My new workspace desk from the hairpin leg company.


I was so excited to assemble my new workspace desk from the hairpin leg company last week. hairpin leg It only took a few minutes to attach those pretty mint coloured hairpin legs on.

The hairpin leg company was borne out of the entrepreneurial vision of Adam and Tom, an English design duo who love unique items that marry form with function. Originally invented by Henry P Glass, hairpin legs were created as a minimal, stylish and sturdy solution for furniture.

If you like mid century modern style, then these legs are perfect. You can pick from a variety of finishes, sizes and colours. They screw on easily into any wood surfaces, for you to create your own tables, chairs, benches or even little cabinets on legs. You can purchase the table tops from the hairpin leg company too, such as mine, made of Formica coated birch.

I really love the minty green legs, but you can pick from duck egg blue, yellow, red, orange and even Copper. The legs also come with floor protectors that slip on easily.

I’ve styled my new workspace in pastel shades. I love the combination of light pinks with light greens, and the occasional pop of gold or yellow. Here’s a slightly closer view of what is on my desk. So, what do you think of my new workspace? I will be showing you more of it, styled differently in future posts. Can’t wait to share.

What would you do with your hairpin legs? Which colours would you pick? For more inspiration, do check out the amazing DIYs on the hairpin leg company’s blog. If you fancy seeing my old workspaces, then check out the post here.

I’ll be back real soon with more interiors post and also a look into my trip to Tokyo and Hong Kong, during the Summer holidays.

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

  1. Absolutely stunning! And so refreshing to see a workspace which is plug-free. My husband works in IT so every office we’ve had has had hat least 4 computers. SO difficult to make pretty haha

    The space is bright, airy and fun. I’m trying to see where you got the picture frames. They’re the right color and size.

      Dear Kenya,
      You could try Etsy UK or Desenio. The ones I have were painted with gold paint as a DIY.
