I rarely used to work at my desk and instead opted to balance my scalding computer on my lap while on the couch. The bulky dark wood was not only uninviting, but the shape was not conducive to sitting at for long periods of time. I had always loved Parsons desks (where the width of the legs equals thickness of the top) for their versatility and West Elm's glossy version fit the bill. I bought a sleek Lucite chair on eBay to accompany it and added a vintage phone and globe I found at flea markets, a simple lamp and fresh flowers.
