                    [post_content] => Choosing a farmhouse table for your home can feel as momentous and personal as picking out a piece of art or even your wedding outfit. Aside from the creative choices involved, such as picking paint or stain colors, there are some basic practical considerations for everyday functionality.

1. What size farmhouse table do I need?

The ideal dining table size for you depends upon the number of people you seat most days, as well as the size of your room or dining area. This chart shows recommended table sizes based upon number of people for both round tables and rectangular tables with a width of 36”- 42”.
# of people Seats comfortably Workable size
4 4' rect / 48" round  42" round
6 6' rect / 60" round 5' rect / 54" round
8 8' rect / 72" round 7' rect / 66" round
10 10' rect 9' rect
Extensions   Extensions? If you entertain often, company board extensions are available for most of our farmhouse tables. They slide into the ends of the table to maintain the look of the long planks used in traditional farmhouse tables and to avoid a split in the center. A pair of extensions increases the size of your dining table by 3 feet - space for four more guests. Adequate clearance? Allow a clearance of 36”around your table for walking and pulling out chairs (the minimum without feeling too tight is 27”). Make sure that your dining chairs or benches will fit comfortably around your new table, allowing 2-6” between chairs. If you have a banquette, also consider either a trestle or pedestal base for your table to avoid interference with a table leg. For additional information, please see our Dining Table Seating Guide.

2. What kind of wood should I choose for the top of my farmhouse table?

Selecting a type of wood for your farmhouse table involves striking a balance between appearance, durability and cost. Appearance For a farmhouse table with individual character, reclaimed wood such as pine and oak is a popular choice. Other woods, such as maple or new pine, will give your table a classic farmhouse look without rustic details like distressing. Wood with beautiful graining, such as oak, should be shown off with a stained or waxed finish. If you prefer your table painted, choose a wood with fewer knots (like poplar or maple) for no show-through. Durability If you are concerned with keeping the everyday wear of your table to a minimum, consider the hardness of the wood you choose.  Softer woods, such as new pine or poplar, can be more susceptible to dings. Here is a rough guide to the hardness of different woods by density:

New Pine                      Poplar     Old Pine                                Maple                                                              Oak

Soft ---------------------------------------------- Medium ------------------------------------------ Hard

 350  400  450  500  550  600  650  700  750  800  850  900  950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 1250 1300

  Cost For farmhouse tables, the harder the wood, the higher the cost. Pine and poplar are the least expensive woods while oak costs considerably more. Reclaimed (old) wood tables, which are more durable than those made from new pine, are also less expensive than hardwood tables. Based upon our 17 years of experience designing custom farmhouse tables, the most popular wood choices remain pine, old (reclaimed) pine and maple.  

3. What is the most durable finish for the top of my farmhouse table?

A clear top coat over either a stained or painted finish is the most durable surface for a farmhouse table top. Remember that any major surface damage to this finish may require professional repair – or just leave the marks to increase the character of the table top. Whatever finish you choose for your farmhouse table, we recommend using place mats, coasters and hot pads to keep it free of water rings or burn marks.  

4. How do I care for my farmhouse table?

The top of your farmhouse table is easy to maintain – clean with a damp sponge and dry with a clean, soft cloth. DO NOT USE CLEANERS OR SOLVENTS (Pledge, 409, nail polish removers, etc). For small dings or scratches on painted surfaces, touch up paint (not stain) is available from us. A stain from your local hardware store in a similar color to your table finish can fix minor dings or scratches on stained tables, but major repairs or refinishing should be left to a professional. Only apply wax touch-ups (we can provide brand information) if you have a table with a waxed finish and want to freshen the look periodically. Do not sand before applying wax, then let dry and then buff off with clean, dry, soft cloth.

Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look - whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal - consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles - these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic. Our Cottage Home designers suggest laying out newspaper on the floor to simulate the size of the rug to help you pick the right dimensions. For a calming environment, choose a rug with serene hues of the sea and sandy beach. The above gallery of calming colors such as natural, seafoam, driftwood, ivory and citrus shows a selection of fabrics that complement a popular Cottage Home beach cottage rug - the Caribbean Sea Pottery Braided Indoor/Outdoor Rug. This rug comes in several colors and is easy to care for. Each fabric in our Shoreline Slipcovered Furniture Collection can be purchased by the yard or used to cover one of our sofas, chairs or ottomans.

[post_title] => Color Board: Sea and Sand [post_excerpt] => Building a room around a rug is a classic design mantra. To select one rug that pulls off just the right look - whether it be cottage style or even farmhouse formal - consider the texture, shape, size and palette. Bold solid colors or muted melanges, soft wool or versatile polypropylene or jute, traditional rectangles or eye-catching circles - these are all choices that can help steer your living room toward either cozy or dramatic.

Ever want to embrace a trend -- or maybe even a few -- but you're afraid to oversaturate your space with that look? Anything but overdone, this cottage bedroom showcases a mix of rarely-linked decor sensibilities -- southwestern, industrial and nautical, interwoven with a hint of modern. Use of a unifying color scheme and a just a few key pieces from each style, along with some clever hybrid items, creates a unique and easy compatibility.

Sophisticated style choices coexist in this bedroom, yet it looks satisfyingly sparse and casual. Throw pillows with a simple chevron design bring to mind ship signal flags, but also fit with the area rug's primitive stepped design. Equally at home in a harbor town tavern or an restored warehouse, the wood and rope chandelier bridges the room's industrial and nautical elements. White and navy blue instantly conjures up a nautical vibe in this small coastal cottage bedroom, and with the colorway echoed in the Southwestern rug, the two styles are instantly reconciled. As a bonus, using a deep inky blue in a limited swath just behind the headboard creates a feeling of depth as the wall recedes under the sway of the dark color.

What's your favorite style pairing?

1. Footbridge Upholstered Ottoman | 2. Brushed Nickel Three Pendant Chandelier | 3. Medina Green Jacquard Woven Wool Rug | 4. Grenada Console Table |  5. Rooster Rock Leather Sofa | 6. Myrtle Leather Ottoman

Injecting a beach cottage feel in your home can be as easy as pairing a neutral duo, such as silvery grey and sandy natural, with seaborne hues like blues and greens. A mix of weathered grey and sand with aqua and deep sea blue brings to mind bleached driftwood set against a shimmering blue sky and ocean expanse. Offering a modern twist on a tribal pattern, the Medina Green Jacquard Woven Wool Rug effortlessly ties together this beach-driven palette. Mixing leather and upholstery, wood and metal, we have selected some pieces to play off all the great colors in this rug: dove grey, soft tan, turquoise, citrus green and deep teal.

If leather is to your liking, our Summerhouse Leather Furniture Collection offers many cottage style sofas, chairs, ottomans and more in an array of bold colors, and many of the pieces are also available upholstered. The Rooster Rock Leather Sofa, also available in an armchair, looks smart with the Myrtle Leather Ottoman. The Footbridge Upholstered Ottoman is a longer option, and can also be used as an impromptu bench or coffee table. Painted furniture always looks at home in a beach cottage living room, and the Grenada Console Table picks up the summery shade of green in this rug. Shown here for added inspiration, the Brushed Nickel Three Pendant Chandelier can add some character to really any room in your beach cottage.

Down time is vital for maintaining a positive attitude and good health, and soothing surroundings can make all the difference in your ability to unwind. Generous and comfortable seating, attractive painted furniture with storage to put clutter out of sight, and appealing color and texture choices can all make your home an easier place in which to relax. Mixing an earthy color such as golden ochre with beachy sea-inspired colors gives an added element of depth to nudge you into a contemplative mood. Woven wicker patterns and chunky rugs may put you in mind of a cozy cottage in which you once spent a pleasant sabbatical.

Above is a sampling of cottage style furniture - wicker, painted and stained - along with a durable braided rug with an updated palette. Two veranda style pieces from our Cottage Wicker Furniture collection are appropriate for either your covered porch or living room, depending upon where you prefer to unwind. They have a definite personality but are still easy to mix with other wicker and wood furniture. The Westside Stained Rocker is a sure way to add relaxation to your routine, and it comes in several stained, painted and antiqued options. The slender turnings of the rocker are echoed in the Montserrat Side Table, a stylishly compact piece from our new Islands Collection. And finally, one of our many wall art offerings - the Azure Sky Canvas Giclee - blends faultlessly with our Habitat Fountain Blue Braided Indoor/Outdoor Rug.

This ground-level porch affords an element of natural privacy through the surrounding screen of foliage, and a partial wall serves to separate a dining table and chairs from a sitting area without losing any feeling of openness. The white bamboo chairs, white painted console table with tapered legs and white painted open woodwork railings cultivate a clean, airy feeling. Aqua and butter yellow accents on pillows and other accessories, as well as touches like palmetto fronds, add a cheery dose of softly contrasting color. Bamboo furniture is perfect for covered porches, and is becoming more of a staple for indoor use as well. We offer various wicker furniture collections, of which some items are rattan and bamboo, including our Cottage Wicker and Porch Wicker. Click here for more customizable bamboo pieces.

White painted moldings provide a subtle contrast. A comfortable mood deepens with graduated tones from cafe au lait pillows, mink brown cushions, and rustic dark wood pieces such as the driftwood mirror and table. The added beauty of this room is that its low-profile disposition serves as the perfect foundation for changing seasonal decor.  A neutral base can easily be dressed up and down for any occasion, especially at the holidays. Just as natural elements like smooth stones on the hearth and seagrass upon the mantel add a coastal twist to this comfy cottage style, this room could easily be readied for Thanksgiving guests with some gourds and corncobs and substituting an orange or harvest gold area rug. Adding deep red velvet pillows and some berries and evergreen boughs on the mantel would in turn set the scene for festive winter meetings. And when spring returns, adding pussy willows, striped pillows in chambray blue and a white painted table in lieu of the driftwood one can freshen the look.

Full Sail II Canvas Giclee | Sunset Canvas Giclee | Wheelhouse Mirror | Jasper Woven Jute/Wool Rug | Large Orleans Arm Chair | Shorehaven Round Dining Table

Mixing the colors of the earth and sea can instantly lend a comforting richness to any room. For this coastal dining room, we picked honeyed wood furniture, nautical wall art in bright azure, gold and rust, and an area rug in ochre, rusty orange and bluish gray. Pairing clear blues with burnt earth tones creates a perfect backdrop for the seasonal segue from summer to autumn. Bringing it all together is the Jasper Woven Jute/Wool Rug, in a melange of fall colors and yarns of various thicknesses. The distinctively European Large Orleans Arm Chair comes in 80 standard paint colors and 12 stains, with options for the customizing the wood, seat and finish. We think these look nice with the silhouette of the Shorehaven Round Dining Table, with its curved legs and arched crossbar. Shown in burnt caramel, this customizable table is available in 7 standard stains and 19 paint colors. Apt accompaniments to this earthy trio are the Wheelhouse Mirror, a metal piece in an aged copper finish with beveled mirror, as well as the wall art. Both giclees come in 5 different sizes and are done in a knife-gel finish for an authentic, textured look.

Aside from the creative choices involved, such as picking paint or stain colors, there are some basic practical considerations for everyday functionality.

1. What size farmhouse table do I need?

The ideal dining table size for you depends upon the number of people you seat most days, as well as the size of your room or dining area. This chart shows recommended table sizes based upon number of people for both round tables and rectangular tables with a width of 36”- 42”.
# of people Seats comfortably Workable size
4 4' rect / 48" round  42" round
6 6' rect / 60" round 5' rect / 54" round
8 8' rect / 72" round 7' rect / 66" round
10 10' rect 9' rect
Extensions   Extensions? If you entertain often, company board extensions are available for most of our farmhouse tables. They slide into the ends of the table to maintain the look of the long planks used in traditional farmhouse tables and to avoid a split in the center. A pair of extensions increases the size of your dining table by 3 feet - space for four more guests. Adequate clearance? Allow a clearance of 36”around your table for walking and pulling out chairs (the minimum without feeling too tight is 27”). Make sure that your dining chairs or benches will fit comfortably around your new table, allowing 2-6” between chairs. If you have a banquette, also consider either a trestle or pedestal base for your table to avoid interference with a table leg. For additional information, please see our Dining Table Seating Guide.

2. What kind of wood should I choose for the top of my farmhouse table?

Selecting a type of wood for your farmhouse table involves striking a balance between appearance, durability and cost. Appearance For a farmhouse table with individual character, reclaimed wood such as pine and oak is a popular choice. Other woods, such as maple or new pine, will give your table a classic farmhouse look without rustic details like distressing. Wood with beautiful graining, such as oak, should be shown off with a stained or waxed finish. If you prefer your table painted, choose a wood with fewer knots (like poplar or maple) for no show-through. Durability If you are concerned with keeping the everyday wear of your table to a minimum, consider the hardness of the wood you choose.  Softer woods, such as new pine or poplar, can be more susceptible to dings. Here is a rough guide to the hardness of different woods by density:

New Pine                      Poplar     Old Pine                                Maple                                                              Oak

Soft ---------------------------------------------- Medium ------------------------------------------ Hard

 350  400  450  500  550  600  650  700  750  800  850  900  950 1000 1050 1100 1150 1200 1250 1300

  Cost For farmhouse tables, the harder the wood, the higher the cost. Pine and poplar are the least expensive woods while oak costs considerably more. Reclaimed (old) wood tables, which are more durable than those made from new pine, are also less expensive than hardwood tables. Based upon our 17 years of experience designing custom farmhouse tables, the most popular wood choices remain pine, old (reclaimed) pine and maple.  

3. What is the most durable finish for the top of my farmhouse table?

A clear top coat over either a stained or painted finish is the most durable surface for a farmhouse table top. Remember that any major surface damage to this finish may require professional repair – or just leave the marks to increase the character of the table top. Whatever finish you choose for your farmhouse table, we recommend using place mats, coasters and hot pads to keep it free of water rings or burn marks.  

4. How do I care for my farmhouse table?

The top of your farmhouse table is easy to maintain – clean with a damp sponge and dry with a clean, soft cloth. DO NOT USE CLEANERS OR SOLVENTS (Pledge, 409, nail polish removers, etc). For small dings or scratches on painted surfaces, touch up paint (not stain) is available from us. A stain from your local hardware store in a similar color to your table finish can fix minor dings or scratches on stained tables, but major repairs or refinishing should be left to a professional. Only apply wax touch-ups (we can provide brand information) if you have a table with a waxed finish and want to freshen the look periodically. Do not sand before applying wax, then let dry and then buff off with clean, dry, soft cloth.
