Farmhouse Dining Room

Fairfield County, CT

Our Connecticut dining room has finally come together in the most beautiful way! Many of you may remember we scored these wingback chairs at an estate sale for $7! They were hideous before – covered in a bright green fabric, and we had them reupholstered in this cream linen material. Thomas then sanded down the legs of the chairs and stained them a light honey color. I am so happy with the end result. It really is incredible what a little stain and fabric can do to a chair.

Farmhouse Dining Room

Vintage Rug

This vintage rug is what ultimately pulled everything together and made the space feel warm and cozy. It’s from Linda’s Barn – an incredible vintage rug store with literally hundreds of rugs in all shapes and sizes! It was so hard to narrow down a rug (I legit wanted each and every one), but Linda was so helpful and I went with this neutral one. Although each rug is one of a kind, she has several similar to this – so definitely browse the site.

Dining Table

Many of you may remember that Thomas built our dining table. I did a DIY post about it here. It’s such a special piece, and the thick white oak planks are so unique. I’ve linked a few similar options below like this table and this one.

Dining Chairs

The 2 end chairs are wingback chairs from an estate sale that we had reupholstered, and the 4 wooden chairs are “wishbone” chairs from Wisteria, which sadly now is closed. I’ve linked several similar options below though! In terms of reupholstering, I’ve received several questions about the process. This article is really informative. We used Prince Upholstery in Connecticut. They picked up both of our chairs, brought fabric books for us to choose from, and also dropped the chairs off when they were done. Make sure to be specific if you want a cushion remade to be thicker, want it down filled or partial down filled, etc. I suggest writing down your requests and giving it to them so it’s very clear!


These Visual Comfort chandeliers are one of my favorite pieces in our entire home. They are so classic and well made. They really make a statement and elevate the entire room. The previous owners had a straw/rattan set of chandeliers which were really fun, but they made the home feel too rustic/casual for our personal preference. The brass chandeliers really add that elegance I wanted in the room.

    Hey Kat, love the pics of the new dining room. The room gives off a really nice vibe. I also have a light rug underneath my dining table but do have concerns about wine/food stains on a light rug…do you have any concerns ? I currently have six ‘Philip Starck’ design dining room chairs in black and am considering adding two gold coloured versions for the heads of the table. How would you describe this particular design choice ? Modern ? Contemporary ? Do you think this trend will last ?

      Thank you! I bought a product called Wine Away for any stains: https://rstyle.me/+UFY637PFC-7UxA2_DFH0gw

      I bet your dining room is gorgeous! It’s hard to give design advice when I haven’t seen the space and since I’m not an expert by any means, I definitely recommend reaching out to a local interior designer, or using virtual services like The Havenly for design expertise!

    How much was it to reupholster the chairs? I have a couple chairs that I’d love to have redone.

      Hi Michelle, this article is really helpful in finding out reupholstery costs! https://kimsupholstery.com/upholstery/cost-to-reupholster-a-chair/ It really varies based on the fabric you choose and how much your local person charges! Our chairs were about $800 each to reupholster which included the fabric.

    Beautiful! I’ve been looking for wishbone chairs for my own dining room, but so far I’ve only tried out the Crate and Barrel ones, and I didn’t find them comfortable. Are yours comfortable?
