Spool Chair Knock Off


I am a huge fan of the "Spool Chair" made by Hickory Chair.  It's timeless really, and I've recommended it to many clients.  The Spool Chair never disappoints.  One of my favorite things about this chair is how it looks from the back.  It looks good coming and going...



This living room was from a former project of mine, and featured in the February issue of Lonny Magazine.  The clients bought two Spool Chairs for their living room, and we had them upholstered in a cream linen...



This morning, I went through my files and found the Spool Chair again here...



and, here too.



It seems that even the First Lady is a fan of the Spool Chair.  Here she is photographed by the Washington Post in a chair said to be selected for the family's personal quaters of the White House.  So, it seems that Michael Smith (the Obama's interior designer) is a fan too!


And now I see that Wisteria is offering a Spool Chair knock off! 




They call it the "European Spindle Chair" and it's only $599.00!  I know.  So cheap.  But, I am sorry to say that the fine print reads assembly required.  So, I'm not sure at how strong this baby will feel when in use.  But it sure is pretty to look at.

Very chic! Those are seriously impossible to come by in Norway.

Hickory Chair was not the first "maker" of this classic style chair, therefore its not really a "knock off". The Wisteria version (and Pottery Barn version, and CL Laine version, etc.) is merely a different take at a different price point. Just wanted to point that out. Yikes on assembly!

Our spool chair requires no assembly. Made from solid oak wood this chair is sturdy yet comfortable. We offer free shipping in the US and a great return policy. We can customize the finish and fabrics.
