This farmhouse coffee table tray comes in two finishes: wood and black or white and gold. The wood version lends to a modern farmhouse look, while the white and gold version gives glam farmhouse vibes.
Bring in a Lantern
It doesn’t get much more farmhouse than lanterns, and these modern shutter-style options are no exception. These would look excellent as a coffee table centerpiece.
