From left to right:

Hairpin

These metal legs can skew industrial or modern.

Unfinished Wood

Available in an array of woods. These legs are inspired by designer Hans Wegner.

Wegner Danish Modern dining-table leg, 27 inches, in Soft Maple, $26, tablelegs.com

Stainless Steel

Column legs make any coffee or side table look contemporary. (You can also give existing furniture a leg makeover.)

Alice leg, 12 inches, in Brushed Stainless, $36, ferroushardware.com

Tapered

These have a classic midcentury shape. Get the bracket that positions legs at an angle for a sleek-looking console or coffee table.

McCobb leg, 16 inches, in Soft Maple, $18, tablelegs.com

Slim Brass

If a table is going to bear a heavy load, check the leg's weight restriction (multiply by how many legs you'll use).

Dunbar brass-plated tapered leg, 8 inches, in Polished Brass, $56, ferroushardware.com

Powder-Coated Hairpin

The synthetic coating ups the cost of each leg but also adds a pop of color.

I bought nice sturdy steel legs on TableLegsOnline.com for a DIY project last month.

I considered the hairpin legs but they look .....a little cheap. There are reasonably priced alternatives. I ended up buying legs on Etsy at Dirt Frog Furniture. The guy was really helpful and made custom legs at a very reasonable price. I now have a great table that I made myself.:) heres a link to their store. https://www.etsy.com/shop/DirtFrogFurniture
