Some home design trends come and go, but others? Well, they don’t call them classics for no reason. We loved and still love 2023’s dopamine decor, but a farmhouse style is equally refined while still expressing your home’s footprint.
There’s just something about the solid wood, neutral tones, and a vibe that’s the decor equivalent of a bowl of chicken orzo soup. And when it comes to farmhouse decor, a great dining table is a must. It naturally becomes your home’s gathering place, whether you’re a solo dweller and use it as a multifunctional tabletop, or it’s the place to be for game night and large family dinners.
With all this in mind, we rounded up a few farmhouse dining tables for every budget, starting at less than $200.
Farmhouse Dining Table
Not only is this drop leaf table super versatile, but the price is also something we can all get behind. Fold the table leaf up for a 40-inch surface that seats up to six people for a family dinner or even game night. The criss-cross legs add an extra touch of stability and durability.
Select the base and top color of this Wayfair dining table; it's pretty compact (just 30 inches wide), but comfortably fits at least two people. Some shoppers even use the sturdy table as a makeshift work desk or end table for a high sofa.
This West Elm table expands to 80 inches with the addition of the drop-in leaf. Not only do the trestle legs have built-in levelers, but the style is also way more interesting than the usual straight, four-post legs.
The classic farmhouse style of this dining room table gets a subtle but fun detail thanks to the two-tone feature. Choose cottage white or black legs to go with the brown top. Either way, the contrast is a great addition to any dining room.
Here's a solid wood table that works equally well paired with a long bench or dining tables. Or you can even do a combination of both. The natural oak has a classic feel and there's a bit of texture on the tabletop where the legs meet.
If you're going to spend a few grand on a dining table, you want one that's classic, but far from boring. That's what you get with this Pottery Barn table that has x-shaped legs that are sturdy and visually interesting. Also, the round table can be extended to seat up to six.
With materials like teak and aluminum, the Sardis dining table doesn't just look good but it's sure to stand the test of time. And the teak wood will naturally lighten to a beautiful gray-ish hue. There's also the option to purchase matching benches.
Not only is this round tabletop a nice departure from the usual rectangle style, but the structural oak legs also add a modern feel. You'll have no problem finding the right chairs to compliment this table, whether you lean into the more rustic or modern feel.
The Transformer dining table just does that; transforms. It's an AT editor favorite for small spaces as the table fits just two people or up to 12. Simply add or subtract the solid wood panels as needed. Quite impressive for a table that comes pre-assembled.
