Parsons is a classic style of furniture generally classified by its simple shape and straight legs.  So classic, in fact, that these pieces have been interpreted a million ways.  West Elm even created a series on its blog (and in catalogs) to showcase what designers and bloggers have done with their West Elm parsons tables.

I was delighted to see a new parsons collection at Home Decorators, comprised of a coffee tables, console, side table and media stand, in bright orange, pale blue, black and white.

Unlike the classic, these tables have a base that sits on the floor.  As I notice my predilection for leggy upholstery, (there is more and more of it with the love for all things mid-century modern these days), having pieces like these can ground a space without making it too heavy.

Feels a bit like Ikea lack for grownup spaces.

What do you think: have you had a love affair with parsons style?  Did you know you can submit your own "Home Run" to West Elm?  They showcase images featuring any of their products used to express your sense of style--not just the Parsons.  Submission form here.  fun, right?

  1. I had the white lacquer Parsons desk from West Elm for a while and I have two of the lacquer bookshelves now. I think they are a classic shape and they did a great job with the lacquer. They are definitely keepers!
