Metal Coffee Table Legs

Metal Coffee Table Legs

Metal legs on a coffee table don’t need to be replaced very often. Metal does not crack or splinter like wood and is unlikely to become unusable in an unexpected flood.

However, there are several reasons why people are looking for metal legs for coffee tables. They can be craftsmen building their own furniture. You may want to swap out the legs of a table so it sits higher or lower on the floor. Or you might want to replace the table’s existing metal or wooden legs with legs that match a new decor.

There is a surprisingly wide range of metal coffee table legs on the market, suitable for all of these purposes. The right table legs depend on the required size, height, thickness and load capacity, especially the size and type of table top to be supported. Even more important is whether the legs match the table top and the rest of the room design.

Coffee table legs are made from many different metals, including steel, iron, and aluminum. They are available in various metal finishes such as polished chrome, brushed aluminum and matte nickel. It goes without saying that a material like aluminum is usually significantly cheaper than wrought iron. The latter is perfect for an antique flair.

The most popular choice for lighter coffee tables is a set of relatively thin metal bobby pins that are rounded at the bottom and wide at the top. These legs usually have an “L” bracket that can be screwed into a wood or metal framed table or used as a support for glass. Similar but sturdier bracket-shaped tapered industrial metal legs can support a heavier table top. Any of these options will pair well with mid-century modern decor.

More modern metal coffee table legs with wide feet come in A-frame, H-frame, trestle, X-style or geometric designs. Most feature sleek metal finishes, but some also come in designer colors. For an ultra-modern look and easy assembly, there’s even “Floyd” legs in a variety of traditional and pastel colors that easily attach to virtually any type of tabletop (except glass or tile).

The most common heights for metal coffee table legs are 14 inches and 16 inches, but shorter legs are available at 8 inches or 28 inches. Most vendors sell them in packs of two, four, or eight.
