If finished well—Mid-City Modern?

As is—Shabby Chic? (Or “Flea Market”)

(It reminds me of the 1970s…)

DIY style?

Wait, I got it…Ole Chip N’ Dale.

I made myself laugh at least.

Yeah, I’m intrigued by art history, aesthetic discipline, the act of categorizing….

I’m rummaging in my head how this basic platform can be modified to make a more recognizable style.

Looks like a good example of the “Future Kindling” school of design. I have made several such pieces in my time.

As basic as it is, I think you would be better to start from scratch rather than modify it.

That said, you could make a new top with a built up routed edge profile that would drop over the old top and legs. Then you could add trim to the middle and bottom shelf edges. On the legs you could plant on a new pieces that have some flutes in it or add a pc of rope molding.
The profiles you pick and the way you apply them will determine the style of the piece.

I think you’re right. More vertical supports between the legs, and you have mission style; three strips of vertical molding with a router down the legs, or look at art deco—at least with this piece.

Answering just the “style” question, I believe that the 45 degree rotated external leg motif was common in mid-century modern furniture.

My parents bought lots of moderately expensive (i.e. not Ikea type stuff) furniture in the early 70’s (mostly walnut veneer and solid oak together) that had this motif. I think that time period had sort of a mishmash of “mid mod” and “danish” style furniture. Not sure if this came directly from one of those schools or not.

Utilitarian Style? Scrap Bin Chic? College Blocks and Boards Style? Do you have a specific use in mind for this piece? Let that determine the style, if you really need to characterize it as a specific existing style. Hey! start your own trend!

It’s definitely not Green & Green it looks more like Short & Black!
It’s simplicity is reminiscent of Danish but then for Danish the color is wrong!
