Live Edge Wood: Not what come to mind when you hear the word ‘SLAB’ but it should

I think we can all agree that the following uses for a live edge wood slab are Mother Nature approved.

Along with barn door sliding hardware this wood slab is not only functional as a privacy door, but also truly a piece of art. When I see an installation like this, it inspires me to keep materials that I select in their truest form to allow their natural beauty to shine through.

The kitchen below combines modern materials with a live edge wood slab countertop. The two combine and create a truly stand-out kitchen.

Proving again that love is in the details, this use of live edge wood as a baseboard is stating that luxury is also in the details.

Clients who are looking for a fresh way to update a bedroom may want to consider this headboard application. Again, it allows the slab to keep its’ natural integrity, while enhanced with a gel stain to pull warmth and richness.

These installations make me believe that creativity is intelligence having fun.
