Cabinet & Furniture Feet
|Furniture feet at Osborne Wood Products, Inc. are formed in many creative shapes. Many are round in nature, and are also referred to as bun feet. While the Tulip Design is one of the most popular shapes in the square ogee arena it also has found its way on many trunks, chests, and kitchen applications in its round form. At 4 3/4 it can be used at its full height for trunks and furniture feet as well as being trimmed for kitchen applications. Like many of our other bun feet styles, the Tulip feet are sanded to 150 grit, giving these feet the Osborne mark of excellence.|
|In the past, square bun feet have been limited to square taper furniture feet. Today with the use of rotary knife lathes we can incorporate the many shapes of the round bun feet into a broad collection of square furniture feet. The shapes appear to be totally unique even though the patterns are the same. One might compare the tulip round bun, part 4100, to the tulip square bun, part 4102 to see the similarities and differences of these furniture feet. As typical with Osborne Wood Products quality, these parts are carefully sanded to 150 grit. These elements carry the simple elegance that has set the standard for furniture feet today.|
|Osborne Wood Products, Inc. carries a variety of furniture feet with the ogee profile. These feet are either square as with the Square Tulip design, part 4102, or the most popular furniture feet that are made from ogee moldings such as our 4300 design. Cabinet makers who appreciate the square look of the Square Tulip will sometimes trim some off of the bottom if their toe plate is under 4 3/4". As for the molding, at 4" tall it meets the needs of most modern cabinet designs. These parts are all carefully sanded to 150 grit guaranteeing satisfaction in both quality and design. As with all Osborne creations, the simple elegance of these furniture feet already graces many kitchens.|
|Sofa legs at Osborne Wood Products, Inc are designs that sofa manufacturers have requested to be made to their exacting specifications. The designs of these furniture feet vary as the functions and character of each furniture item is developed. From the Albany, part 41033, with its square block top construction made to lock into the sturdy frame elements of the commercial sofa unit to the Dalton, part 41231, made to accentuate the delicacies of a finally crafted ottoman, these furniture feet display the simple elegance that Osborne products has been known for since 1979. With 150 grit sanding, these furniture feet are ready to assemble into the well designed creations of the most discriminating craftsman.|
Cabinet and Furniture Feet
Furniture feet can include everything from turned legs to bun feet and chair legs. During the Victorian period, furniture legs and furniture feet were discretely hidden by tapestry. It was the finest fabric used to hide parts that people of that time actually associated with human anatomy. While to today's mind such thoughts are preposterous, during this period of history virtue was so extolled that no extent of protective care of the minds of men would be considered extreme. As time moved forward the tapestry was lifted. Furniture designs moved towards the development of Queen Anne legs, fine carvings, and furniture feet. While styles varied by region and period, these basic parts of furniture design have developed as useful parts of daily living which transcend time and culture.
Today we find furniture feet on various trunks, chests of drawers, armories, as well as kitchen cabinetry. The feet on cabinetry varies in style; from sofa legs, wood bun feet and ogee bracket furniture feet, to the highly styled carved claw feet and Queen Anne style vanity legs. These hand crafted feet add to both the simple elegance of many a kitchen as well as the value of the same. Many of the elaborate designs of period furniture feet now are appearing in our kitchen living spaces with a flare of the warmth of a living room romance in the family setting of the kitchen.
