My heart skipped a beat when I discovered the newly launched Bobbin Collection, a timeless furniture collaboration between Chelsea Textiles and leading British interior design house, Turner Pocock.

The Bobbin Collection is a range of furniture which includes custom made bedside and console tables as well as striking single beds, perfect for a guest or children’s bedroom.

Made to order, the pieces can be painted in variety of colours from Chelsea Textiles’ bespoke paint colour collection, enabling you to match them with your own interior scheme.

I really love the charm of furtniture with bobbin or ‘spool’ detail. It is such a whimsical design but one that is classic and timeless.

Forever pieces, this collection is sure to be enjoyed now and treasured for generations to come. What particularly draws me to this range is the versatility of the pieces, budget permitting (!) you could buy several, such as a single bed and bedside tables to use in a bedroom, or simply purchase a console table to make a statement in your hallway.

“The collection manages to be both cheerfully unpretentious – and so perfect for a child’s bedroom or playroom – and naturally elegant, lending itself to a more sophisticated, grown-up room. It’s lovely to see the versatility which made the style so popular in the past still applies today,”

Jenny Simpson, Design Director of Chelsea Textiles.

The history of bobbin furniture is fascinating.  First introduced to the US and Northern Europe market in the mid 17th Century, furniture makers used the remnants from the producers of sewing bobbins to create their designs! This collection manages to embrace the ethos of the original bobbin antique furniture but re-imagines it for the way we live today.

You can view the complete Bobbin Collection online or at the beautiful Chelsea Textliles showroom.
