Yesterday I was cruising Pinterest and kept coming upon sooooo many awesome ‘Live Edge’ ideas. Apparently we weren’t too far off with the trends when we decided to use one on our breakfast bar.
If you’re not familiar with what ‘Live Edge’ means, it’s a slab of rough-cut wood that has one or more edges that are ‘live’ and organically shaped exactly the way they were cut from the trunk or branch of a tree! They’re so natural and gorgeous!
And I’ve since discover that YOU CAN BUY LIVE EDGE SLABS ON AMAZON (whahhhh?)
Today, I’m going to share a handful of my faves from the interwebs to get your creative juices flowing. Some of these items are actually for sale on Etsy shops, some are tutorials, and some are just room reveals / eye candy. Please pin from the original source of each pic. Let’s do this!

One major misconception about Live Edge elements is that it’s only for a rustic ‘log-cabin-y’ design taste. Not true!
I love the way these natural elements bring a certain warmth and personality to a room… not to mention an unexpected conversation piece! And I feel strongly that they can be incorporated with ANY design style. Don’t you agree?
I’m so glad that I found out that I can buy these live edge slabs on Amazon, because the lumber yard where we got ours went out of business (BOO!). It’s good to know there are other sources!
Do you have any of these types of elements in your home? Or WOULD YOU consider it now that you’ve seen all these gorgeous examples?! Now that I think about it, my wood slice table lamps would even fall into this category!!
