9 Metal Table Leg Styles for Live Edge Furniture

Posted by shelby Barnhart on


When live edge furniture became wildly popular again in 2013 (first in the 1940s) so did the metal table base. Strong enough to support the weight of a slab tabletop; metal legs and table bases began popping up everywhere to support a custom “DIY” inspired market. 


At first, we witnessed an influx of square stock, simple rectangular bases, and trestles but now, there’s no limit as to what type of base you can see. Here are 9 classic styles that support live edge pieces, dining tables, coffee tables, and end tables.
