I saw this picture on Pinterest and feel in love with the unique concept of using a live edge wood slab for a sliding door.  I mean, it’s pretty damn cool right?


I’ve long loved the natural and yet modern look of furniture made of live edge wood.  I think it’s a look that’s going to stick around for a while.


In fact, I’m considering replacing my glass coffee table with something like this (just much smaller since my entire living room is about the size of this coffee table…)


Look how cool these floating shelves are?  They would also be amazing in a commercial application like in a boutique for display.


Speaking of commercial applications, this bar is incredible. For many reasons really, but the counter is such an amazing focal point.


Using a floating slab as a powder room counter with a vessel sink is another cool use.


My favorite application is still a dining table though! :)


Hudson Furniture makes the most stunning live edge tables, I’m sure many of you have drooled over their ads in shelter magazines.  And their showroom in Manhattan is unbelievable- like, INSANE. But so are the prices!  I had a client that loved this table but not the price…


So we instead ventured out to Jeffrey Greene Design Studio in rural Pennsylvania (maybe getting very lost thanks to GPS on our way…) and worked with them to create a similar table for much less.  We got to pick our slab and make sure the metal finish and leg shape were just right. And I have to say I think it came out fabulous!

I love the handcrafted nature of this table in the formal, traditional space.
