1. Try an end table that's a tree trunk.

Never underestimate the impact of furniture made from natural materials in a rustic setting. Pick an accent table made from a tree trunk like this beautiful block from Lulu & Georgia to add an instant focal point to your living room or bedroom in true farmhouse style. Whether as a plant stand, an extra seat or just sitting on its own, the piece will truly stand the test of time.

2. Accentuate with iron accents.

A round table with a reclaimed wood top and a distressed metal frame like this one we found on Wayfair adds just the right amount of rustic charm without appearing too old-fashioned. The round shape makes it a versatile pick that will fit into any space, whether you need a spot for a plant, lamp, or a place to rest a cocktail in between sips.

3. Pick out a pedestal side table.

Nothing says farmhouse like a pedestal table — no matter the size. A side table composed of rich-toned wood with a traditional pedestal base looks more like a timeworn piece than a brand new piece of furniture. This modern twist on the look from Perigold updates the style in all the right ways to create a nice accent piece in a living room and beyond.

Few things make a piece of furniture more timeless and unique than spindled legs. And a side table constructed of solid wood with spindle-style turned legs is no exception. This farmhouse end table from Birch Lane is an excellent way to infuse a hint of french country flair into any room. The size works perfectly as a nightstand too, where you have plenty of space to stack your favorite books and a stylish reading lamp.
