The Parsons Table Three Ways

The Parsons Table is an absolute favourite of mine. So simple, so stylish and so versatile, it can be used as a console, a desk, even a small dining table. You can dress it up or down, masculine, feminine, style it any way you please. 

It was designed by Jean-Michel Frank while he was working at Parsons Paris School of Art and Design in the 1930's. Frank challenged his students to design a basic table that would retain it's integrity whether sheathed in gold leaf or burlap. Initially called the T-square table, it's square legs have the same width as the tabletop, regardless of it's other dimensions. The versatility of the Parsons Table has made it a perennial favourite of many, and I've chosen three differently styled tables to share with you today.
