The Beauty of Live Edge Tops

Interior design is all about flow and movement. Every element of the room should fit in and contribute to its overall aesthetics, in some way. That’s what most designers aim for when they work on a home or office. Every day, designers come up with new ways to add beauty and flow to a room. They want to create unique elements that would make their clients’ property stand out and look great. At Mexports Inc by SM , we work to keep up with these emerging trends and provide the latest products to our clients. One such emerging trend is stone live edge tops for furniture. This is our trend alert for 2016!


What is Live Edge?

The concept of live edge has been around for a while now and the trend is catching on. The edges on traditional wood or stone tops are polished to a smooth finish. This product has an edge that appears unfinished and natural. It’s rough, uneven and showcases the natural texture of the material.

The uneven finish is present only on the edges and not on the surface. You can choose to polish the stone or wood to a high-gloss shine. Some people prefer a natural look and hone the surface to a matte finish and that’s rustic and beautiful. Regardless of what finish you choose, this design will enhance the beauty of any room.
