The true origin of the Farmhouse Kitchen Table is not fully known, even to the most knowledgeable antique furniture experts. The most plausible of the theories concerning its origin are that they were developed by American farmers in the early nineteenth century. These American farmers were poor, and did not have money to buy fancy dining tables for their homes. The designs are also said to be inspired from some English men’s designs.
Antique farmhouse kitchen tables are pretty rare. This is because when something is antique, that means that it is over one hundred years old. The original tables are simple, with clean lines, and nothing too fancy. The most common shape of these tables is the original rectangle. Sometimes you may also be able to find more rounded designs, but they are far more rare than rectangles.
The Farmhouse Kitchen table is a great decorative piece for your home as well as pieces of American furniture. If your home is decorated with a style such as country, rustic, contemporary, or country French, this table would give a nice touch to your home. You can get these tables from some select stores, but most of your normal furniture stores will not carry this product. Be aware, that if you buy a truly antique Farmhouse Kitchen table, it may not be in the best condition, seeing that it would be one hundred years old.
If you want to get one of these tables, but don’t want an antique one, you should know that these tables have been in reproduction for years. To find a truly antique piece is hard, and it is expensive, so a nice alternative is a reproduced one. The styles can also be customized to your specific home style. The color and height can be changed, depending on where you go to get yours. If you want the antique look without the expense, aged paint finishes should do the job.
