Hairpin legs are a design style that was designed at the turn of the century. Their clean lines and unique style was complimented by their sturdy nature – they are made of solid steel after all. Sometimes an original piece of hairpin furniture resurfaces and we get to see the crazy things that were made with hairpin legs in the past – birdcages and lamps for example. How long does hairpin furniture last? It’s been going strong since it was invented and some of the original legs and chair are still around.
