Buying Farmhouse Furniture
Fabrics: You should be looking for neutral fabrics in the furniture pieces. Anything that is a light color such as neutral, beige, or cream. The list of fabric materials to look for are either linen, burlap, monks cloth, and rug warp.
Woods: The wood tones you should be looking for are either whitewashed wood, gray-washed wood, and medium tonewoods. These wood tones can be mixed for example whitewashed on tables tops, medium tones on legs. Don’t forget about other pieces like bookcases or wardrobes.
Colors: Whites and bold accents of blacks are a must for your home. Neutrals should make up most of the environment but adding other colors to incorrupt as statements are sage green, leather brown, and charcoal gray
Shapes: The furniture in this style is mostly straight lines with the exception of some tabletops and chair arms giving us bold curves.
Characteristics: Modern farmhouse stands out from other styles because of its new or crisp feel furniture has. Unlike vintage, you can tell these items are not second hand but that’s what gives the space a clean feel.
