Mid Century Marvels - Hairpin Furniture

Hairpin furniture is the bees knees. It's a mid century staple. I love the way you can juxtapose a heavy slab of wood with hairpin legs to make it appear like it's floating. The good news can do it yourself and it's really affordable. Check out Silvia Song's blog post for a DIY hairpin coffee table.

Here are a few images to show you the possibilities.
