The farmhouse style is a popular choice. Easy to achieve, warm and homely, it is the top choice for any home, from a busy family pad to a stylish apartment. But if you think that this means harking back to traditional long-gone days, think again.
A farmhouse table, along with subtle accessories and detailing, is ideal for the modern dining room. But how do you seamlessly marry the farmhouse look with a modern, light airy feel?
The farmhouse table
Undoubtedly, when it comes to the kitchen/diner or dining room styled along farmhouse lines, it is the farmhouse table that is undoubtedly the centrepiece.
The Windsor oak extending farmhouse dining table has all the key elements needed to pull off the look. Large without being imposing, it is the satisfying chunkiness of the top and the detailed legwork that makes this the perfect solution.
If you want more than a hint of modern, then take a look at its same table with white legs. The colour may be neutral but in a modern dining room landscape, the white oak farmhouse table is a great option.
Tying it together
With any design scheme, it is the details that tie it all together, bringing a sense of cohesion to the whole dining room.
With the farmhouse style, this can be relatively easy to do, IF you know what you are looking for!
- Worktop and tabletop – the farmhouse style is all about natural materials but especially wood. For a farmhouse kitchen, opting for wood worktops and cupboard doors is a great move, especially if you can marry them to the farmhouse table top. Choose lighter woods and the best quality for your budget too.
- Matching sideboard – a sideboard in the dining room is an essential piece of furniture for storage. And matching this with the farmhouse table brings a sense of cohesion and style to the room. The Windsor large white painted sideboard will work with either the painted or non-painted version of the Windsor table.
- Modern twists – on one hand, you want the room to flow in terms of its appeal and looks but everything too matching means a boring landscape. Introducing small twists is a way of avoiding this and with the dining room, there is no denying that modern dining chairs are a great addition. From soft-to-the-touch leather dining chairs to fabric upholstered dining chairs, there is an array of solutions that allow you to create a unique finish.
Other farmhouse details
The farmhouse kitchen is as much about function as it is about style. And so, accessories can be as simple as you like. From fresh flowers as the table centrepiece to a functional wool rug that acts as a carpeted island for your farmhouse table, keep the colours light and pastel for a true homage to the farmhouse style.
Its no surprise that the farmhouse style is popular – always warm and welcoming, it is the perfect style for any dining room.
