Quick Question

I know it is Saturday and you have better things to do than to worry about me and my decorating problems but as long as you are here....

Which desk would you pick?

Parsons Metal Desk

First choice West Elm metal parsons desk

foyer with West Elm Parsons Metal Desk with recycled  glass lamp and turquoise ...

Good looking right? Love it here


CB2 Go Cart Desk


Doesn't it remind you of Jenna Lyons' desk?

I think the CB2 desk gives you the same look as the Strut desk for a fraction of the price plus I need a smaller size.

I would love to get the Go Cart desk and paint it a bright color but I have my giant yellow lamp that needs to play well with the desk so white or metal works...

It looks like a lot of white but I may be painting my walls soon so don't worry. what do you think? 
Hurry and vote. Bill is in a golf tournament all weekend and I am going to entertain myself by ordering a, right?

PS.Yes, I would love to find something cool and vintage but I have been looking for two years and time is up!! And in case this influences your decision the West Elm desk is 3 times as expensive as the CB2 desk...just saying. 


  1. West Elm! I have it and absolutely LOVE it!!! Good luck :)


  2. West elm all the way!! I used the white lacquered one in my daughters room and love it!

  3. It's pouring down rain here thus my son's soccer game has been canceled so I have nothing better to do. :)

    I see where you're going with the CB2 desk, but I can't help but vote for the Parson's desk. It's just a classic and can go anywhere (Matt got me one a couple of years ago for Christmas and it's one of my favorite gifts). If you're looking for a less expensive version, I saw one at Home Decorator's recently (not in metal, but they do have gray and white and other colors):!pla!!!20539275859!g!!22252393819&gclid=CJLVrZ356rYCFYHc4AodBzsAkw

    Good luck!

  4. We have both. Parsons in teenage daughter's room . White. Cb2 in our familyroom for Mac. Charcoal.
    Hands down our family would all pick cb2. We love it!

  5. I actually like the CB2 desk. If you get tired of it you can move to another room and if it is that much cheaper than the West Elm, that's a no brainer in my world.

  6. I'm for CB2 so your votes may be split. If you eliminate price which do you love? I know what you mean about looking long and hard for vintage and sometimes well, life goes on. Girlfriend, which do you love?


  7. Do CB2. I would say mainly b/c of the is a very similar to the W.E. parsons. I don't see the West Elm adding so much more impact than the CB2. Besides, your tastes might change down the road. If your life is anything like mine, you'll purchase the desk and then find the greatest vintage desk that would be perfect for your space! :) Just saying....:)

  8. Lucky me for finding the WE one for my nephew at the outlet for half price. It's pretty awesome so that's my vote....

  9. Love the WE desk best of all. You'll make it fabulous no matter what!

  10. For where you're going to be putting it, the West Elm. It'll look fantastic!

  11. I have the West Elm. I don't like the drawers at all. Too small to really be functional for anything more than pencils. In a couple of places, the metal edges curl up just a bit - OUCH when you find them. I like how it looks, but I don't use it very much.
