Identify This Multi-Functional Desk?

Q: I'm writing hoping one of the wonderful readers of Apartment Therapy might be able to help me source the desk shown in this image from the late Domino magazine. I'm moving into a very tiny apartment in a few months, and am in need of a desk that can triple as a drafting table, a computer desk, and as my dining table —and this one seems to fit the bill! If anyone knows where I might be able to purchase this desk (or one very similar to it), I would appreciate the help. Thanks!

Editor: This one is an easy one — it's the very popular Parsons Desk from West Elm. It's been a favorite of Apartment Therapy and Domino readers for a long time and it even made our list of the best Cheap Furniture Basics. I personally have one and can attest to its sturdiness and overall usefullness — it's my favorite item in the West Elm line up from season to season.

The Parsons Desk with Drawers is regularly $299 at West Elm — but colors and finishes are frequently updated and retired so watch for sales of the trendier colors!
