Want Unique Event Table Decor? Hire Our Rustic Farmhouse Tables

Rustic farmhouse tables were a long standing feature in many homes in the 70s, 80s, and even 90s.

In design, they were wooden dining tables. Often styled with crochet table mats or full tablecloth.

From the 2000s onward, there was an influx of Chinese imports where you’d see shiny marble, glass, and rice husks tables in many homes.

But lately rustic farmhouse tables have returned to reclaim their lost glory.

Besides refined wood, you can make a rustic table from reclaimed wood. Besides homes and restaurants, they’re now popular at events too

BUT what’s so fascinating about them?

It’s probably because they’re simple, timeless, versatile, and effortless to style. Plus, you can use them for low and high seating.

The low seating culture

The low seating culture is prevalent in Asian, Arabian and African cultures.

The Swahili and Somali communities prefer to sit on carpeted floors and eat from a communal tray called ‘sinia.’

In Japan, it’s known as the Tatami culture, and was adapted from the Chinese. Tatami is a flooring material or mat, that’s still used in traditional Japanese-style rooms.

Whatever your style, check out the PHOTOS below to see what appeals to you!

In this look, decor elements were drawn from the nearby environment for styling.

For example newspapers for chargers, painted stones and wood lanterns for table centerpieces.
