What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the dining room? The dining table and the chairs of course! It is essential that you let the table set the style and mood for the rest of the room, and in the case of a farmhouse-style dining space, a classic wooden table is an obvious choice. Think of those simple farm tables or even upcycled pieces crafted from reclaimed wood that are not too ornate. Simplicity is the key here, and once you have the table picked, you can mix and match the seating around it to create a truly exceptional and distinct dining room.
