The design still looks great, expanded to 4 feet long. What makes it work so well is the beautiful finish on the wood, contrasted to the utilitarian metal parts. Incidentally, WD40 will remove the price stickers on the metal parts. Or is that the ultimate touch of utility?

Another subtle thing: your sense of proportion also goes far in making these stands look so great. That would be easy to mess up, for someone like me.
