The 2” x 3” legs are dado-ed on the their corners to accommodate the top, shelf and bottom. A tall end table of sorts, or a stand I guess. It’s put together with scrap plywood, I’m told. Nothing too special, but does this have enough detail to qualify as being part of a style? And, what would that be? (Sorry for the side shot.)

If finished well—Mid-City Modern?

As is—Shabby Chic? (Or “Flea Market”)

(It reminds me of the 1970s…)

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.
