Fabulous Furniture With Hairpin Legs

Furniture With Hairpin Legs: Hairpin legs were created by inventor Henry P. Glass and industrial designer Russel Wright in 1941. The design only required a minimum amount of steel which was just as well because, during WWII, materials were scarce. The hairpin legs look like hairpins, hence the name. The legs are sturdy and stylish, which is what good design is all about. Mid-Century Modern furniture incorporated hairpin legs, which is why the style has a retro vibe. I’ve picked out my favourite furniture with hairpin legs to share with you. The round-up includes dining tables, seating, units, side tables, nesting tables, a TV stand and more.
