Visualize a rustic villa in the peaceful European countryside, and you’ll understand the appeal of French country furniture. It is charming yet substantial, and combines a traditional look with a lighter, casual feel.
A dining table is the centerpiece of the room where families often spend the most time together, making the table essential to the creation of a welcoming atmosphere. Most French country dining tables feature wood as their primary material, setting a warm, rustic tone for the rest of the room. In some cases the entire table is built from hand-crafted wood (or pressed wood materials, for less-expensive reproductions). In others, wood is prominent as a secondary or accent material and still frames the look of the table.
The largest group of French country dining tables is rectangular in shape, although smaller oval- or round-shaped tables can be chosen in order to save space; square-shaped tables are harder to find in the French country style. The tabletop’s finish will be dull rather than glossy.
Neutral colors are a hallmark of this design approach, so it’s unlikely you’ll see many French country dining table sets featuring pastel colors or accents. Greens or oranges may be included in patterned upholstery for the chairs, however. Those chairs are likely to have slat or ladder-style backs in keeping with their rustic design, and antique or high-end sets may also display the curved lines and carved detail often seen on French country furniture.
For a true country feel, you might choose a rectangular French country table with benches instead of dining chairs, and many tables include an extender leaf to be used for large family or group dinners.
Antique, vintage or hand-crafted French country sets can be a stunning design statement and set the tone for an entire home, and they are extremely expensive. But many lower-end or mass-produced French country dining tables, whose design has been inspired by those masterpieces, are available at budget-friendly prices.
