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?
There are few things that lend a home rustic charm as beautifully as a room accented by stone. While there’s nothing cozier than the warmth of stone complemented by a roaring fireplace on a cold winter’s night, it’s equally as cool and crisp during a scorching summer. We generally think of stone as a mountain house staple, but these designers have shown that a natural material can be perfect in a more elegant space as well, even a modern bathroom.
