Rustic Dining Table
Mixed-material pieces are some of our favorite farmhouse decor! The striking yet simple combination of wood and metal means you're allowed to dress this table however you want; it's the ideal base for that classic, eclectic style. The rich, waxed wood offers a subtle glow to warm up your space. A stunning centerpiece for your dining room or eat-in kitchen, the repurposed-teak table is expandable to accommodate up to 10 guests — perfect for entertaining or hosting family celebrations.
Hang a few of these pendant lights over your dining table, sink, or island to instantly add industrial-meets-classic accents to your kitchen. They can easily be wiped down with a damp cloth to keep the white as bright and shining as the day you installed them. If you're someone who appreciates diversity in design, the lights are extremely versatile. You can mix and match these rustic pendant lights with other hanging light fixtures to achieve that farmhouse-chic look.
Understated accents of color are quintessential for completing that country-cottage vibe. One of the best places to pop in some color in the kitchen is the backsplash. This celery-colored tile offers the perfect natural look for a farmhouse kitchen update. Let's face it, the kitchen can get pretty chaotic with prepping family feasts, getting the kids off to school, and cleaning up messes. This soothing green tile is a nice reminder to keep calm and enjoy the warm relaxation of your fresh, rustic kitchen.
You'll feel like a master chef with this modern spiral-bound faucet in your kitchen. Jet spray those stubborn food particles away, and then seamlessly switch to a gentle stream for washing produce. The ultimate in function and form, this pull-down kitchen faucet exudes a retro, industrial vibe while still offering a fresh, clean look to your space. Once you have the ultracool faucet; all you will need is that farmhouse sink to complete the look!
If you're searching for that just-right accent to the farmhouse look, try galvanized metal. The best part about this versatile cart is that it's portable, making it a useful and charming accessory to have in the kitchen. Use it to serve snacks when you're entertaining; convert it to an at-home bar cart; generate a cozy atmosphere with flowers, pictures, or other decor; keep your most-used herbs, spices, and oils within an arm's reach; or establish it as your family's home-base for keys, mail, and other important documents.
If you're looking for a no-fuss upgrade, switch up your drawer pulls. Shown in vintage pewter, these pulls are gently pitted to add just a hint of texture. Farmhouse-chic is all about the little details to make a big impact, so transform your space with some updated hardware. Trust us — it's amazing what sleek, modern hardware can do for your kitchen cabinetry! The 6-inch handles will give your kitchen a new vibe with hardly any effort at all.
Let's be honest, you totally knew this was coming. But is it really a farmhouse kitchen without a farmhouse sink? This essential piece includes the iconic apron front and is made of fireclay polished in a classic white. Soaking dishes and rinsing out bulky pots just got a whole lot easier with a single bowl and 9-inch depth. This must-have farmhouse sink isn't just for washing dishes! If you have a little one, bath time for baby also got a lot more efficient. With this statement sink, your dream farmhouse kitchen can become a reality!
You know what would pair perfectly with that mixed-material dining room table? A set of these striking gunmetal chairs. The cool, dark metal will provide a nice contrast to the warm wood in your farmhouse kitchen. If you're thinking of updating your entire home with the farmhouse-chic style, scattering these chairs throughout several rooms in your house is a great way to create a cohesive aesthetic. Modern and industrial, these chairs work well with kitchen tables, desks, and even as additional seating options when you are entertaining guests.
One of the best things about the farmhouse-chic style is not everything in your kitchen has to "match" perfectly. You'll love this conversation-starter of a bench made of solid wood and aged-iron-tone metal. Mix and match a few chairs and this bench around your table for a collected look that inspires community and togetherness. The communal feel a bench provides is also great for kids, whether they're eating, coloring, or getting on and off the bench repeatedly to find that elusive crayon that keeps falling on the floor.
No true farmhouse is complete without a set of wooden trays. Arrange one (or both) of the trays as a centerpiece on your dining table to artfully display fruit and other snacks, or use them to serve cocktails at your next dinner party. Our favorite function for these country-chic trays, though, is when your sweetheart surprises you with breakfast in bed. Keep them in the kitchen or move them around the living room, bathroom, and other areas of your home for a quick change in decor. No matter what, you can't go wrong with this set of two classic pinewood trays.
