January News from Live Edge Design, Special 10 year anniversary edition.
This month sees our 10 year anniversary as Live Edge Design. Though, for me, the whole process started over 20 years ago with small alder logs and twigs. I feel that this is a milestone for the big, art wood tables made from salvaged forest giants. We've seen many changes over the 10 years and implemented (and invented) many ways of working with big slabs of wood. You can read more about our trials and tribulations over the years in the link below.
For me, it is always, at the heart, about creating exceptional art furniture, that meets our customers needs and exceeds their service expectations. True values that I hope will see us through our next 10 years...
"I care more for integrity than profit and for sustainability over growth."
-John Lore, Owner and President
Tigh-Na-Mara Resort and Spa in Parksville were one of our first clients as Live Edge Design. Read our interview with their Director of rooms in the linked image below.
"I had an immediate connection with Live Edge, and especially with John. He is a genuine, flexible and open partner. Tigh na mara looks for local – local companies that are sustainable and that fit the Tigh Na Mara culture. We have found Live Edge to be a really great company, with great people - from the owner, to the sales team to their delivery personnel "
The grain of time...
Every circle of grain in a tree marks the passing of a full year of growth. Within each of these lines is a story, a story of struggle against the elements and of struggle against itself (holding up its heavy, leaf laden branches a feat in itself).
