It’s tough to beat the rustic charm and welcoming warmth of farmhouse designs. And the aesthetic’s inviting look makes it particularly well-suited for a dining room, where many of us enjoy warm meals with friends and family.
A dining table is typically the centerpiece of dining room furniture, so choosing the right one can help you solidify your farmhouse style. Here, we’re highlighting some of our favorite farmhouse dining tables so you can find the perfect piece of furniture, whether you’re seeking an authentic farmhouse dining room design, a farmhouse-meets-French country look, or you want a more modern dining space with just a touch of farmhouse flair.
What is a Farmhouse Dining Table?
Farmhouse styles come in many different forms, from traditional rustic farmhouse designs to more modern farmhouse looks that feel a little lighter and brighter. Therefore, you can find a variety of different farmhouse dining tables depending on the look you’re after. But most farmhouse dining tables share a few characteristics, including an engineered or solid wood design that lets natural wood grain shine through.
“Farmhouse tables are almost always made out of rustic or reclaimed wood,” says Danny Robertson. “The thick rustic wood is the farmhouse table's defining feature as it gives a traditional, warm, and generous feel to the piece. While most farmhouse tables are made from wood, either stained or partly painted, some contemporary or transitional farmhouse tables may have a more modern square wood or iron base.”
"This style is typically oversized and becomes the statement piece of your dining room due to both its size and prominent features."
Farmhouse dining tables are also usually large and more ornate than many other dining table styles, often featuring spun leg details and large silhouettes similar to Scandinavian-inspired dining tables. "This style is typically oversized and becomes the statement piece of your dining room due to both its size and prominent features,” says Anna Franklin.
However, you can also find dining tables that blend rustic farmhouse charm with a minimal, mid-century silhouette if you’re in the market for something a little lighter and airier than traditional farmhouse style.
This pared-back, 90-inch dining table offers a modern twist on a traditional farmhouse dining table. Featuring a solid wood core with your choice of a walnut or white oak veneer, the table comfortably seats eight people, making it a great fit for large dining rooms.
However, the table also comes in a 72-inch size if you’re looking for something a bit smaller. You can couple this versatile piece with other farmhouse decor to lean into a classic aesthetic or pair it with more contemporary decor for a fresh look.
Equal parts stylish and sustainable, this solid wood dining table is crafted from responsibly harvested pine while nestled atop a trestle base.

Speaking of versatility, this beautiful dining table from Maiden Home comes in eight different finishes, including unique two-toned finishes that combine materials like driftwood and pecan. "The Carlisle offers versatility in design - you can choose to create a super visual focal point in your space by contrasting the wood finishes or you can draw this back and choose one solid finish," says Grace Hoffend, design advisor at Maiden Home.
You can also choose from three different lengths, ranging from 72 inches to 120 inches, so it’s easy to find the ideal fit for your farmhouse dining room. "The Carlisle is meant as a conversational piece because chairs will be on either side of the table to direct focus to the guests joining for dinner," adds Hoffend.
Made from solid acacia wood and reinforced with a metal class bar, this farmhouse dining table is most definitely built to withstand the test of time, both in style and functionality.
It’s also versatile, allowing you to choose between a regular or extendable dining table, as well as 59- or 71-inch lengths. Pair it with six matching dining chairs or swap out a couple of chairs for a matching dining bench to complete the look.
