One of a farm table’s best looks is when its dressed in simplicity. Some fresh florals and some modern, fabric chairs will adorn a more organic, rustic piece just right while still enhancing the natural facets of the table. Let it stand in the breakfast nook, near the windows for some beautiful, natural light.

Don’t be afraid to add a bit of color to the neutral piece either. Some warm colors like eggplant, cranberry and emerald will really brighten up the space but also create even more of an inviting warmth, which is perfect for an everyday look and for dinnertime with the family.

It’s also quite easy to create a vintage-inspired, feminine escape as well. How amazing would your summer tea party be with a table that not only fits everyone on the guest list, but creates some a natural, beautiful foundation. Farm tables allows you to have the functional aspects of a great table and allows you to build your theme around its basis. So, with some pops of pink, a crystal chandelier hanging above and some dainty white chairs – you’ll have the perfect cottage space!

You don’t even have to use a farm table as your eating table. Place it in front of the bay window for a place to hold the books or the kids to do the homework, for a light, refreshing look. Just  make sure you let the natural sunshine in to keep things light and breezy. It’s easy for a farm table to create a dull, dark atmosphere so make sure you use cool textures and happy colors around one.

Throw your rustic piece into your most modern room. With architectural chairs, sharp edges and crisp colors a cozy farm table would make for quite the nice surprise in your game room, dining room or even in your home office as your personal desk.  Not only will you have the space (since farm tables are typically large in size) but again, you’ll have all the freedom in the world to choice your styles and accents without worrying about if it goes with the biggest piece of furniture in the room.
