Live edge furniture brings furniture to life
by Bruce Stambaugh
It’s fun just to stand back and watch people’s reactions when they first encounter the one-of-a-kind live edge furniture pieces at Homestead Furniture in Mt. Hope. The reactions range from silent astonishment to all out exclamations of, “I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
Most likely, they haven’t, and that is only one of the reasons live edge furniture, especially dining room tables, have been so popular with Homestead Furniture customers. The craftsmanship is topped only by the furniture’s uniqueness.
Live edge means the furniture is created from a solid slab of beautifully grained hardwoods with the tree’s bark retained as an integral feature. On a walnut dining room table, for example, the slab is planed without removing the bark and to enhance the aesthetic qualities of the wood, like natural cracks and knotholes.
Live edge furniture is the ultimate in custom designed furniture. The combination of the earthy naturalness of the wood and the artistic desires of the customers come to fruition around something as common as a dining room table. Of course, live edge furniture is anything but common.
The inspired sales and design staff at Homestead Furniture listen to what the customers want, provide creative options and create useful and attractive furniture to meet customers’ needs in every way. That’s customization at its finest.
Live edge furniture isn’t confined to dining room tables. Homestead Furniture has produced coffee tables, end tables, office desks and hutches using live edge hardwoods.
Homestead Furniture has a large selection of live edge slabs from which to choose. The friendly staff at Homestead Furniture is happy to work with any request and create the distinctive, personalized furniture the customers want.
Of course, not everyone needs or wants live edge furniture. They do want personalized service and furniture that fits their needs and budget. Homestead Furniture can fill those requirements, too. It’s just another characteristic that makes Homestead Furniture so attractive.
Customers can select from the wide array of styles, designs and collections in a 27,000-square-foot showroom. If the wood or dimensions aren’t exactly what is needed, Homestead Furniture can also custom-design and build what customers want using any hardwood they desire.
Homestead Furniture offers a wide range of beautiful furniture for every room in a home or office, including a wide selection of upholstered and leather furniture. Homestead Furniture is a La-Z-Boy Comfort Studio, and they also partner with Norwalk Furniture in creating personalized fabric and leather sofas and chairs.
