After my recent post on dining chairs, I had a few requests for a post on tables, as well. I’m partial to the farmhouse table after buying one for my office/dining room in our last house. It worked great as a large desk and so many different styles of chairs can be paired with it when used for guests. I wouldn’t say my personal style is farmhouse but somehow this table works. I’ve included a shot of it at Christmas a few years ago and in our current home last year. I like the texture it adds to each room and I see this being a piece I’ll hang on to and pass down. (That’s one reason I started having friends sign it underneath.)
You can see more pictures of how the table looks in our current breakfast area here.
I’ve rounded up my top five online picks for farmhouse tables. As a point of reference, I found mine on Craigslist and paid $500. Although not inexpensive, I knew it was custom built and not a terrible price based on my comparison shopping.

Emily – thanks so much for this post. I was one of the people who requested a roundup of farmhouse tables. My style isn’t farmhouse either but I love the casual feel of these tables. I think the Pier 1 table will be perfect – for size and our budget.

Of course Im in love with the Williams Sonoma one! I found at Target online they have a line called Farmhouse something or other – and I’m not farmhouse either – but I do love a farmhouse table. The Target one isn’t bad but I always wonder about long term quality from there. https://www.target.com/p/harvester-62-rectangle-dining-table-acorn-beekman-1802-farmhouse-153/-/A-24004414#lnk=sametab

I like the look of it and it has gotten pretty good reviews. My only hesitation is that cross bar. I feel like I would kick the heck out of my leg every time. But maybe that’s just me :)
