Many of our customers decide to go with a custom woodworking company for their furniture because they are looking for a “statement piece” for their homes. They want something unique that can’t be found in stores or even online. They may have a specific vision in their head that they haven’t been able to find exactly what they’re looking for, and need a woodworker to execute that vision. Whatever the case may be, here at Smith Farms we are here to deliver that statement piece that will complete any room in your home.
One popular option for a statement piece is a bench made from a live-edge slab of wood. A live-edge bench uses a wood slab that still has a natural edge on it.
Using a live-edge slab is a great way to get a piece of furniture with a unique look to it, because no two slabs will look the same, and therefore, there will be no other bench just like yours. It will have curves and bumps that give it a natural beauty that you just can’t get from furniture made from milled lumber.
A live-edge bench is also a great way to bring a natural element into your home. Some people choose to incorporate plants into their décor for a natural element, but for those who don’t want to have to care for something living, a live-edge bench is a great choice!
A live-edge bench can be placed just about anywhere in a home. A popular place is in an entryway, but some people choose to put them at the end of their beds, in a living room for extra seating, around a dining table, or even in a bathroom.
If you’ve never seen a live-edge bench up close and personal, you may be wondering if the live edge will be rough, making the bench not comfortable to sit on. When Smith Farms uses live-edge slabs for benches (and other types of furniture), we smooth out the rough spots in such a way that they slab still retains its natural beauty, but also won’t scratch your skin or ruin your clothing. After all, a piece of furniture isn’t much good if it never gets used.
At Smith Farms, we have a select few live-edge slabs in our shop, ready to be turned into a beautiful bench for your home in Temecula, Murrieta, or Menifee. We also have access to several private sawmills with many amazing live-edge slabs in stock. We are happy to help you find exactly what you’re looking for!
