Table Legs – What is the difference between all our Table Legs?
By: Gareth Jones
Our Table Legs are generally split into 2 main types;
Round – a simple circular leg with either a 60mm or 80mm diameter, available in a range of heights and colours.
Conical – a tapered leg that starts of thicker at the top and then slims down towards the foot to give a designer conical effect.
Within these categories we stock a wide variety of sizes and finishes, all available from stock. Our Table Legs are extremely durable, with strong heavy duty top plates to attach to any table tops and then the legs simply screw into the top plate.
Table Leg heights explained:
- The most common height of a table leg, known as desk height, is 690mm height and this is an industry standard for all office furniture like desks and cupboards. Most office furniture table legs are found in silver or a grey colour to match desk frames and filing cabinets. They can be used individually as support at the end of a desk, or as a set of 4 to support any size table top.
- Another place you see table legs is in the kitchen, which has an industry standard height of 870mm and is otherwise known as breakfast bar height. In kitchens it is common to see a high end polished chrome leg as it generally matches kitchen sinks and ovens.
- Conical legs are often found at coffee table height which is what we class as 450mm tall, and these are again often found in a simple silver colour. This is the option for low level tables as the legs are much shorter than usual giving them minimal use in offices and kitchens; they are designed for long narrow tables like coffee tables for entrance halls and reception areas.
- An additional height of leg that we supply is called poseur height, which is a term often used when talking about tall tables you stand at or with tall designer chairs you often find in café bars and restaurants, and they are made to be 1100mm in height. Because of the height of the legs they are reinforced to stop them buckling under the weight.
