What does live edge mean?

Live edge furniture has become a popular trend in home decor, with its unique and natural look capturing the attention of homeowners and designers alike. In this article, we’ll explore what live edge means and how it has become a sought-after design style for custom dining tables.

When it comes to furniture design, the term “live edge” refers to the natural edge of the wood that has not been cut or shaped, creating an organic and irregular look. Live edge pieces showcase the natural beauty of the wood, from its unique grain patterns to its natural imperfections. Live edge furniture has a rich history that dates back to the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th century, which emphasized the use of natural materials and traditional craftsmanship. Today, live edge furniture continues to be celebrated for its connection to nature and its ability to create unique and timeless pieces.


One of the most popular applications of live edge furniture is custom dining tables. A live edge dining table can be a beautiful centerpiece in any home, adding warmth, character, and a natural element to the space. Each custom piece is unique and can be designed to fit the specific needs and style of the homeowner. Custom live edge tables showcase the natural beauty of the wood and add a touch of uniqueness to any living space. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation, with no two pieces of wood having the same shape, size, or grain pattern. Live edge tables are versatile and can fit into any design style, from rustic to modern. They also offer durability and longevity, making them a valuable investment for any homeowner.


Proper preparation of live edge wood is crucial to ensure its stability and durability. At MORUXO, we specialize in live edge tables made from Guanacaste wood, which requires proper drying and milling to ensure stability and minimize the possibility of warping. The right selection of wood species is also essential to achieve the desired look and feel of the table. The role of a skilled wood crafter in preparing live edge wood for furniture cannot be overstated, as it can make or break the quality of the finished product. Working with live edge wood requires a combination of technical expertise and artistic vision to bring out the best in natural materials.


 At MORUXO, we use the Rubio Monocoat application for our live edge dining tables. This finish enhances the natural beauty of the Guanacaste wood and adds a protective layer to the wood, ensuring it remains durable and lasts for years to come. The matte finish gives the table a natural look that blends seamlessly with the wood’s natural grain patterns. The Rubio Monocoat application is a premium finish that provides a superior level of protection for live edge tables. With proper care, your live edge table will maintain its beauty and durability for years to come.
