When you need a table, it is not like you don’t have many options to choose from! There are thousands of furniture stores and woodworking shops that can help you in your quest for a table. You can choose from something handmade, something secondhand, or even something mass-produced. If you are looking for something unique, something that has character and something that will make your space completely your own, you might want to find a table that has a live edge.
Live edge tables are not something that you are going to see very often in a mass-produced furniture store, since many of these tables are meant to be churned out as quickly as possible. Instead of being planed down and squared, live edge tables take larger sections of the raw and natural wood and leave one or more of the edges untreated or with the live edge. Live edge tables aren’t going to be something that is replicated in another space because, like no two fingerprints are the same, no two live edges are going to be the same either. This gives your space some distinction over other spaces that might have similar dimensions or décor.
In addition to being unique, live edge tables also give your space a lot of useful character. People are turning more and more towards unique pieces that tell a story, and live edge tables are a perfect example of this. Live edge tables can be made from old, new or even recycled materials and beams, making them a great piece of character for a dining room table, island for your kitchen, or even a coffee table for the living room.
