- What is Live Edge and "Art by Nature"? Decor Direct's live edge slab wood tables are unique works of functional art. One of the elements that shows off the nature of our solid wood tables is the natural or 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. Our craftsmen make use of the Nakashima style butterfly joinery as well as other joinery for both stability and decorative elements.
- Custom Construction and Finishes. Our slab tables are available in any color or stain finish a client chooses. In addition to natural finish, which showcases the innate color of the wood, some of the on trend colors are cappuccino brown-grey, "fossil" which is a burnt grey, or our beautiful "Siesta Key Sand" stain which gives the wood a beautiful creamy-grey coloration. All of our slab furniture is finished to best accentuate the slab's wood grain and coloration. Once the appropriate color is achiever, the wood is finished with layers of protection, whether with hand rubbed finishes such as wax or oil, or finished with more robust lacquers and varnishes.
- Legs for your Live Edge Slab Table: We carry a wide assortment of table bases, and legs, including wood chunks and pedestal bases, modern u shape legs in metals use as stainless steel and iron, as well as matching live edge slab wood legs. We also offer different sizes and heights, for everything from coffee table legs, to desks and consoles, dining table legs as well as pub height and bar height legs. Each one is chosen to complement the look and feel of the slab top. We also carry unique vintage and antique bases, such as salvaged industrial crank bases that permit the tables to be adjusted in height.

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 furniture. 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!
