The cabriole leg has been produced by furniture makers in thousands of variations since its heyday in the 18th century. This collection shows how the furniture makers of today are putting a new spin on the cabriole. These updated versions range from the subtle, stretched version created by Ted Blachly, to the shaped top and bottoms by Peter Shepard, to the twinned cabrioles and innovative joinery of Jere Osgood, to the whimsical legs James Schriber used on his wood-and-metal side tables.
