What is "Live Edge"?

Live edge is one of the latest trends in the design world. It's is a style of furniture that incorporates a piece of wood's natural edge into the design. Live edge furniture is one-of-a-kind because each piece embraces the natural beauty and unique features of the specific wood used.

While incorporating reclaimed lumber is a great way to bring a slice of history into your home, live edge items are also a wonderful way to preserve the character of the original material. Although the possibilities are endless, popular natural edge furniture pieces include tables, mantels, countertops and desks.
