Live edge furniture adds a rustic edge to what’s otherwise considered ‘formal’ furniture and this contrast makes the live edge stand out.

As the popularity of live edge furniture increases among Amish furniture aficionados, Weaver Furniture Sales of Shipshewana, Indiana, announces the addition of a number of live edge furniture pieces to its furniture offerings including the newly added Legacy Live Edge TV Stand. These pieces of live edge furniture are available online or by visiting Weaver’s ‘brick and mortar,’ 20,000 square foot megastore in Shipshewana, Indiana.

"Live edge furniture adds a rustic edge to what’s otherwise considered ‘formal’ furniture and this contrast makes the live edge stand out," states Weaver Furniture Sales owner LeRoy D. Weaver.

In actuality, live edge furniture retains the natural appearance of the outer edge of the wood, just below the bark. Normally, this edge is cut off, giving the wood its straight edge. However, the live edge displays all the imperfections of the wood – such as bumps, ridges, cracks and knots.

Traditionally, furniture designers and builders display the live edge along one or more of the top edges of the piece. As a result, the live edge is normally found on a table, console or cabinet. However live edges are also used on beds, tv stands and other furnishings.

The ‘flaws’ made apparent by the live edge actually enhance the authentic look of the piece. This is because it drives home the reality that one is looking at ‘real wood.’ Also, due to its imperfections, the live edge helps furniture look less formal. In addition, the live edge portrays each item of furniture as unique. Because the live edge has distinctive characteristics throughout!

Weaver Furniture Sales offers custom built furniture with a live edge for every room in the home. More specifically, Weaver’s live edge offerings include occasional furniture, TV consoles and dining tables, hutches and buffets plus bedroom sets. As with other hardwood furniture from Weaver Furniture Sales, live edge furniture from Weaver is built from quality regional hardwoods.
