beautiful tables

I saw pieces by Live Edge Design, a company out of Duncan on the Island, at the Interior Design Show last year. The headboard with nightstands was on display, and looked great! Each piece is unique and special. They have respect for the material, and salvage trees brought down by storms and left behind by logging companies.

Long Beach Lodge, the Wick, Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge and Tigh-Na-Mara Resort all use their pieces.

Some of their pieces give you the choice of character maple or uniform maple. Both are amazing, and offer options for the Designer.

There is something warm and primal about these tables, which I would own in a moment. I have to say, the combination of the chairs and table together are a bit much for me (in most situations), so marrying them with say a mid century modern chair in a plastic...maybe the Panton in white...that's exciting.

With design, it's about giving the intended amount of tension, juxtaposition, contrast and mixing form, colour and all the other design principles in harmony. The intended amount of each of these, and following through with their balance as you make decisions in the "real world" is what gives the Interior Designer real value in a project. That's why I went to school for 4 very long years!

Live Edge Design is amazing to deal with...see their stuff here!

Below is the common area of Long Beach Lodge, and the Wick on the Beach sitting area.

These tables are beautiful and a showcase for the natural resources we have in our country. This is "Green Design" at its best!
