Get To Know Your Live Edge Tables

Live edge tables are an extremely popular option right now in wood furniture. We’ve been getting a ton of inquiries about them lately. And no wonder since live edge design is so eye-catching and unique.

The down-side is that authentic live edge wood is pricey and it can be difficult to find in the size and style you want. That’s why we decided to incorporate the hand carved live edge option into our designs. This alternative saves you money, is designed to fit your space, and still looks fantastic.

Authentic live edge tabletops feature the natural edge of the tree from which it was cut, and (depending on the desired width) they are oftentimes one slab of wood. Authentic live edge wood is highly desired and is somewhat rare, so the cost definitely reflects that. Because of the limited inventory, slabs are typically sold quickly, and it can be difficult to find the exact size that will work for your space.

Hand carved live edge tops are built just like our standard tops are – with multiple boards of the same wood type. But the edges are carved to reflect the appearance of authentic live edge. We love that we can offer this feature because it gives us more control over the final product.

Customers can choose the table top size, the wood type and the stain color, as well as the style of live edge they prefer (bold or subtle). Additionally, the hand carved option is quite a bit less expensive than an authentic live edge.

Get Your Own Live Edge


All Rustic + Modern tables, benches, and desks are made to your exact specifications and we’ll work with you to create the type of edge you’re looking for. Hand carved live edge can be combined with our other customization options to create a piece of furniture unique to your home without the price of using authentic live edge wood.

Solid Wood Furniture’s Place in Modern Design

Solid wood furniture is one of the most enduring design trends, and that’s especially true in modern interior design. Wood furniture perfectly embodies modern design ideals of sustainable natural elements, quality craftsmanship, and unique decorating pieces to create an elegantly simple space. Whether you’re going for a classic look, a rustic chic feel, industrial modern, or anything in between, there’s a wood furniture piece that can work in your home.

Natural Beauty

Incorporating natural and organic elements into your interior design provides a type of beauty that just isn’t possible with synthetic materials. There really isn’t a substitute for the weighty, cool presence of natural stone, the feel of real leather, or the natural grain of solid wood. Psychologically, natural elements often lend a calming, peaceful effect to a room.

Solid wood furniture is also an environmentally friendly choice for incorporating natural elements into the design. The type of timber we use for furniture can be harvested and re-planted sustainably. Furniture made from solid wood also lasts for a long time. If it ever does get thrown out many years in the future, it won’t contribute to the landfill problem since wood is biodegradable.

Quality Craftsmanship

Getting away from disposable, trend-of-the-moment design often means investing in high-quality decorating pieces such as solid wood furniture. Handcrafted furniture made by accomplished craftsmen will last for years and is a true work of art.

Here at Rustic + Modern, we’ve spent countless hours honing our woodworking skills so we can build the best quality furniture possible. Every piece we produce is designed to become an heirloom. We don’t take short-cuts and you won’t find mediocre craftsmanship in our designs. If you’d like to inspect the quality in-person, contact us and request an appointment to visit our design center in Prosper, Texas.

Completely Custom

Custom-made furniture pieces can fit perfectly into an interior design and represent something about the decorator’s tastes and style. Tailoring a few pieces like a dining table or office desk to your exact specifications ensures you’re completely happy with the furniture in your space. This is especially important in modern minimalist design, where there aren’t a lot of decorations to distract from the main pieces in the room.

Rustic + Modern offers a variety of customization options. On the more “rustic” side, we have three main styles of farmhouse tables. On the more “modern” side, we pair solid wood table tops with metal elements like table legs and/or re-purposed metal pipe components. You also choose the type of wood, what kind of finish we use, and the size of the finished piece.
