Be sure to check outour guest post onHome Bunchtoday! We’re sharing our favorite cottages in the lovely Luciane’s cottage series while she’s using her talents for one of her design projects — not to mention taking care of her kiddos! Thanks for having us, Luciane!
We are so thrilled today to have a guest post from Jennifer ofJWS Interiors, a Northern Virginia interior designer with gorgeous taste! She has put together a fabulous design board for us to get inspired, complete with a list of links for finding these drool-worthy pieces to incorporate into any decor. Enjoy!
We stumbled upon a few of the gorgeous designs by Peter Zimmerman and John Toates of Peter Zimmerman Architects and are totally obsessed. In their words, their “design philosophy is deeply rooted in the historic traditions of architecture: classical proportion and scale, the balance of shadow and light, and the importance of the sustainable relationship between materials.” Those are just a few of the reasons we think these architects’ work is in good taste.
Phoebe Howard 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.
Phoebe Howard I’m partial to white, off-white or distressed finishes, myself.
Massucco, Miller and Warner 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.
VT Interiors That is a shocking revelation as I truly believe she would live in a house of all gleaming, shiny white if possible.
Miguel Flores Photography 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…
Caitlin Creer Interiors But, ahhhh, aren’t those just stunning?
Christina Murphy Design No matter what the color, we both agree that we love the style of these unique chairs.
What do you think about this look? Is it timeless or a passing trend?
