What is Live Edge Furniture?
You may have heard the term live edge and wondered what this latest trend in furniture design was all about. It’s simple, really. It’s referring to the wood that has been cut into it’s desired thickness, but without cutting them to be symmetrical, smooth, squared-edge boards. By doing so, the natural elements of the wood are left intact, thereby creating an edge that is reminiscent of the tree it once came from.
Honoring the Wood’s Natural Beauty
To some, creating furniture that uses live edges of the wood—with all of its flaws and imperfections—is honoring the wood’s natural beauty. Live-edge furniture has become so popular that you will find it used in a variety of pieces, from coffee tables, to kitchen islands, to dining tables and benches.
Types of Live Edge Furniture
Each live edge piece, by it’s nature, is one-of-a-kind, no two are exactly the same. This is why Zin Home has created a line of faux live-edge furniture, all made from solid wood, but the edges are fabricated to appear as if it was cut just like that directly from the tree. The star of our Live Edge collection is the Live Edge Solid Wood & Iron Dining Table 72”. With its modern industrial base, this table is a true piece of art. To accompany this table, we have a bench, chairs, and even a sideboard.
