Creating Connections

Commercial Furniture Solutions For Public Environments


Public spaces, characterised by their accessibility and communal nature, are designed to foster social interaction, engagement, and inclusivity. Furniture and space design play integral roles in shaping the functionality and atmosphere of these areas. The selection and arrangement of furniture in public spaces should prioritise comfort, durability, and versatility to accommodate diverse user needs.  


The design of public spaces must consider the aesthetic appeal of furniture to create an inviting ambiance that promotes a sense of community and well-being.

Outdoor Spaces

Living Edge truly leads by example, blending a commitment to social responsibility, with a forward-facing outlook and passion for sourcing the best original and sustainable design for the Australian market.


Designing public spaces involves a thoughtful orchestration of layout, pathways, and open areas to facilitate seamless movement and interaction. Well-designed public spaces balance the need for both intimate corners and open vistas, ensuring a dynamic environment that accommodates various activities.  


The arrangement of furniture should support the natural flow of foot traffic, creating defined zones for different purposes, such as relaxation, work, or socialising. Lighting and landscaping elements can further enhance the spatial experience, contributing to a visually stimulating and safe environment. Ultimately, successful public space design with thoughtful furniture selection fosters a sense of belonging, encouraging people to engage with their surroundings and each other.

Our Capabilities - Public Environments


Lobby spaces are transitional areas in buildings designed to welcome and engage occupants and visitors. Incorporating a blend of seating options, lighting, and architectural elements, lobby design aims to create a welcoming atmosphere that complements the overall aesthetic of the building while facilitating social interaction and a positive first impression. The lobby space plays a crucial role in conveying the values and personality of the space they precede.

Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor public spaces are open areas accessible to the community, fostering social interaction, recreation, and relaxation. These spaces feature diverse elements like benches, greenery, and pathways, encouraging outdoor activities. Thoughtful design considers environmental factors, providing shade, seating, and amenities for various needs, promoting well-being and a sense of community connection.

Libraries and Galleries

Libraries and Galleries
Libraries are curated repositories of knowledge where furniture and space design prioritise quiet study areas, modular shelving for organized accessibility, and comfortable reading spaces. Gallery spaces, dedicated to showcasing art, emphasise versatile display options, adequate lighting, and dynamic layouts that enhance visual engagement. Both spaces aim to create environments that facilitate learning, exploration, and appreciation through thoughtful furniture and spatial arrangements.

Places Of Worship

Place Of Worship
For sacred spaces designed for communal worship and reflection, furniture and space design should focus on creating a serene and contemplative atmosphere. Seating arrangements accommodate congregational gatherings. Architectural elements may include symbolic motifs and religious iconography. Lighting is often designed to evoke a sense of reverence. The overall design aims to enhance the spiritual experience and foster a sense of connection.

Public lounges are social spaces designed for public access, relaxation, and informal gatherings. Furniture and space design prioritise comfort with uniform seating arrangements, versatile tables, and designed with longevity in mind. Lighting is often ambient, creating a subdued atmosphere. The layout encourages social interaction, offering a mix of private corners and communal areas making lounges inviting places for individuals and groups to unwind.
