Hosting a Party in Your New Home?

As Super Bowl 52 approaches, the thought of friends and family gathering in kitchens and living rooms across America is front of mind.  Few occasions are as exciting as the final Sunday of the football season.  Whether you are a fan of the game or not, the tradition is a special one each year.  And if you're hosting this year, why hover around a table that you was delivered in a box and took 4 hours to put together when you could have a custom table handcrafted exactly how you want it? 

The question we ask ourselves all the time is this:  Of all the furniture in your home, which piece, if replaced or enhanced, would bring the most life to your home?  Sure the couch or your bed would be nice to upgrade.  And yes, new art to hang on the wall is great on the eyes (we have options there too if you're interested).  But for our money, nothing stands out more than a custom-made, multi-generational LIVE EDGE table!  

This one is for sale at our showroom now.  At over ten feet, it would host up to 14 people for dinner and would serve as a perfect centerpiece for snacks and drinks this Sunday. 


Check out our website or our Instagram page and let us know if something catches your eye.  Frankly, search online for "Live Edge" and if you find an image that sparks your interest.  We have tons of kiln-dried slabs of every species of wood available.  And we're happy to consult on any ideas you have for your home.  Thank you!

New to Live Edge! Our Farmhouse Collection and Custom Barn Doors

Every few months, we are fortunate to meet new artists that blow us away.  This summer, we made friends with a group from Chicago that will be showing now their amazing work at our gallery.  They are experts in selecting great slabs for unique projects and are our go-to supplier for barn doors, which clients are using for bathrooms and bedroom redesigns.  

And below, see a sample from Mary Carol's incredible new collection from a series she completed while in Iowa visiting family and friends.  The gallery is filled up with great new photography and as always, an energy that we've been told is contagious!  Come experience it with us.   


Custom barn doors for around $1,500!

Photography by Mary Carol Fitzgerald for as little as $495!

Announcing our Summer Event - August 4th!
When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
— Jean de la Bruyere

Hello friends!  We want everyone to know that Live Edge Chicago is hosting our Summer Event on Friday, August 4th, from 6 to 10pm at our gallery in Lakeview (3633 North Ashland Ave) and would love to have you join us!  We'll have wine and hors d'oeuvres and we promise, an amazing group of people with whom to share a Chicago evening.  The Cubs have a day game too so feel free to stop in after!  

This fine Fourth of July, we also celebrate America and amazing design.   Whether the medium is wood, metal, canvas or film, all artists are craftsmen in their unique way of combining vision and skill.  For those of us who tinker and toile from time to time, there is a feeling of inspiration when in the presence of a truly breathtaking design that honors all of the true artists out there. But that feeling also keeps us going.  Willingness to learn and engage and try new things is the core of American creativity and something that Live Edge Chicago and its partners believe in strongly.  

We are blessed to have an amazing group of contributing craftsmen and artists to our gallery and are excited about the prospect of adding a few new folks to our line-up.  For all of you that have artists or friends that are passionate about their work and looking for space to share their creative expressions, feel free to contact us at anytime.  

Thank you and have a safe and healthy Independence Day!

Celebrating Amazing Artists and Design this week at Live Edge!

The Live Edge crew is very excited about hosting our Designer Event this Thursday, March 23rd from 6-9pm.  Its been less than a year since we opened and our team has been very fortunate to put together an incredible set of events to promote some of the most talented artists we know.  

Because of these artists and the efforts of many friends and family, we were awarded the Best Art & Design Collective by Modern Luxury's CS Interiors.  Please come by to celebrate with us and see some of our new work on Thursday!!

Also, please see our very own Mary Carol Fitzgerald's newest collection below.  We will feature some of her new work at the event, as well as the rest of the spring.

And not to be overlooked, remember to think of us a resource for any live edge furniture or reclaimed wood projects that you or your design team are considering.  Thanks again all!


New Year, New Methods

Live Edge Chicago is happy to announce we are bringing on a new technology to better bridge our gallery to our customers: MintGood!  By going to, you can chat directly to our salesperson Milan, as well as walk through the gallery, all from your home. 

One of our partners at Live Edge happens to be very good friends with the entrepreneurs that are building out the concept for MintGood.  The idea is fascinating.  It is a technology platform that leverages Live Streaming and Video Chat to connect consumers at home with passionate retailers through live video chat.  This allows consumers to tour new products, gain advice and purchase items.  They are breaking down the geographic barriers that exist for Brick & Mortar Stores and providing them a path forward in an age where commerce is being dominated by eCommerce-only companies like Amazon.  And the Live Edge Chicago gallery will be a proving ground for bringing more curious clients to our space via the web.  

We will continue to welcome our friends in the art and design community to visit us in the space and we certainly have not thrown our last party!  Keep coming to us with any inquires regarding Live Edge furniture or photography - we are only a call, email or click away.  

Thank you all for a great start to 2017 and stay tuned for more from our friends at Mintgood!
