Currently Loving: Spindle/Spool Beds

I am currently using a classic spool bed in a beach house project I’m working on and am really feeling quite into them for all sorts of spaces.  Especially when lacquered a glossy dark color like this amazing space by the fabulous Tilton Fenwick ladies.


I simply ADORE this room- the traditional paper mixed with the modern side table and bold punches of chartreuse are just perfect! Such a happy space!


Clean, classic and lots of spindles and spools…. chairs are my OTHER favorite use of spindles.


Monochromatic, soothing and serene.


Sheryl Crow’s bedroom even has one. Like most things, I love the black!


A more modern version of the spool…..


You can search eBay, Etsy and antique shops and flea markets for vintage ones that you can have painted with a dramatic high gloss paint!


I love this vintage spindle daybed from 1st Dibs– could be a great bench for a living room or large entry!


These two are available in various finishes and colors.



I quite this this one from Noir


This one is rather dramatic!



  1. I love spindle beds! Land of Nod has some great brightly colored Jenny Lind beds for kids. I kind of want a red or turquoise one for myself :)

  2. I would love a bed like this. I have a special needs pet therefore I have to have a platform bed. Yes, he sleeps with me and no, he won’t use those little stairs to climb into bed. So my design choices are dictated by his needs. And I am sure you and many of your readers understand that. But I really love these beds. What we do for our pets!!

  3. love these designs! when I was designing my bedroom I used the Color911 app, it was so helpful! I suggest you take a look at it. and I really love that style of bed! So cool!
