The table is supported by square section tapering fluted legs, with ankle cuffs over a square hoof style foot standing on semi-concealed castors. The fluting on used on the frieze and legs of this table is echoed in designs by Robert Adam.

Adam must be considered along with Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton in the development of English furniture styles. Though he was not a cabinet-maker, Adam was one of the first to consider furniture fully worthy of an architect's attention.
