“This post-agrarian look is the defining style of the current era — dominating renovations, new construction and subdivisions in communities with … interiors that have open concept floor plans, wide plank wood floors, plenty of shiplap, and kitchens with apron sinks and floating shelves made of reclaimed wood. — Ronda Kaysen, “The Modern Farmhouse Is Today’s McMansion. And It’s Here to Stay.” The New York Times, July 7, 2023.
