7 beautiful ways to decorate with your rustic farmhouse table

French farmhouse tables are an essential decor piece. They make such a wonderful statement and add warmth to any space be it classic or modern. Whether you have a large dining space, a compact kitchen or live in an apartment, a rustic farm table will complement your home.


Pairing a rustic farmhouse table with modern chairs is a great way to add colour and personality to a traditionally formal space. A large chandelier ties it all together in the Ett Hem dining room in Stockholm.

Sarah Wessel chose a stunning 19th century farmhouse table as the centerpiece and white upholstered dining chairs for the DC design house.

Vintage and antique chairs with a rustic farmhouse table create a more traditional feel. Oval farm tables are a beautiful choice, and have a much more inclusive seating configuration, particularly in a smaller room.



Outdoor garden chairs are paired with a rustic wooden antique table - the contrast of the materials is very effective, particularly for a summer kitchen.




A bench with a long refectory table gives an industrial feel to this white kitchen. The low hanging vintage light and painted dresser complement the rustic timber table. 



An oval table in a small kitchen is such a practical choice. It's easy to circulate around and can accommodate more chairs than a square table. Walda Pairon uses a folding oval farm table in this beautiful country kitchen.

A folding oval table is a flexible choice for kitchens with limited space. You can quickly rearrange the space depending on how you are eating or entertaining.

An extendable kitchen table is another flexible option. This stylish white dining room showcases beautiful pieces such as huge Medici urns and an antique glass collection.


Vintage workbenches are a great choice for a kitchen island as they are narrow. They also work really well against a wall and give you precious additional bench space. 

Additional storage can be gained if there  is an open shelf beneath, great for platters, salad bowls, fruit and veg. This beautiful French kitchen was featured in Cote Ouest and is bursting with charm.
