With recession talk looming everywhere and the demise of so many shelter magazines, everything seems so gloomy, I wondered what's the one affordable piece of decor or furniture that I felt would last forever. (Forever for me meaning, It would live through my constant, changing, rearranging and updating). I am so fickle when it comes to decor. But on that note, I would like to say that I am pretty satisfied with the purchase of my West Elm Parsons desk in Glossy White. I know there has been some disparaging views on the quality of West Elm items, and I have witnessed that firsthand. With that said, I absolutely love my Parsons desk and as I move on I know there will be a place for it. I hope it lasts that long. When I purchased my Parsons desk, I was torn when I found out like two days later a Parsons Mini desk came out. But then I thought naah...I'll go for the full size, since it can be used as a console in an entryway or behind a sofa. The Mini would be nice in a small space though. I love the clean lines and the glossy black color!! It's haute! Bottom line the West Elm Parsons desk is a classic and is a versatile piece that will go with a multitude of decor styles. Just open up a friggin issue of Domino and its plastered all over the place. But don't hold that against it.
