A Long Kitchen Island With A Live Edge Countertop

Live edge wood countertops are an interesting way to add a natural element into a modern interior.

In this modern apartment, designed by Yerce Architecture together with ZAAS, they chose to create a long kitchen island using a live edge countertop.

Live edge, also known as natural edge, is when a woodworker or designer incorporates the natural edge of the wood into the design of the piece. The shape of this kitchen island showcases the live edge along the sides, while at the end, it’s been given a smooth cut.

The design of this wood kitchen island also features a cut-out for a sink, an induction cooktop, and room for four people to relax and chat with the cook.

SAOTA Completes A New Home With An Infinity Edge Swimming Pool That Overlooks The LA Skyline

Architecture firm SAOTA has completed a new house with 300-degree views over the LA skyline and the city basin below.

One of the key design elements of the home is the curved infinity-edge swimming pool with a mini palm tree island and wooden decks.

The multiple wooden decks, which step down from the main living areas of the interior, are ideal for relaxing by the pool and have enough room for sun lounges, day beds, side tables, and ottomans. #SwimmingPool #PoolDeck #Deck #Architecture #PoolDesign

At night, hidden lighting found on both the steps leading to the decks and from within the pool, highlight the deck design elements and extend the entertaining area of the home.
