• ​​​​​What is Live Edge and "Art by Nature"? Decor Direct's live edge slab wood tables are unique works of functional art. Some of our slabs highlight natural inclusions in the tree slice. We like to call this "Art by Nature". One of the elements of Art by Nature is the live edge. The difference between live edge and straight edge is that a live edge slab shows off the natural outer part of the slice of tree. After the bark is removed, we preserve the organic look to the slab by leaving the natural edge of the tree intact. Straight edge is when we cut the live edge off to have a perfect line.
  • Custom Construction and Finishes. Our slab tables are available in many different finishes, like our cappuccino brown-grey, "fossil" which is a burnt grey, or our beautiful new "Siesta Key Sand" stain which gives the wood a beautiful creamy-grey coloration. Or choose to go completely organic with the natural wood coloration. All of our slab furniture is finished to best accentuate the slab's wood grain and coloration. We also carry slab tables with all styles of legs, including stainless steel, iron metal, wood slab, contrasting colors, as well as different sizes and heights. Each one is chosen to complement the look and feel of the slab top. Our craftsmen make use of the Nakashima style butterfly joinery for both stability and decorative elements.
  • Natural Slab and Chunk Furniture. We have an incredible selection of hard to find large scale logs and live edge slab chunks. Perfect for TV consoles, entryway tables, dining and bar tables, or sculptural art! Be inspired by a diversity of sizes and colors in our natural chunky wood. Some show dramatic color variations in the wood grain texture and intricate form for a stunning focal point. Choose from small end table sizes to chunks over 10 feet long!
  • Live Edge Slab Wood Functional Art. To create our slab art, we mount slabs and chunks of wood on pedestals for display. We have a range from small to large sizes--available already mounted or buy one that isn't mounted to create your own artistic vision! Each piece is unique, rare, and elegant.
