“We’ve seen a lot of requests for simple, less ornate pieces," says Haden Smith, CAD Specialist at Osborne Wood Products. "But we also get a lot of requests for extremely ornate and detailed pieces. It really depends on what our customers want. That is going to be the major factor in what designs can be expected in the future.”
In addition to chair legs as an unfinished component, a plan for a release of full chair kits is now being finalized in product development at Osborne Wood Products.
Osborne says the new legs, which feature a clean streamlined look, represent very different styles. The first is a modern sofa foot, standing at 8 inches high, and aimed at replacing old sofa legs to give an existing furniture piece an upscale, modern appeal.
The second leg to be introduced is the Highland Manor Chair leg. Described as "delicately turned for a more ornate feel," the Highland Manor is 12 inches high by 2 inches wide. Though seemingly small, its sturdiness allows this chair leg to fit many designs.
