Live Edge Mantel

A live edge mantel is the perfect companion for a natural stone or brick fireplace. It can even team up with a plaster fireplace, Native American style. Cut lengthwise from a tree, and retaining the cambium and bark, a live edge brings home just how much of a natural creation exists in real wood. Added as a floating shelf or supported by the structure of the fireplace, they are beautiful.

These mantels are the perfect place to display sporting or hunting trophies, or even a row of family portraits. They can bring back memories of tramping through forests, or even intimations of times when ancestors might have worn buckskins and moccasins. They might even be reminders of ceramic stove-beds, and giant looms with half-finished wool rugs being made upon them. In every case, the beauty of the natural wood will add a warm glow to your room, reflecting firelight or lamplight to make your time at home more enjoyable. Team your live edge mantel with leather upholstery, natural wool blankets and throw pillows, and real metal tea kettles or spider style cooking pots for an air of authenticity.
