I'm Lovin it... The Parson's Desk

Specifically, the West Elm Parson's Desk.  It is perfect in every way.

Legend has it that Jean Michael Frank, the French master of minimalism, asked his design students in the 1930's to come up with a piece of furniture that would keep it's integrity whether it was constructed of wood, plastic, parchment, or whatever.  West Elm reinterpreted this now iconic shape, and it is still going strong.

West Elm kept true to the iconic design with its squared legs and clean, chic design.  The elegant proportions make it ideal for any room in the house and any style of decor.  Use it as a desk, console, bed side table, sofa table; it's endless.  I guess that is why it has endured for 80 years!   I have seen it in very high end designer decorated rooms.  It's also the perfect choice for designing on a dime at $299.99 for the molded plastic model, to the NEW $599.99 all mirrored version.

I have incorporated the other versions, but this mirrored desk is stunning!  I can't wait to use it on a future job.
