Things We Love: Bobbin Chairs

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.

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.

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

Things We Love: Telescopes

Turquoise, Tulips and Bliss
Long the best friend of birdwatchers and stargazers, the telescope might just have a new acquaintance: the interior designer. Whether it’s a brand new model perfect for scoping out even the most faraway constellations or a priceless antique whose hard work is through, a telescope is a stylish addition to any room.

mirrors are not only essential in any dressing space

but also add light and interest to the doors in spaces that, otherwise, could be just a bit bland.

Show-Stopping Stripes




Picture Perfect Home

While as a clothing choice they’re said to be unflattering, as a design technique horizontal stripes are anything but. From subtle tan to bold black, horizontal stripes on the wall are unique, eye-catching and fresh. We think you’ll agree that, from the shower to the dining room, these stripes completely steal the show.
