Firelight's Reclaimed Wood Hairpin Leg Desks


It all started when...

"There is a war between the ones who say there is a war and the ones who say there isn't."  — Leonard Cohen

Hairpin legs, invented by Henry Glass in 1941, were a true war-time invention. Their design limited the amount of material needed while keeping the strength of traditional legs. A true story of form meets function.

Strong steel wire makes a lofty, light looking table leg, tripled up in this case for strength. The hairpin leg is minimalist, which puts the focus on the reclaimed character of the table top.
