These additions obviously seem more at home in rustic and farmhouse-style dining spaces, but they can also add an interesting twist to your modern dining room. If this little move away from the beaten path does not interest you, then you might want to consider a credenza or buffet covered in reclaimed wood to give the dining space a cozy, inviting aura.
