been too long (space is 1.2m max) or too low down and I'm now running out of time as the bathroom fitter is coming later this month. Ideally it would be floor standing, have some concealed storage and be the right side of £1k. I've found some images of units I like on Pinterest but can't find stockists. Help!!!!

Try Parker and Walkers furniture on Facebook. Also have a look on ebay for bespoke stuff? Would be repro but you could have exactly how you want?

I think I might have been looking at P&W on ebay last night, didn't realise they had a facebook page. They're a possibility but I might have left it a bit late to get it in the next 3 weeks!

Oh yes, sorry didn't see that bit! I don't think their order books are even open at the moment!

Have you contacted local joiners with workshops to have one made to your specification? And see if they can make one within your time frame?

Veritys that's such an obvious suggestion - especially as I am having fitted wardrobes installed in 10 days time by a local joiner! Off to scour their website to see what else they have made.

Coper I love the one with the marble top but I found a post to say their order book is closed till March.

Is there anything suitable on Tika Moon? Never used them so can't vouch for quality but they seem reasonably priced.

You could buy an old washstand and have it customised

Hack an IKEA unit?

There are a couple of possibilities on Tikamoon, although some of them have a 4 month lead time! Off to look at Ikea, somewhere else really obvious that I hadn't thought of.

I've had another search on ebay tonight and there are a few mid-century / G Plan units that I might be able to adapt.

You've got a very healthy budget so hopefully something will turn up
