Metal Coffee Table Legs: Are They Sturdy?

Is it time for a new coffee table or a facelift for an existing one? Choosing the right legs for the project is always an important step. You’ll want your  coffee table to be functional for a variety of uses and be attractive as well. Metal hairpin legs are always a great choice for a coffee table but sometimes customers ask us about their stability. Our hairpin legs are not just attractive – they are very sturdy too. Take a look at some of the beautiful (and very durable) furniture Jeff from NuModern just sent in using our classic hairpin legs and our 3 rod hairpin legs.


To ensure their stability it is important to be sure they are properly attached to the tabletop surface. Check out our FAQ for more specifics on attaching the legs to the tabletop. You can feel confident that properly attached legs will hold hundreds of pounds. If you are worried about extra weight our bench legs, 3 rod hairpin legs, and Just the Tip hairpin legs are good options for added stability – all of which are good choices for coffee tables. And of course, if you’re using our metal cofee table legs for something unique, you can always contact us to speak about the specifics of your project. Every pair of legs we make is made custom for each order right here in the USA from high quality steel. Before you know it you’ll have a sturdy new coffee table getting compliments from your friends! Send us a pic of your creation when you’re done!
