Blog/Raw State: Live Edge Timber Design Trend

The Brocklesby ash furniture collection by the Galvin Brothers, from £275, The White Company 


Roughly hewn timber, bark, and petrified wood are well suited to industrial spaces. These are the best designs in our neck of the woods - go ahead, it’s only natural. 

(Above) The Brocklesby ash furniture collection was handcrafted by the Galvin Brothers exclusively for The White Company. Each piece in the series is a collectible. (Below, from left) This large clock was handcrafted from a single slice of live-edge spalted hornbeam and features a mahogany bow key detail; The foot detail in Samuel Wilkinson's Hoof table for &Tradition is created by reversing the usual manufacturing processes. The design is painted first and then trimmed back to reveal the natural grain.

Five of the best raw edge homeware and interior designs.
