Depending on the joinery at the top, wouldn't think you'd have to have a stretcher, but depends on what the client wants and how it's going to be used. If it's going to hold a marble sculpture or a delicate piece (that could fall if wobbly), it may be warranted. For an end table that holds a lamp and a cup of coffee once in a while, it looks like it would look good without any.
