On edge...


I'm not one for rustic log cabin like furniture (unless it's the "rare" perfect setting for such), but there is something to be said for a live-edge wood piece juxtaposed against it's opposite in materials, such as the bright white linens above or bold geometric wallpaper like below.


Probably my favorite of the images (live edge combined with David Hicks "Hexagon" wallpaper is a recipe for success), the home of Edward Durell Stone featured in House and Garden magazine, Feb. '06.


The country home of Roland Augustine and family featured in Elle Decor, March '06. This walnut and steel console is by Chris Lehrecke.


A rather large walnut table, made by Mike Fair, featured in O at Home Magazine, Spring '07


A nice touch to against all the stainless steel, this rough edged ash wood shelf is featured in a home designed by Hanrahan Meyers Architects and showcased in Met. Home magazine, June '06.


So fun for a kid's room, almost like sleeping in a tree house, designed by Julia Roth and featured in Elle Decor, Nov. '07

Your favorite image is also one of my favorite examples of this juxtaposition! The wallpaper/table combo is divine.

Oh, these are great! Love the rustic texture mixed with modern and refined things. My favourite is the shelf against the stainless steel.
