Updated Classics: Office Desks
Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.
Classic Pick: The Parsons desk, a hardworking take on the iconic table designed by Jean-Michel Franck in the 1930s. Its classic silhouette works just as well in glam, trad or modern spaces.
Fresh Spin: For a similarly clean-lined look, try a sleek writing desk in warm wood tones. It has the same visual lightness as a classic Parsons table, but its silhouette skews toward vintage cool. Small drawers provide storage without adding bulk, while the top section keeps office essentials close at hand.
