This picture brought back the memory of when I first got married, some 37 years ago. We furnished our first apartment with these spool tables. I remember we covered them in red and black fur, of all things. And we stapled a strand of little red furry balls around the top edge. Put a spool on each end of our sofa, which was covered in fake black leather and red fur. Oh my god!
We were just starting out and we got the spools for free.
