1) French Country Farm Table
A classic staple in French country homes, the farm table is perfectly casual for everyday but can be dressed-up for formal occasions. A 7ft. farm table seats eight on regular nights but when guests arrive add the leaves to seat 12.

3) French Country Pedestal Dining Table
The country French pedestal dining table is a French classic. Perfect for seating a family of 4-5 on a regular basis, with the ability to extend with two center leaves to seat 8-10. The compactness of a pedestal base gives more flexibility for diners to gather without the impediment of table legs.
