Ashley's Modern Approach to Classic Farmhouse Design - Arizona Daily Star
Ashley HomeStore recently debuted our 9th lifestyle brand, mane + mason, which boasts a modern approach to classic farmhouse design. We previewed our new brand at an event in New York in August, the first of its kind! All display items from the event were donated to the Salvation Army. The charming and cozy lifestyle that mane + mason evokes is family-friendly, versatile, and perfect for mixing and matching.
Celebrate everyday life with mane + mason and Ashley HomeStore with our comfy collection of bedroom, living, dining and office furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories. Let’s take a look at some below!
What is Farmhouse Style?
First, let’s define what a farmhouse design and style really entail. Classic farmhouse style is distinctly American and more popular than ever, thanks to fixer-upper shows. It’s a minimalist trend that embraces tradition, and it conjures up feelings of comfort, warmth, and coziness. Rooms with a classic farmhouse design make you want to stay in them for a long time and revel in the cozy country style. It’s all about mixing comfy furniture with items made from salvaged materials – everything old becomes new again. Furniture should be tactile, and accessories are minimal and not too delicate. The key is to keep it a little sophisticated without being cluttered. This style really focuses on renovation and upcycling.
Some common farmhouse style elements include:
- Vintage accessories
- Big, family-style furniture
- Reclaimed wood
- Galvanized steel
- Barnboard details
- Wide plank floors
- Wrought iron
Let’s get started with our inspiring picks to transform your space into a charming, cozy retreat that has classic farmhouse style!
This Savesto 5-Piece Sectional in charcoal gray embraces the farmhouse trend with crisp, clean lines and track arm styling.

It includes 5 pieces: 2 armless chairs, a left-arm facing corner chaise, right-arm facing corner chaise, and wedge. 3 toss pillows are also included. Made of solid and engineered wood, our Stownbranner Coffee Table brings relaxed farmhouse style to the forefront with its antiqued white finish, sturdy base, slightly flared legs, and a herringbone design.

It seats up to 6 and offers a rustic planked top and six convenient drawers, as well as a storage rack that holds up to 7 wine bottles.
