The first product designed by TIPTOE, the 75 cm modular desk and table leg is the flagship concept of the brand. It supports our desire to create beautiful, useful and durable furniture for you and with you. The principle? Be able to install, with in a few minutes and without tools, a dining room table, a desk or a side table, depending on the table top that you use with our legs. By playing with the dimensions of the top or its style, you can transform your furniture at will.

Clever stuff!

An ideal height for working

The height of these TIPTOE legs is 75 cm, a height that was not chosen by chance as it guarantees optimal seating comfort. But functionality would be nothing without a stylish design. The TIPTOE table legs reinvent your interior.

A large choice of colors

Available in a range of 9 epoxy paints, they lend themselves to your every whim and fancy. In a soft and feminine universe, or in a more audacious and authentic style, you can create radically different office spaces to which the color of the TIPTOE legs bring character!


Choice of the top, a tougher choice than it may seem

120 X 60 CM

The ingenuity of TIPTOE legs lies in their patented system of screw tightening that adapts to a wide variety of tops. This provides you with a clever way to change your décor as often as you like. Still, there are a few rules to follow to make sure you build your furniture safely. The thickness of the wooden tops must be between 30 and 40 mm, with a tolerance of up to 41 mm maximum. Yes, at TIPTOE, we like precision. With 4 legs, the dimensions of your table or desk can be up to 180×100 cm and support 70 kg. These generous dimensions can accommodate 6 to 8 people.

For the top, bear in mind that we have avoided glass or any other brittle material.

Making your own TIPTOE desk, nothing could be easier!

For your desk, you have finally chosen your TIPTOE legs and the top of your dreams. It’s time to start putting it together. This is a simple step that anyone can do, even those who do not feel they are much of a handyman. Don’t believe us? Just follow the guide!

  • Place your desk top against a wall.
  • Install the legs where you want them.

All you have to do is turn your desk over, position it where you like and decorate it as you wish. Did we not say it was this easy?

Ready-made desks, what do you say?

120 cm x 60 cm

At TIPTOE, we have thought about all types of people. Creative types who seek modular and customisable solutions, and busy types looking for ready-to-assemble desks. The NOMA desk combines 4 TIPTOE legs in the colour of your choice and a top made of wood oak or recycled old wood. The result is trendy desks that enhance your workspace, whatever the style of your interior decoration.

White legs, waxed concrete floor and round paper light fixtures for a Japanese atmosphere. Or black legs, weathered wood floors and vintage wall decorations for a more authentic look. It’s amazing what you can imagine around a piece of TIPTOE furniture.

Those looking for more storage should be won over by the MONOCHROME desk and its additional storage module called WAVE : 3 steel drawers that are simply attached to the tabletop with the TIPTOE leg clamp. This is the option chosen by Janelle who has created a cheerful and colourful office space, just like her personality!


Assembling the MONOCHROME desk couldn’t be easier! There is only one step in addition to those previously described: fixing the WAVE drawers. Choose the position of your drawer on the tabletop, slide the steel sheet between the tabletop and the leg and then tighten the TIPTOE legs to secure it. Add the drawers and you’re done!

And for small spaces?

For those who do not have a lot of floor space, TIPTOE has come up with the wall desk. This innovative combo features TIPTOE legs with the BRACKET wall mounts. In its ready-to-assemble or customisable version, the wall desk fits into any interior, even the narrowest. And always with the same ease of assembly!
