We recently reported that the Modern Farmhouse style (think lots of rich, weathered woods, neutral textiles and industrial lighting and decor), was the favorite amongst over 30% of a group that was surveyed. One of the key pieces to that look is, of course, the farmhouse table, which seams to invite life to happen around it in a buzzing family kitchen. Take a look through 10 of our favorites for every budget.


Extendable tables are great for smaller spaces: keep this one to a four-seater for everyday, but add in a leaf to convert it to a six-seater for when you’re ready to be the hostess with the mostest.

This solid acacia wood table stretches from 55″ to 71″ to accommodate your fluctuating RSVP list.

The weathered finished of this trestle dining table from Target means you won’t have to worry about visible wear-and-tear on a pristine surface.

Rustic but still stripped down, I love the golden hue of this classic trestle table that sits up to six.

Our Previous Lists:


For a little more space (and a little more money), this generously sized table for eight has a rich, darker finish if lighter woods aren’t your cup of tea.

At 82″ long, there’s enough room for eight to gather around this hearty table.

This is the type of table I envision gathering around with my future family for a Thanksgiving feast, where I’ll prep my jam jars and punch out biscuit dough on an easy Sunday morning. I have a lot of hopes and dreams for this table, and I don’t think it’ll disappoint anytime soon.

Other Good Resources:


Rustic, farmhouse-style tables can sometimes have a heavy look, which is why I love this super simple, airy piece from 57 St. Design.

With a waxed pine finish (sealed with an oil-based protector), the kiln-dried reclaimed pine wood of this Pottery Barn table will likely just get more and more beautiful as it ages gracefully, wearing any nicks and usage like a badge of honor.

Choose between a live or traditional edge, three different sizes (up to 108″ long), and 15 different stains to get just the farmhouse table you want that’s sourced and crafted in America.
