Decorating With Live Edge Slabs

People often aspire to make their home decor modern, but if you’re not careful, modern can become cold, stale, and uninteresting. The cure for a mod overdose? Something natural. Like a touch of authentic, organic, real wood. Here are eight rooms to show you how it’s done.

Headboards Made From Live Edge Slabs

These thinner live edge slabs of wood make for a perfect headboard in this bedroom from Domino. Live edge slabs can help to anchor a bed in a bedroom and add a stunning focal point. The natural wood element plays well with neutral and light bedding, and can add a rustic and warm vibe to a more contemporary room. 

The boards can be hung vertically, as seen here, or horizontally, as seen in our previous blogs, and an be anchored directly to the wall. Check out our wide selection of live edge slabs here, to find one that would work well for your bedroom.  

Colors and sizes vary so you're sure to find a slab that will work in your space!

Live Edge Slab and Cross Cut Coffee Tables

A live-edge wood coffee table with modern legs in this space on My Domaine by Amber Interiors, adds another textural element to a space. Live edge slabs and crosscuts make beautiful and durable coffee and end tables for living rooms, family rooms, office spaces, or foyers. 

Wood tables look stunning with neutral colored sofas and work well with any accent colors. There are endless varieties of wood tone that can help to bring out accent colors around the room, and anchor the space. 

At C3 Forest Products, we import live edge slabs and crosscuts from a sustainable forestry program in Costa Rica. Adding a table with one of these tops immediately adds culture and an exotic feel to a space. If you're not sure where to start and want to pick out a pre-made table, we have those too! Check them out here.

This raw wood bar top is the perfect addition to Corianne Burton‘s kitchen, as seen on her Instagram.

Custom wood countertops  add a unique and stunning design element to any kitchen. Whether you decide to use wood countertops throughout, or simply for an island or bar, the exotic live edge slab hardwood will be a conversation starter for years to come. 

Nothing matches the warmth and beauty of natural wood countertops. While butcher block wood countertops are common, wide wood planks and natural live edge slabs add an extra touch of uniqueness and have grown greatly in popularity. The rich color tones, knots, and complex wood grain patterns make for an incredible design element in a kitchen. Each live edge slab at C3 Forest Products is hand-selected and finished to perfection, producing quality natural wood countertops that will last for decades.

Live Edge Shelving

Live-edge wood adds tons of interest and texture to a simple wall of floating shelves, like in this renovation featured on The Kitchn

Live edge slabs are durable shelving options that are a great conversation starter in any kitchen. Because of the wide width and length options available, the possibilities are endless for shelving! The live edge slabs listed in our shop can also be cut in half to make shelving. 

The live edge of the wood makes a gorgeous statement and is perfect for open shelving. This look isn't just for the kitchen. Try adding live edge slabs to a bedroom, living room for book display, or a foyer to display family photos. You could even use live edge slab shelving in a closet to create a stunning shoe or accessory display. The list goes on!

Live Edge Slab Doors

With a bit of hardware, a large raw wood slab can become a sliding barn door, like seen here on Traditional Home.

Barn doors are all the rage. Why not add that feel of a rustic focal point, while incorporating an even more unique piece of wood, with live edge slab sliding doors. Sliding doors save space, create privacy, and add functional art to a space. Sliding doors are perfect for closets, slightly separating two rooms, like a kitchen and dining room, or an on-suite bathroom from the master bedroom. 

Simply install a track, add the hardware, and hang your choice of live edge slab to create this look in your home.

Live Edge Slab TV Stands

Take a piece of lumber and add four caster wheels and you’ll get this piece from Planete Deco via Beckers, which could be used as a shelf or even a low-profile TV stand.

 Live edge slabs create the perfect surface for displaying items such as books, decor, or even a TV. By adding caster wheels you can move this piece around the room, or even from room to room. One of the live edge slabs found on our site could even be cut into multiple TV stands or shelving units.

Live Edge Slab Bathroom Countertops

We love the look of this space. In this bathroom from Jodie Rosen Design, a live-edge piece of wood was installed as a floating bathroom countertop. 

We've mentioned live edge slab countertops and bar tops for the kitchen, but they also make stunning bathroom countertops and add a beautiful rustic element to any bathroom. The wood looks especially stunning with white, neutral, or dark tiles, as it really pops and adds a lovely focal point amongst all of the tile and mirror elements typically found in a bathroom. 

 Extra treating and sealing may be needed to keep the wood water-resistant, so be sure to reach out to us with any questions if you're looking for a live edge slab on our site to use as a bathroom countertop.
