Parsons Tables

One of my favorite styles. Simple, timeless and restrained. The Parsons table is uber functional and versatile.

This style is said to have come from a 1930’s project in the Parsons School of Design, where Jean-Michel Frank tasked students with creating a basic table that when covered in any material would retain its integrity and remain desirable. I’m assuming the students all got A’s.

Regardless of existing decor or style, you can always count on a Parsons table to blend in. They are useful in just about any room and are often seen in residential, commercial and hospitality settings.

See below for a few of my faves that are all affordable and definitely stand the test of time.
