Initially, I was going to do today’s Fashionable Friday around the West Elm Parsons Desk in the mirror finish but they are not making it anymore. West Elm still sells a mirror console table but its a bit shallow to be used as a desk. Instead, I found this elegant mirror-finish desk at Horchow. Its a bit more expensive than the Parson desk but its gorgeous so fate worked for me.
If you already have a desk, try accessorizing with tools that reflect light in silver, chrome, steel or brushed metallics.
Alternately, if you choose to decorate your office with a mirrored desk, then choose a lot of accessories that have different textures and materials to keep your space from feeling too cold or institutional. A plant or vase of flowers on the desk will add color and will pick up your spirits. And a soft, cozy, faux sheepskin rug under the desk or draped over your chair will add warmth.
