Live edge or natural edge is a certain style of furniture and it can be best defined as a style where the carpenter incorporates the natural edge of the wood into the design of that certain piece.

There are different methods for working with this type of wood but in all cases the main goal is the same: to preserve the natural beauty of the wood and to showcase it making it the star of the design.

This modern kitchen, for example, features a very nice wooden countertop with natural edge. As you can see, it’s slightly darker than the wooden floor but it still creates a very nice balance.
