I'm a huge fan of the Parsons collection of tables and desks from West Elm — they're part of my list of Best Cheap Furniture Basics and in addition to owning one, I have recommended them to countless friends and readers. Which is why I was so surprised to see the newest addition to the collection — the vanity —
Lost is the simple shape and straight-forward proportions of the classic Parsons table — with the addition of a swiveling round mirror and a single bulky drawer. The vanity may "coordinate" with the Parsons collection and it sports a "cord-management hole large enough to hold a hair dryer" but in my opinion it's a far cry from the appeal of the collection.
West Elm Parsons Vanity is available in white for $299.
