So, what is modern farmhouse style and why is it any different than the farmhouse style you already know and love? We’ve taken Joanna Gaines’ signature style and updated it for those who want a more modern take on a classic style. We’ve collected classic pieces with prevalent cottage and rustic style that also show modern and contemporary influences.
Authentic wood tones and rustic style details are still prevalent, but so are darker finishes, leather and just plain cool contemporary style details. We’re not saying you have to give up your beloved farmhouse style (we would never suggest that!). But a modern update never hurt anyone and we have some truly stylish modern farmhouse furniture coming to the showroom floor this month.
Modern Farmhouse Furniture and Decor
No farmhouse dining room is complete without a stunning table to serve as a focal point. No one does a modern take on farmhouse style quite like Rachael Ray. We have three dining table options: a sturdy trestle table, a cottage-inspired pedestal table and a classic farmhouse table. You have three different wood tones and finishes to choose from which makes it simple to create your own modern dining space. One of the easiest ways to do so is to mix and match your dining room chairs. Rachael Ray has twelve choices in the new Everyday collection to help- we personally like the square back side chairs in two different finishes. Clean lines and squared-off design is a modern hallmark and the perfect way to shake up a farmhouse dining room.
A staple of any modern farmhouse living room is neutral upholstery. Rustic colors like cream and soft brown serve as anchors for the rest of your farmhouse décor. The Franklin Brannon sectional and Flexsteel Sullivan sofa are the perfect combination of casual rustic style and modern form. If casual comfort is your must-have for a living room, the Southern Motion Five Star sectional is the perfect choice to accommodate everyone in the family. A clean, casual design can actually fit well in a modern farmhouse living room. It serves as a neutral palette that is easy to decorate with modern décor.
Offset dark and light- pair a light sofa with dark end tables and vice versa. An easy way to update a classic farmhouse living room? Add a splash of mid-century modern style with a brass floor lamp with globe lights.
Pacific Coast Lighting Buchanan Lamp (in-store only)
One of the most stylish ways to modernize a farmhouse bedroom is with sleek contemporary details. The Coast to Coast mirrored vanity set is the perfect piece to elevate your bedroom. Anchored by a full-length mirror, it features enough storage space to make getting ready in the morning a breeze. The mirrored inlays and silver nail head trim will catch the light and make your space seem larger than it is. A plush neutral stool will easily tie back to neutral bedroom furniture and décor.
