Let it be. Touch it just enough. Know when to say when. Embrace the au naturale. Repurpose found materials. Love of a soft line. Whatever it is that moves great designers to fashion-functional home decor from live edged wood…I feel all those feels and love them more for it! Sometimes perfectly imperfect is perfection in itself. Don’t we know it? Check out these fun live edge wood finds and tell me you don’t fall in love with them too?
1/ Reclaimed Wood Floating Shelf- 3 Ft, Reclaimed Pine: Open shelving is a thing, in case that needs to be stated. There is something magical about shelves that float. They help open a kitchen or bath visually. And they are a gorgeous way to add display to any wall without overbearing a space. Especially when floor space is at a minimum.
2/ Live Edge Bar Shelf: Jeni, a beautiful woman who creates beautiful graphics with us and has an amazingly sharp eye for design, swooned over this. I think she used the word need rather than love this piece. Either way, she’s right. It’s a beautiful feature in a kitchen, or over a bar area or cart. I’d even put one in a guest bathroom, and tuck two short stemmed glasses in there for night water, plus a few candles, hand towels and soap on the shelf.
3/ Live Edge Bath Caddy: I’ve had my eye on this piece for some time. I had to wait until I could actually get into my unfinished master bathroom so that I could measure my soaking tub to be sure this would fit…and it does! Nothing is better than a place to rest your tea, coffee, or glass of wine, and some wonderful salts over a bath, especially not when it’s this pretty.
4/ Large Reclaimed Solid Cypress Coffee Table: These Cypress stumps are amazing especially when clustered. And they let you move away from a geometric coffee table and create a more organic feel.
5/ Aurelle Home Natural Solid Teak Stump Wood Accent Table: Square stump genius. Great as a side table or night stand too! Or mix a few of them with bumpers or poofs for extra seating.
6/ Live Edge Cutting Board – Live Edge Butcher Block – Handmade in Black Walnut: My love of a cutting/serving board grew deeper when I set eyes on this beauty. I love them to cut and serve. I also love them set on a table or counter, with a candle and some flowers or greens, just to add height and texture to what might otherwise be an empty space.
7/ Koch Coffee Table: Reclaimed wood top and steel legs is also a thing. The proportion of this is great because it’s not too heavy, just substantial enough.
8/ Mazelina Coffee Table: Glam meets rustic design with this unique Coffee Table. Each wooden top is different from the next, and has its own unique brass knot filling. The brass knot filling in the star of this table….Mixed materials are so amazing when done well.
9/ Landscape White Washed Wood Dining Table: Wide acacia wood (Google that, it’s a good green thing) planks top off this natural beauty. Finished with a live edge and subtle whitewash, dining table shows off gorgeous natural tones, knots and markings. And those legs!!! I’m in love with those legs!
10/ Live edge table – Single slab – Lucite legs: A gift from nature, especially the veining + lucite legs and brass — just perfection! This one isn’t inexpensive. It’s an entire slab rather than planks. One tree fell, it was a big one, and this piece was cut from it. That’s what makes a single slab table more expensive, but also worth it. It’s just special.
