Furniture with hairpin legs seems like a perfect idea for the bathroom, given how limited the space usually is here. By choosing an open design for your vanity or cabinet you maximize the illusion of space and there’s still plenty of room for storage underneath if you use baskets. There’s also another possibility: to support the washbasin itself with hairpin legs.

Hairpin legs may look flimsy and thin but they’re very sturdy and strong so they can easily support a sofa or a bench. You can build your own custom-made piece by adding a wooden top and a few comfy cushions or a mattress or you can leave it as such as use it as a bench for the bedroom. Place it at the end of the bed and it will fit perfectly.
