Live Edge products have existed since people were making wooden furniture; it is a very straightforward way to build furniture, especially Tables. It was not as simple as grabbing your cordless circular saw and cutting off the live edge back in what we call “the old days.” You would have had to get your handsaw and spend time cutting off the outer live edge portion of the wood. So instead, they just left the live edge on, not as a style choice but for convenience's sake. Live edge has not just recently become popular.
Back in 1946, George Nakashima was bringing it to life. George was an award-winning architect and designer. In his collections, he included Live Edge designs. Soon after, they began appearing in modern homes and have increased in popularity ever since. The past decade has seen a significant increase, with big-name interior designers and architects offering clients stunning live-edge furniture options. You can find live edge furniture in Restaurants, offices, conference rooms, kitchens, and most places where you can put a table.
This history of river tables is not very long but is a new design style that has become more popular in the last decade.
