Design Trend: Bobbin Chairs

     Bobbin Chairs have been around since the 17th century, but lately I'm seeing them in a lot of room designs.  They have a fun shape to add a textural element in a room without being oversized.  They usually have an upholstered element that is easy and inexpensive to change to an updated look.  I've found a few inspiration photos of Bobbin Chairs for you to see:

Aren't they lovely?  See how well they fit in to so many different room styles?
I just found my first Bobbin Chair and it turned out like this:
I'll definitely be on the lookout for more Bobbin Chairs.  I love the look of the darker finish and am anxious to try that look.
