I’m excited to finally be sharing my farmhouse dining room with y’all! I can’t believe I’ve been in my home for a year! I think it’s about time I show you guys this space as I get asked about it almost daily. Let me give ya the deets…
First things first, when it comes to a dining room, a table is the foundation. Since the room itself is oversized I was on the hunt for a 12′ table. I looked EVERYWHERE. I started going down the road of having one made, but once I got the bids back, they were way too expensive. I finally came across a farmhouse beauty a la Restoration Hardware. With the leaves installed it would be long enough to fit the space!! I was hesitant about going with the natural wood color, but was SO happy I did. It is a beautiful contrast between the black throughout my home, grayish wood floors, and warm glen rose stone on the fireplace. This table comes in 3 different finishes and multiple sizes, so it can fit in many different spaces.
I get asked about sealing/protecting my table frequently. As you can see from my pictures, I don’t do that. It’s a personal preference as I want the wood on the table to wear naturally and feel “lived” in. The farmhouse vibe has an old world feel and I don’t want every piece of furniture to be perfect.
Next up, I needed some chairs! When selecting furniture for the house, I knew I was going to get X-back chairs for the dining room. The style is V farmhouse and the ‘X’ detail is consistent throughout my home. I went with black because it is my accent “color” in my home. It was also important for me to find an option with a cushion/leather seat, as I want my guest to be comfortable when sitting in them. Again, I found these at Restoration Hardware. I’ve had them for over a year with no issues.
Now for some wingback beauties! I alway envisioned the table the have different end chairs. I wanted them to be oversized as well as a different textile, to really stand out against the wood table and chairs. I finally found my natural herringbone beauties on Arhaus. Not only was the fabric perfect, but the chair also has black legs, which is actually pretty hard to find! These gems are currently on sale – $600 off!! Check them out here.
Lastly I finished off the space with my most favorite fixtures in my home. I used not one, but two, and I love the way it turned out! Since the table is so long and the space is very open, the room definitely warranted two fixtures. My contractor was apprehensive, but I told him to trust me. 😉 The iron lights fit perfectly with the long table shape, centered in the room. It was the perfect touch to complete my modern farmhouse dining space. I want to mention my fixtures are aged iron, not black, even though they look like it. It’s very hard to find BLACK finished items but remember, iron tends to look very similar. Don’t be scared of it!
I’m aware my dining room furniture is pretty spendy, so I also wanted to give y’all some DUPE options to get this look-for-less! I’ve found farmhouse tables, x-back chairs and iron fixtures at a fraction of the price. Scroll down to shop the DEAL pieces I found.
