love at first sight: spindles

Confession: I scrapped today's originally scheduled post.  A sweet co-worker was sharing photos from a listing for a potential new home and upon seeing an old spindle bed in one picture, I knew I had today's post.  Spindle love. 

Here's what we know about spindles... 

1.  They go way back.  Think early 17th century.  Western Europe.
2.  Spindles take inspiration from simple things, like sewing bobbins.
3.  From traditional to contemporary, spindles work in all design settings.  

And here are our favorite spindle options...

Pretty chair (with an even prettier price tag) from Horchow...  

Can you say cottage chic?  Love this side table from Layla Grace...

Want a pair of these beds from Land of Nod in a room for little ones... 

Do you love spindles as much as we do?
Want your own spindles?  Gigi and I are on the hunt!  
Look for Splash of Lime spindle options soon!
