Hairpin Leg Collection

When you want to go retro with a modern twist, you’ll want one of our contemporary desks, tables or workstations with hairpin legs. At Urban 9-5, we make modern office furniture for companies that appreciate form as much as function.

Hairpin legs were first seen in the U.S. in the early 1940s, when materials such as wood and metal were hard to come by, due to the demands of fighting World War II. Using hairpin legs made it possible to continue producing tables, chairs, desks and any other furniture that needed support.

The mid-century modern style of hairpin legs gives furniture a streamlined look that’s reliably strong without being bulky. The spindly legs are thin and sleek, making the furniture lightweight, but because they’re solid metal, they hold more weight than you would expect. Urban 9-5 uses rebar in copper, silver, black and white for our Hairpin Leg Office Furniture Collection, bringing a gritty, industrial feel to office furniture made for the discriminating shopper.

We build office coffee tables, workstations, executive metal desks, reclaimed wood desks and more, all with distinctive hairpin legs. Pair your unique desks and tables with aviator office furniture such as riveted chairs, swivel chairs and framed wall art of prop planes.

Whether you have a home office in the basement or a lease on a chic suite downtown, Urban 9-5’s unique office furniture with mid-century modern hairpin legs will help you create the ambience you need for inspiring creativity and closing deals.
