July News from Live Edge Design

The Wild West Coast

On the West Coast we are known for surfing, skiing, climbing, kayaking, paddle boarding and other sports that have one main thing in common. Nature. Outsiders sometimes view this as a lack of work ethic, but we actually work pretty hard at our appreciation of our natural surroundings. It is reflected in our architecture with floor to ceiling Windows and big for beams inviting the outside in. At Live Edge Design, we try to reflect it in our furniture through the use of local salvaged woods, natural elements. While contemporary design is always changing, for us nature and honesty of materials will always be key. This summer, what will you do to celebrate your natural surroundings?

Vancouver Island is surrounded by water and dotted with lakes. I can't help but let the west coast water and waves inspire our designs...come on a journey with me (through this newsletter) and explore the wild side of Live Edge Design.

The next big thing...


This eight and a half foot wide behemoth beauty is now dry and ready to be tailored. 

You can now find the right base for you at liveedge.com/portfolio/table-base-options
You'll also see some of the stories behind our base options and see what inspired the design.

This incredible slice of root burl took two days to slice with a seven foot long bar on a chainsaw. You may remember a video interview that John did with our resident sawyer and chainsaw wielding Rob. You can view it again here.
