Bring the comfort of the farmhouse style in your dining room

Hoxton Oak Farmhouse Dining Table

It’s hard to tire of beautiful farmhouse décor. Whether used in your kitchen, living room or bedroom, there is a warmth or comfort about the simple yet luxurious style of farmhouse furniture. 

One way to introduce a more modern take on the classic farmhouse style is by adding a trestle dining table. A trestle table with legs at each end allows for more room at the corners (making it ideal for large family dinners) and is the perfect accompaniment for a stunning dining bench, another farmhouse style favourite. The Hoxton Oak Table is a sophisticated piece for any standalone dining room. With the decorative pillar table legs, the elegant table would look stunning paired with upholstered grey dining chairs – the perfect setting for a dinner party with friends.

Coloured painted furniture is another staple for creating a farmhouse style kitchen or dining room. In terms of colour, it doesn’t get better or more elegant than grey, being the perfect colour to blend with gorgeous mid-toned wood and being far more practical for family life than white! A painted farmhouse dining table will create the perfect base for your dining room, and paired with matching chairs creates a simple palette for you to have fun with when it comes to smaller accessories.

Alternatively, to keep your space light, bright and open light, grey-toned wood with a painted white base might be the perfect option. Combining painted furniture and the trestle base trends, one of our Dorset dining room sets may be perfect – our pick would be the large trestle table which comes with the option of a combination of chairs and a bench, or just chairs if you’d prefer.

In terms of décor, there are two ways to go. For a more Texas farmhouse take on farmhouse décor, bold patterns are a fabulous option. A red buffalo check print or white and blue prints you might find on vintage china are a great way of injecting farmhouse décor. 

A slightly more classic version of farmhouse style is created with the use of neutral colours. Metal plants with gorgeous green plants or lavender to add a bit of colour to your window sill or the centre of your dining table are simple accessories with a huge impact. Complete the look with lots of texture – a combination of knitted cushions and fur throws for that luxurious finish with metal accents such a metal basket for logs (for an injection of industrial style) makes for a really aesthetic farmhouse finish.
