THE IMPORTANCE OF OUTDOOR LIVING
Why outdoor living? Adding outdoor living spaces to your home are essential to enjoying every day life and making the most of what you have.
We live in one of the most beautiful places on earth – Vancouver Island – and learning to enjoy all it has to offer is one of the great joys of this life.
At Live Edge Design, we prioritize the health and wellbeing of our customers, so creating outdoor living spaces is very important to us in
both our professional and personal lives. In order to kick-start this desire, we created the Mimosa table and chairs.
With a weather resistant aluminum umbrella (complete with the ability to raise and lower on its own with the help of a
wireless remote control!) the Mimosa table is perfect for patio season. It’s a great way to spend your time outside, with
the bonus of never needing to move your patio furniture into the back shed for the winter. The chairs come with heated
cushions that are perfect for the cooler spring or fall nights to extend your outdoor living time.
Word of the Day
- (in carpentry) cut away (a right-angled edge or corner) to make a symmetrical sloping edge."a neat chamfered edge"
- a symmetrical sloping surface at an edge or corner.
A chamfer is essentially a beveled edge along or across a corner. Although the most typical chamfer is 45 degree this is not essential.
Chamfered edges can give a table top a very clean, crisp look and become a focal point in the overall style of a project.
