Live edge tables are both environmentally friendly and beautiful.
You have many different sources for getting beautiful and functional furniture for your Durham, North Carolina home or as an interior designer assisting a client with home decorating. One of the most popular table options these days is custom-crafted live edge tables. Here at WKS Wood Design, we can take your imagination and create beautiful pieces worthy of becoming family heirlooms.
Live edge tables are a one-of-kind solid wood creation which involves incorporating the natural edge of the wood into the design. While they might be relatively new in terms of increased popularity, they have actually been around for several decades. By leaving the bark on the tree to create wood slabs and using these for live edge tables, part of their popularity revolves around the environmentally friendly practice that uses more of the tree. Not all live edge tables have the bark intact, however, which is always an option if you are looking for a more refined appearance.
Live edge tables can be crafted from single slabs from large trees, or they can also be created with multiple joined pieces of wood with the live edge pieces strategically placed. In this latter case, the live edge can be placed on the edges or put to the middle and use epoxy to fill the gap for a stunning effect. These are just a couple of the ideas that can be utilized when designing live edge tables. You are only limited by your imagination and finding the live edge wood that appeals to you and is the size you are looking for.
