There are few pieces in home decor with as lasting or as universal an appeal as the farmhouse table. The staple piece of the eponymous and increasingly ubiquitous farmhouse style, these massive unfinished tables made of fine or reclaimed wood are visually striking in any room you care to place them in. So it's not surprising that the farmhouse trend, and specifically the table, has found its way out of our dining rooms and into a number of other areas, bringing a bit of classic, rustic style to just about everywhere -- from restaurants to tech companies. But every now and again even rustic can use a reboot, which is why some of the top companies in home decor have been hard at work bringing new life and new style to our favorite classic tables.

CB2 Paradigm Dining Table
For the most part, while the legs of the new generation of farmhouse tables are subject to change, the tops remain large pieces of wood. Often they remain unfinished, the better to retain the natural beauty which has made farmhouse tables such a widespread favorite. But there are some tables that look to bring a new perspective to the top of the table as well as the bottom. The Paradigm Dining Table from CB2 is one such example. Borrowing inspiration from the modern French kitchen, this table includes no wood at all, instead using bent metal legs in a burnished brass finish to support a top made of Carrara marble. With a single nod to farmhouse tradition, the marble is polished smooth but left unfinished in its natural state.Continue to 11 of 12 below.
