They’re called spool chairs, spindle chairs and bobbin chairs, but whatever you choose to call them, this stylish design of chair was featured in just about every showroom at the most recent High Point Market. Clearly, the spool chair is a popular choice in interior design right now, and the classic good looks of this piece may be why. The chair above, recently on display at Knox Furniture in Newnan, is the Soho Accent Chair from Universal Furniture, part of its Sundance collection. This popular style of chair would be right at home in many different styles of decor.
The spool chair has been around for centuries, and some say it dates to the 1600s and originated in New England. Manufacturers today are updating this chair with fresh, new fabrics to make it at home in even the most contemporary setting. The Soho Accent Chair, for instance, features Bohemian Oak and 100 percent Belgian linen upholstery.
