With the plethora of man-made materials used in furniture making today, it can be easy to forget that for the majority of human existence, wood has been the go-to material for building structures and everything placed inside. As we continue to see a movement back to natural materials and concern over indoor air quality, it stands to reason that live edge tables and other wood slab options would be gaining in popularity.
If you haven’t yet seen live edge tables or know what they are about, these tables are generally hand-crafted by artisans who leave as much of the natural state of the wood intact as possible. It is the flaws, knots, and ragged edges that make each piece unique. The majority of live edge tables have had the bark of the tree removed, but that isn’t always the case. The possibilities are virtually endless for live edge tables, so you can get one for your dining room or smaller versions for coffee tables, nightstands, and décor pieces.
The organic style element of live edge tables seems to take us back to carefree summer days as a child, perhaps reminding us of days spent climbing trees or sitting on a strong tree branch with friends. Whether your interest in live edge tables for your Raleigh, North Carolina home is a fun reminder of childhood or an interest in an environmentally friendly focal point for your home, talk to us here at WKS Wood Design to have a unique one custom made just for you.
