Make sure the problem is due to racking and not rocking.

If the legs don’t sit flat on the floor, and it rocks when you lean on it… use leg levelers.

If it feels unstable and racks a bit when you lean on it… attach inside corbels. You can use a simple doweling jig to attach decorative corbels between the apron and the inside face of the leg.
They aren’t very obtrusive, and still allow plenty of legroom. By altering the shape and size of the corbel, they can be used with almost any style.
