Spindle, spool, bobbin… Whatever you call these fabulous chairs, originally conceived in the early 18th century, we love that designers are putting their contemporary spin on this old favorite. In spots where a club chair is too solid but a french chair is too formal and a plain wooden frame seems a little ordinary, a spindle chair is a breath of fresh air.

I’m partial to white, off-white or distressed finishes, myself.

I love a dark piece to anchor a room, but, when it comes to these chairs, I think the roundness of the spools calls for the softness of the lighter shades.

Mom is more a fan of the darker shades.

That is a shocking revelation as I truly believe she would live in a house of all gleaming, shiny white if possible.

The true, dark black is her favorite shade of spindle chair.

I’ll have to admit that it does work well with a darker patterned fabric…

What do you think about this look? Is it timeless or a passing trend?
