About Live Edge

What is live edge? Unique. Bold. Beautiful.

LIVE EDGE furniture is hand-crafted to showcase nature's beauty, with each piece featuring the natural edge of the tree in its design. Think of LIVE EDGE as nature's art gallery. Gather people around your LIVE EDGE top and show them the heart wood, outer sap wood, a growth ring, or the cambium, which reveals the tree's health history.

Our LIVE EDGE wooden tables are crafted to the same exacting standards we apply to the rest of our furniture. We remove most of the bark to stabilize the wood and sand the edges smooth. Just because LIVE EDGE is rough around the edges, doesn't mean it's not refined.

All of the Northern Hardwood trees we utilize for our LIVE EDGE furniture are responsibly harvested, ensuring you the most beautiful, durable, and sturdy LIVE EDGE tables available.

Available in Cherry and Walnut, some of our table tops are book matched, some are solid, while others have natural edges joined to a center slab cut from the same tree. No two LIVE EDGE tables are alike in appearance, and we number each top so you know you're getting exactly what you see.

Let's not forget the base.

These tops are a bit too heavy to hold with one hand and carve that Beef Wellington with the other. Simply Amish offers a wide range of trestle and double pedestal bases for our custom LIVE EDGE tops. After you select the perfect top, you will be able to customize your table by choosing the base, height, and finish that are just right for your home or office.

Beautifully finished and protected.

Cherry and Walnut finish options are the same as for our regular furniture, with the addition of a Natural Walnut to preserve the beauty of the sap wood edge. If your LIVE EDGE table will be used for dining, our three coats of catalyzed varnish will protect your table top from spills beautifully.

The stain samples, located in our design centers at your Simply Amish dealer, will render the most accurate depiction of color. Stain samples may also be viewed on our woods and stains page. Please remember your computer monitor may not accurately render stain color.
