Parsons Desk


Pros: The compact Parsons is ideal for a small apartment: Its shallow depth hugs the wall, and since it doesn’t look overbearingly desk-ish it can double as a console table or even a bar. If you need the piece further scaled down, there’s also a mini version that’s 18 inches shorter.

Cons: Upon close inspection, it appears West Elm may have cut a few too many corners in making this piece affordable: Our model had crooked drawer fronts, bumpy lacquer, sticky sliding mechanisms, and splinters on the bottom drawer lip. Still, $299 is a pretty sweet deal.
