Modern farmhouse represents the intersection of classic farmhouse style with the bolder lines and geometric elements that personify modern style. Farmhouse style has always been about reclaimed wood, exposed brick, raw textures, salvaged or repurposed decorative elements, and of course, bold, rustic iron touches wherever they fit in!
To kick it up a notch from the classic Americana version of farmhouse style, all you need to do is introduce a few key elements that will interject a hint of modern into the farmhouse personality, and voila! you have Modern Farmhouse. For instance, large, over-sized furniture pieces that still have the worn, comfy vibe of a reclaimed farmhouse classic, but that are framed in the bold, angular lines of modern style, like our Plush Square Tufted Chair, or our Cheyenne Teak Globe Table Lamp that marries raw natural wood with an oversized modern sphere.
Or you could take a farmhouse staple, like a reclaimed wood side table, and give it a bold, new shape like our Mali Reclaimed Wood Side Table, which marries the raw textures of reclaimed wood with a modern, origami inspired shape. These types of simple changes will add a more dramatic touch to your decor that will transform your basic Farmhouse style to Modern Farmhouse.
