One of the most eloquent and time tested types of furniture is of the country styled variety. These rustic pieces of furniture are manufactured with wood materials that are either naturally unfinished at the time of purchase or have already been stained, layered, and finished with a glossy surface. The farmhouse dining table features a completely unique and classic design that is defined by its relatively large size along with a square design, although they also come in rectangles. The larger tables might have decorative spindle turned legs, whereas others might have contrasting color patterns which make the table more complex and elaborate.
Although the most widely available shape for tables is the rectangle, there is a multitude of country dining tables that come in various dimensions and shapes such as oval and circular. Designs that are oval have an optional feature of a pedestal base, along with the choice of having a white painted, adding a uniquely charming feel to the table. Farmhouse dining table sets that are made with contrasting colors will most likely come with chairs that feature the same chromatic mix. These rustic sets are commonly referred to as the country cottage style, which seat anywhere from two to six persons. The Shaker design style makes use of simple lines in order to construct various furniture pieces.
In addition to the country style farmhouse dining tables are the many types of small accent pieces that can go anywhere in the house while complementing the farmhouse table and staying true to the country theme. One of these pieces is the mirrored coffee table. This table is great for the country style because it comes in nearly any type of wood you desire like mahogany, oak and pine. Pine is especially appropriate because of the knotting patters and a high grain count. The mirrored aspect of the table illuminates the room due to the reflective surface which will guarantee you a bright and cozy room.
