Live Edge Furniture is a labor of love for founders of Umdabu Robert and Michael. They are passionate about the natural beauty of wood and love the idea of breathing life and value into objects which were previously untouched. They believe that perfection is nature, and love being able to incorporate natural elements into contemporary settings.
Live Edge Wood slab benches are made by selecting the perfect piece of wood from the workshop. Once you’ve done that, seeing the piece come together is a truly rewarding experience. Umdabu's wood is sourced entirely in Africa and each furniture piece is 100% handcut, sanded and finished at the Umdabu workshop in South Africa. The inspiration for each item comes from its natural beauty.
