A recent trend in furniture has been natural or live edge wood for tables. They bring in the beauty of the outdoors into the home. Each piece is unique because of the natural differences in individual trees. Imperfections are what make the tables beautiful. You can make these tables on your own fairly easily. You have to find a good piece of wood to start with. Usually cross sections of trunks are used. One downside of the variance in shapes is that they might not always be very practical. However, these will look great in your living room.
- You can use an old piece of wood or tree to make a trendy table for your home.
- Live edge tables are not always practical due to irregular shapes.
- How your table looks depends on the type of tree it was sourced from.
“Live edge or natural edge wood has become increasingly popular in the furniture industry lately. Some designers consider such furniture to be rustic but there’s more to it than that.”
