Trestles v. Sawhorses

What timing!  I just had to point out the Tolix Trestles in this afternoon’s post on Remodelista. $595 v. $50 for 2 trestles (posted earlier today).  Yes…theirs are chic, sleek and French with no bolts showing..but the legs don’t adjust from dining to coffee table height, now do they?   Both are powder coated steel.  If I’m paying $1200 for a complete table…I don’t want it to look even CLOSE to something that might get done for $75.  There is always this danger with an industrial chic look.  Designer v. Down and Dirty… you decide…just sayin’.
