Ogle or Own: White Lacquer Desk

May 8, 2012

I’m having a white lacquer moment. Anyone else with me? I just learned this weekend that apparently my little girl furniture was white lacquer. How do I not remember this and why is it not stored somewhere! The horror. Alas, I digress. 

Right now I’m especially loving the white lacquer against contrasting colored walls (my office is dark grey and I’m dying for a white lacquer rectangular dining room table enclosed in rich navy walls! Divine). In my hunt for all things white lacquer I came thisclose to purchasing the awesome West Elm parsons desk pictured below (I instead went with the larger Z Gallerie Jett) however we need new desks for the new office space and I’m all about these again. Well, until I found the identical desk — with killer reviews — on Overstock. Not surprising since Overstock is where I also found our West Elm-duped leather chairs.  

 Ogle: West Elm ($349) // Own: Overstock ($144)

 PS: speaking of offices, as I mentioned last week I moved into new office space from a home office. This means that everything — computer included — is gone. While I’m about to take the plunge with a MacBook (yay!) I currently cannot blog at night when I usually do. Kind of devastating for moi. Hang on tight… will do my best to get a blog post a day to you!

    You’re going to have the sweetest office ever! Makes me want to go work for myself and get out of cube farm! This is the BEST find ever! They are very very similar - and at more than half the price? YES! Can’t wait to see you’re finished office!

      I know, right? Very similar though more of a bright white than a true lacquer. So excited about the office… just instagrammed a photo of a new reception area chair. It’s a slow process but fun to get some new furniture!

    I hope you do a post when your office is all decorated.  I want to see it!  I am loving the white lacquer desk.  I would love to do a white lacquer guest bedroom since it is a beach theme.

    my weak spot - i have a white lacquered furniture obsession! wish i had known about these steals instead of splurging on our west elm desks! it’s ok though, i’m completely head over heels for them! happy early mother’s day alyson!

      thanks so much! Just received the desk, not quite as lacquer so the west elm is still a good option however it’s a great bright white.

    The overstock version isn’t a lacquer finish though. :(
