Legendary dining tables, special events and the latest creations from Live Edge Design




If a home has a heart, surely it is the dining table.

A single place all inhabitants gather to plan or re-hash each day over a shared meal.

Where every holiday feast is shared amongst family and friends.

Rituals, and rights-of- passage; birthdays, bar mitzvahs, engagements and graduations.

Here at least, religion, politics and rumor are not taboo over a cup of tea and a scone.

Tastes and smells bring up the memories of a life built around the dining table.

"I never thought I'd say I LOVE a table, but I really, really do! We are on acreage, 1000 feet above sea level in the middle of the forest, so the table is in its natural element, literally!!!"

Sylvia, commenting on her custom curvaceous dining table




The oneTree exhibit at the Robert Bateman Centre is fast approaching so John has been busy designing a dining suite from the oneTree walnut tree.

The heart of the home; the dining table. The heart of the party; the kitchen Island.
