Legs that will transform your furniture

Our steel legs in brass, chrome, and matte black have become real bestsellers. We named these legs after our designer and her daughter, Sara, and Ilse, and their timeless elegance will transform your furniture, giving it a highly elevated look.

Product facts

Each leg can hold 150 lbs and has a universal fitting plate, and works on most furniture with a flat surface. Some of the most popular IKEA pieces upgraded with these legs are the Besta, Sektion, Kallax, Bryggja, and Normela, along with other non-IKEA furniture.

You attach them with four screws, using the holes most suitable for your piece of furniture. Choose between a polished brass or chrome plating, or powder-coated matte black finish.

Both the Sara leg and the Ilse leg will give your piece of furniture an added height of 6 3/4". The dimensions are as illustrated below:

We sell the legs individually, which means that you need four legs for a regular-sized cabinet. For longer units, 3+ doors, we recommend adding the Ilse legs as support in the center, as shown in the illustration below.

Attach legs 

Place the plate about 1/4" from the edge of the unit for maximum stability. The Ilse leg serves both as a support leg, and as a stylish leg on its own.

When you have a sideboard with three doors, we recommend adding either one or two Ilse legs as support. If you're only adding one leg, place it in the center both vertically and horizontally. If you're adding two Ilse legs, put them in line with the Sara legs as in the image below.

If you're connecting multiple units, like two Besta double cabinets below, add the Ilse legs where the two units meet for ultimate support. We have a YouTube video demonstrating this as well.

Elevating your Sektion frame by adding our legs can create a beautiful sideboard, or entryway console. The Sektion frame was originally designed for mounting but you can add legs for extra height and beauty. In the case of elevating with our legs, you don't need to add the felt risers but please attach them to the wall for maximum safety. We recommend 4x Sara or Ilse legs for the single frame and 4x Sara and 2x Ilse legs (or 6x Ilse legs) for the double frame.
