Why is live edge so popular?

Imperfections are celebrated in live edge slabs. It shows the natural growth and life of the tree and is accentuated by a skilled craftsman to be a part of your home. All the rough edges, knots, and rings create the charm of a live edge piece. Having such an old and beautiful piece of wood really connects us to nature. It brings a fresh and timeless appearance to any style of home. 


Each slab of wood has a story behind it. Unlike most mass-produced furniture, you can usually learn the entire history of the tree. Where it grew, when it was cut down, who processed it, and the person who designed and created the final product. You get to know this once-living tree and feel connected to it.


One of the most wonderful parts of live edge wood is how unique it will be. Every single tree will be different and unlike any other because of its grain, knots, color, and size. It varies so much even within the same species of tree. Many types of wood can be used for live edge tables. They vary in weight, color, size, price, and how they are built. Because of this, you can pretty much design and choose whether you want a modern or rustic dining table. Live-edge countertops, benches, and chairs are rising in popularity. If you can dream up furniture, a live edge version of it probably exists.

One popular way that live edge has been designed is with resin. With the natural holes and knots of the tree being wide open in some slabs, filling it with clear or colorful resin makes an even more unique and eye-catching piece. It turns into an even more stunning masterpiece with a simple resin pour.


Natural wood is known for being sturdy and durable, lasting decades longer than most modern manufactured pieces. Live edge is no exception.
