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.

Caitlin Creer Interiors But, ahhhh, aren’t those just stunning?

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.
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.
