I like the design. I think making the legs or center support thicker or beefier would detract from the elegance of the design.

Dowels from the leg centers into the support might help strengthen the joints there. You might also consider an ‘X’ formed from two 1/4” thick hardwood strips to connect the tops of the legs under the top would stiffen the overall structure. I don’t think they’d be visible from normal viewing angles.
