Live Edge

Live Edge Dining Tables & Coffee Tables

One-of-a-kind Furniture Pieces Designed Incorporating Unique Characteristics of Solid Live Edge Slabs

Our upscale, live edge furniture is the perfect synthesis of nature and design. Our philosophy is to make use of the distinctive patterning that is intrinsic to each slab to release the beauty embedded within. It’s a philosophy of doing less to create more, of allowing the natural world into our urban environments, and acknowledging that what we’ve been searching for is already right in front of us.

In practice, this approach means not getting rid of the live edge in our natural edge furniture but embracing it. The exquisite natural edge that is inherent in a wood slab is the inspiration for the creation of our breathtaking designs. The innate curves and juts, the shades of dark and light, the contours and imperfections—these are what is so unique to each piece of wood. Relying on nature to supply the inspiration for our live edge furniture creates a supreme individuality for each piece – simply not something that can be fabricated artificially. The wood helps our designers and crafters to shape the design into being.


Natural Edge Furniture & Upscale Slab Furniture Design

Like anything worth doing, creating our free edge Furniture requires focus, time, and attention. We keep a supply of slabs and boards on hand, each one waiting to be transformed into the next piece. Our slabs are all in different phases of the process—some will be air drying for up to 18 months, while others will be ready to go into the kiln for up to three months for the final drying stage. Once this part of the process is complete, suitable slabs are brought to our workshop in Brooklyn, where they are transformed into beautiful pieces of live edge furniture or art.

The primary source of our slabs of wood for our natural edge furniture is Pennsylvania, which is within 50 miles of our BUCKS COUNTY workshop. BUCKS COUNTY LIVE EDGE DESIGNS, therefore, is often able to supply finished products when a customer is looking for materials satisfying LEED and also US Green Building Certification. This is important to us as we believe in creating luxury artworks that are both locally rooted and sustainably sourced. Our BUCKS COUNTY, Pennsylvania location puts us in an ideal position to obtain the perfect wood for our slab furniture. With easy access to a sustainable supply of walnut, oak, white oak, maple, cherry, and the incomparable American black walnut, we have a steady stream of raw material to bring our pieces of live edge furniture to life.


Live Edge Solid Wood Slabs

BUCKS COUNTY LIVE EDGE DESIGNS' live-edge tables and other designs are made using locally sourced American black walnut, spalted maple, cherry, oak, and other hardwoods

We always keep a supply of slabs and boards. Some will be air drying for up to 18 months or ready to go into the kiln for up to 3 months for the final drying. At this point, a suitable slab is brought to the BUCKS COUNTY workshop where it is transformed into a beautiful piece of furniture or art.

There are many great things about New York, but little known is the fact that it is located within easy reach of many of the excellent furniture grade hardwoods. The forests where these hardwoods are found range from New England and through the Mid West of the United States. We have a plentiful supply of sustainably sourced walnut, oak, white oak, maple, cherry, and other hardwoods. Of these woods arguably the most striking with its grains, colors, and burls is American black walnut. The other wonder of the walnut slab is the cream outer sapwood ring. The outer cream sapwood on the edge of a walnut live edge table becomes an endless conversation feature. The BUCKS COUNTY LIVE EDGE DESIGNS live edge table collection displays all of these qualities in the best possible way.
