We were recently asked by Abby Tabak from House Beautiful what we would do with the Parsons Desk from West Elm. We thought long and hard about the best chair and lamp for this classic piece of furniture and finally decided on Hans Wegner's swivel chair paired with the new Grace Lamp from Environment Furniture.
Our exact answer in fact is we've "...always loved the elegance of Hans Wegner's 1955 swivel chair and its mix of wood, leather, and chrome. The more organic forms of the chair and the lamp-made of a lightweight plastic that resembles paper-soften the geometry of the desk. Separately, all three pieces have a simple beauty. Together, they make a rather bold statement, even if the understated spirit remains." So now we're curious...given the same question-what would you do? (click on the images to enlarge)
