Good, Better, Best: Farm Tables

Nothing says "family" to me as much as family dinners do. I love gathering family and friends around the table to share a good meal. That's why I'm also partial to big farm tables. They allow room for a crowd and that extra relative who always shows up late for holiday dinners. So, before you plan your next big family shindig, consider one of these tables that I've rounded up at varying price points. See my favorites when you


Good: The Provence Extension Dining Table ($1,699) is handcrafted in France using tongue and groove joinery with wood pegging, and is made of solid oak from the Burgundy region. Finished with a honey-colored stain and a varnish, it's polished with beeswax, which adds a deep shine to the table. Extension leaves will ensure that this table is always ready for a few more folks — up to eight can sit comfortably at this chair when its leaves are used.

Better: The Centerbrook Farm Table ($2,900) can seat a crowd (10-12 people, to be exact), and offers a modern interpretation of the classic design. Featuring crisscrossing leg detail, this beautiful table is crafted from Appalachian black cherry in a choice of the five hand-applied wood finishes

Best: If you don't own property in Brooklyn, at least you can own a little piece of the borough with the Brooklyn Farm Table (custom orders start at $400 a linear foot) tables. Made in Brooklyn, NY, these gorgeous pieces are handcrafted by owner Ralph Gorham and his team. Buying one of these thoughtful, beautiful tables truly is a way to preserve a piece of historic Brooklyn, since the wood is salvaged from turn-of-the-century wood reclaimed from buildings on the Brooklyn waterfront and adjoining neighborhoods. The Brooklyn Farm Table is finished with nontoxic, spill-resistant Tung oil.

i love these tables, too! i have a Bjorna from IKEA and it has an extra leaf in it - it isn't as narrow as some farm tables but it seats 8-10 i think.
