What helps define the style of a display case? You might be surprised but the legs of a display case really define the look and style probably more than any other part of the case. You may also be surprised that some of our display case have the same display areas, however, when the legs are changed you have a totally different looking display. Just for fun I’ll show you an example.
Here are some of the display case legs that are available on display cases. The style of leg helps define the environment whether it is in a museum, boutique, office lobby, university trophy room, or jewelry store.
Add another variation of color or stain and see what it does to the look. It is amazing, you can get an elegant, classy or even rustic look. Let us know what kind of environment you want to present and we can suggest the type of legs and finish that will accomplish the look you want.
The legs are tapered on the two inside sides. The look of the display can be dramatically changed depending whether the legs are thin and slender or thick and heavy.
Legs tapered on the outside give more of a European look. Again, the look of the display is created by the thickness of the legs.
Tapered on all Sides
Legs tapered on all sides are reminiscent of contemporary furniture in the 60’s.
Tapered Round Legs
Tapered round legs are a classy look of the 1950’s modern furniture.
Straight legs can look classy with and without details. Changing the thickness of the leg give a totally different look.
Straight side panel legs give a very clean contemporary look or an elegant look depending upon how they are finished. Panel legs can be added to most horizontal or tower cases. The legs can range in thickness from ¾” to 5” thick. We can provide a rendering to show you just how the legs would look on a case built for you.
Turned legs give a very distinguished look that fits well on jewelry display cases. We recently built some beautiful display cases for a jewelry store in Maryland.
