Live Edge Table and 2 Live edge benchesIn this blog post, we delve into the enchanting world of our Live Edge Dining Tables, exploring their unique features, design versatility, and the unparalleled beauty they bring to your home. Discover the allure of live edge furniture and why our collection stands out in the UK market.

Unveiling Nature’s Beauty:

At Field & Hawken, our Live Edge Dining Tables are more than just pieces of furniture; they’re a celebration of nature’s beauty. Crafted from sustainably sourced wood, each table showcases the raw, untrimmed edges that retain the organic contours of the tree, making every piece a testament to the wonders of the natural world. Crafted from Suar Wood slabs, the wood comes from the Monkeypod tree, a sustainable source and sometimes known as the Rain Tree.

Embracing Uniqueness:

What sets our Live Edge Dining Tables apart is their individuality. No two tables are alike, as each bears the distinctive marks of its own journey, including knots, grains, and unique markings. This uniqueness ensures that your dining space is adorned with a piece as special as the moments you share around it.


Why Choose Field & Hawken’s Live Edge Dining Tables?


Craftsmanship and Quality:

Our commitment to craftsmanship is evident in every Live Edge Dining Table we sell. Meticulously designed and expertly crafted, these tables showcase the seamless fusion of rustic charm and modern sophistication, adding an air of elegance to your home.

Our Live Edge Slabs are 8cm thick (which sets them apart from a lot of tables on the market). They are kiln dried and then they acclimatise here in the UK for at least 3 months before we prepare and send them. When you choose your table a joiner will get to work preparing and sanding your slab to get it in optimal condition ready for you to select the treatment of choice.  We do recommend Danish oil for the perfect soft sheen and protected finish.


Sustainable Elegance:

We take pride in offering environmentally conscious choices. Our Live Edge Dining Tables are crafted from responsibly sourced Suar wood also sometimes called the Monkeypod or Rain Tree, as when the tree is heavily flowering, the stamens from the flowers sometimes drop to the ground like rain.  These trees are fast growing and were introduced to Indonesia (from South America) in the mid 19th century as a plantation tree where it flourished and due to it’s close grain, fast growing ability has become a very popular choice for sustainable furniture making.


Versatility for Every Home:

Whether you have a traditional or contemporary aesthetic, our Live Edge Dining Tables effortlessly complement diverse design preferences. The versatility of these tables allows you to create a dining space that reflects your unique style and personality.
