Live Edge Alive at High Point
Live Edge – this hot trend continues to build! The High Point NC Fall International Home Furnishings Market – largest in the world – was alive with new ways to use this amazing work of nature.
You can’t just think of a Live Edge slab of wood being designed only for a rustic environment. Transforming a slab with beautiful bleaching and white washing gives it a modern vibe and makes it perfect for warming up a modern setting.
If you love Industrial Chic, you will love pairing a dramatic slab with an industrial base. I love these antique wheels setting off the bronze iron legs. Go shopping at one of the very popular salvage yards and find your own vintage treasure to add to your piece.
When you think out-of-the box, there are no limits to what a designer can create with one of these Live Edge slabs. By suspending the wood in the middle of this modern metal crafted frame, a truly “wow” piece is created for an entryway stunner.
Barn doors are showing up all over. I recently installed a barn door style shower door – a great look for a sliding glass door. The addition of hand forged bronze hardware on this Live Edge slab barn door, gives it even more character and adds an artisan quality.
Nothing rustic about these pieces. Quiet elegance describes this look crossing the boundaries into a modern vibe with a understated beautiful Live Edge detail. Don’t you love the understated silver brackets in the table top?
Live Edge imbedded in black resin is the perfect juxtaposition of wood and polish. This dramatic table top will take center stage in any room! Besides being perfect for a modern dining room, I would also select this look for a high powered conference room or trendy restaurant.
Looking for something different to hang on that two-story wall? Or, maybe a unique large scale room divider? Nothing shy about these accent pieces! Live Edge is always guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind perfectly designed piece from Mother Nature. Select yours today!
