Bobbin furniture and accessories have made a comeback in the last few years and the trend sees no sign of waning. From ornate cabinets to quick updates like mirrors and picture frames, here are the pieces we’re loving right now, sure to bring some unique magic to a tired space.
The look may have originated from the 17th century but bobbin interiors have never felt so modern. This is partly due to the colourful update they’ve had in recent years, from pastel-hued accessories to bigger, more investment home pieces in anything from pillar box red to grassy green. And the beauty of this trend is that it really does work in every room of the house. Bobbin side tables in the bedroom add a certain cosiness, whilst a bobbin-trimmed mirror in a statement colour will add personality to a tired sink space in the bathroom. In the living room, bobbin furniture feels a little grander – think a bobbin-legged console or statement corner chair – thanks to its rich history that lies in craftsmanship.
Names to check out include Alfred Newall, a designer who makes the most exquisite bobbin furniture pieces, but also has a great range of smaller, ready-to-shop stock on his website and our favourite interiors store, Glassette. Wish list items are the stunning dark oak coffee table with bobbin legs and the charming little side tables trimmed with the 17th century-style spools and available in rich walnut woods to statement stained oaks.
For a quick home update that plays into the trend, check out Pooky for their bobbin spool table lamp stands. The Wobster table lamp in a popping lobster red is plumper than the usual bobbin effect, giving it a punchy feel that will take lead in a tired living space, whether that’s on a side table or doubled up on either side of a hallway console. We also love their bobbin candlesticks for a cheaper and affordable update – and a great gift for any interiors lovers.

The Wobster table lamp in a popping lobster red is plumper than the usual bobbin effect, giving it a punchy feel that will take lead in a tired living space. We love it paired against a contrasting pleated green lampshade.
Practical and pleasing, a statement chair trimmed with bobbin detailing will breathe new life into a tired corner of your living room. We love the muted tones of this ash and linen Graham & Green design.
