I've always loved the simple lines of West Elm's parsons desk:
and was elated when I saw this in Home Decorators Collection for half the price.
I'd love 2 of them for the office/guest room, but we always end up doing our work at the dining room table. Would the addition of this to the room make us more likely to use it?
I stumbled upon this lamp when I first went to the Jonathon Adler store on Newbury St. in Boston. It was love at first sight.....and then I saw the price tag ($425)
Could I settle for something slightly different for $139?
How often do you compromise for price? What do you refuse to skimp on?
