Distressed Finishes


When you are choosing furniture for your modern farmhouse dining room, be sure to look for pieces with distressed finishes. Painted furnishings with eased edges and natural-colored wood with weathered surfaces both bring a rustic feel to this style of space.

Mix-and-Match Furnishings

To give your modern farmhouse dining room an eclectic touch, be sure to avoid being matchy-matchy. Try choosing chairs in a different finish than your table, and if you’re feeling extra bold, mix-and-match several types of chairs. In our look, we choose classic windsor chairs in a natural oak finish and contrasted them with seats made of sheet metal.

Industrial Accents


Although this style is inspired by country living, you want to keep your modern farmhouse dining room looking refined with industrial accents. Black metal grated bins, Edison-style lamps with exposed bulbs, and decor inspired by moving machines all will make your space looking sophisticated and on-trend.

 Neutral Color Palette

Finally, when you are decorating your modern farmhouse dining room, try to choose items that are a neutral color. This keeps the space versatile to change season after season. Black, white, and beige serve as the backdrop for pops of color. In our look, we added a few mint furnishings to give the space some visual interest.
