When shopping with Furnish Green, we make sure to note how special or unique a piece is.Â This is simply to inform and graciously prepare you with some wonderful talking points for your next get-together!

Currently, there is a great assortment ofÂ vintage and antique pieces with splayed legs.
You may be asking yourself, what are splayed legs? That is a wonderful question. Kudos to you sharp Furnish Greeners, always willing to learn!
Splayed legs (or saber legs) flare out in a concave shape. At times, they can be round or squared and oftenÂ gradually tapered.Â These are usually found on a chair, stool, table or sofa.Â Fine splayed legs date back to the early 19th centuryÂ with designers such as Thomas Sheraton and thrived in Empire, Regency and Federal furniture styles.
So now, it is time for us to stop teasing and show a little Mid Century, Atomic and Danish Modern leg.
