The Parsons table is the go anywhere, be anything, practical piece of furniture. It can be a console, coffee, dining, desk, bedside and on and on, and still look completely modern and savvy. It has apparently been around since the 1930's and fits into todays design as much as it did in any decade before. You can purchase a Parsons anywhere from $ to $$$$. I have at least 3 or 4 of them in my tiny home. It's a clean design that's practical too.
