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.
What a hoot! These wide-eyed owl measuring cups have some serious seventies flare. The set comes complete with 4 nesting cups, whose whimsical design makes tackling even the hardest recipe, a bit more fun.
The pattern and eco-ethic of this silk pillow are on point. The material is hand-loomed by a sustainably minded cooperative and the playful dots will accent sofas, armchairs, and beds in need of a punch of color.
