Live edge wood has become very popular in decorating lately and it’s not hard to see why. I personally love the wild look of it and the versatility of how it can be used to bring character ato a space. Live edge simply refers to a wood structure (table, shelves, etc) that does not have straight, clean-cut sides. Instead, the wood is shaped unevenly and often has a lot of imperfections.
This look is full of charm and – while it is very rustic by nature – suits a variety of decorating styles. From a full on country chic home to a modern, minimalist design, live edge wood can add depth to the space in a small or large way. It is so beautiful that it is hard to go wrong with it.
Here are 10 rooms with live edge wood elements that are sure to inspire you and show you some of the many ways this beautiful look can be implemented.
