What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. A rustic table. A smaller farm table can work well as a sofa table or library table in a living room. Smaller versions inspired by farm tables make good coffee tables in a farmhouse living room as well.
Weathered furniture looks appropriate in both cottage-style homes and tailored and sophisticated spaces. And if you’d like to layer area rugs over those durable floor options, consider sisal, sea grass or jute, which contribute warmth and texture while being durable and stain resistant.
5. The spaces in this renovated Atlanta farmhouse come up frequently in our top photos of 2013. This wonderfully bright living room with a cloth sofa just begs for a do-nothing day.

Ever so discreetly, timeworn furniture hints at history. I wonder if this primitive table came out of Grandpa's barn or served in Great-Aunt Martha's kitchen during the Depression. In reality, it may have fallen off the back of a truck last week, or been a fantastic garage sale find. Whatever its origin, the dents and scratches make me curious.
