It’s the start of another new year, and maybe this is the year in which you finally decide to upgrade the interior design of your home. Maybe you’ve been living with hand-me-down furniture or trying to make pieces work that weren’t really made for the size or style of your rooms. Whatever the case may be, now is a great time to up your style game with some new furniture pieces.
Most people can’t afford to replace all their furniture at once, so where should you start if you want to upgrade a little at a time? We think a great first piece to upgrade is your dining room table.
A dining room table is often a substantial piece of furniture that sits in a prominent place in your home—typically near the main “hubs” of the home (the kitchen and the living room). This makes it a great piece with which to make a statement.
Not many things make a bigger statement in a home than a live edge dining table. Live edge tables just have an inherent interest about them. The natural curves and the asymmetry make people want to stop and take a second look. Live edge dining tables allow the wood itself to be the “star” of the piece. At Three Pines, when we craft live edge dining tables for our customers, we work with you to select stains and finishes that really highlight the wood grain. Some slabs don’t need any stain at all because the color of the wood is naturally beautiful. In those cases, we’ll just put a clear protective finish on the wood.
Lest you think that live edge dining tables are only appropriate for more modern homes, we’re here to tell you that they can be just as stunning in traditional or rustic homes. It all has to do with wood selection, how the slab is finished, and the types of legs used to support the slab. We can help you select the perfect slab of wood based on your San Diego home’s style (or the style you want to start moving toward), and then we can give you ideas on how to finish it. Our company has access to a network of private sawmills with unique slabs from all over the country, so whether you want Walnut from the Midwest, Mesquite or Acacia from Arizona, or something else entirely, we can help you find it.
Probably the best thing about a custom live edge table is that no one else will have a table just like yours. It will be completely unique to your home and your family. Let the custom furniture makers at Three Pines design and build a custom live edge dining table that will make a statement in your San Diego home. Contact us to get started.
