Parquet Wood & Metal Coffee Tables

Yesterday I mentioned that a coffee table is on the to-do list for my One Room Challenge family room project.

Design board for family room

Mark and I both are in agreement about going with something metal and wood. Like I do when I work with a client, I honed in on the look we were going for then looked for options high and low. Lately Mark and I have been smitten with the idea of a parquet top table so I researched and found a few tables in similar sizes, at various price points. They are actually all different species of wood which is something important to consider also. Are you a fan of this look too? If so, read on to check out some good options.


Parquet wood and metal coffee table options.


 Wayfair’s August Grove Coffee Table  

PINE | 49.5″x27.5″x18″

Some of the reviews said the color is a little more yellow/gold in color than the picture suggests. Pine is also soft so it dents easily, but for a rustic table like this I wouldn’t mind a bit of distressing. Also, I think the finish is kind of shiny and that wouldn’t be my first choice for a “reclaimed wood” look. But isn’t the top pretty?

Crate & Barrel’s Dixon Coffee Table

TEAK | 46″x23″x16.25″

This pattern is herringbone (yes, herringbone is considered parquet too). I like the color and finish. We almost pulled the trigger on this one but it wasn’t in stock, and I’m an instant gratification kind of girl. (Plus, maybe too much herringbone in one room with the marble fireplace surround???)

Pottery Barn’s Parquet Reclaimed Wood Rectangular Coffee Table

ELM | 54″x26″x17.75″

This one doesn’t have that really modern minimalist squared off base that the others feature, but I like the detail on this one, and the parquet top has that authentic, rustic, un-shiny “reclaimed” look that I love.

Wisteria’s Parquet Coffee Table (Rectangular)

MANGO | 53″x40″x17.5″

This one is huge – 40″ wide – so it’s not ideal for our family room, but I wanted to include it in this roundup because I love the finish on the parquet top – kind of a natural-looking weathered grey. Mango is a hard wood, and it also grows quickly so it’s one of the more sustainable and environmentally-friendly wood options for furniture, but it’s also considered mid-to-low end, so I’m not sure it’s price tag is justified.

Restoration Hardware’s Reclaimed Russian Oak Parquet Coffee Table

OAK | 49″x25.5″x15″

OF COURSE the most expensive one is my favorite – is it because it’s name suggests it is something really special? That’s marketing there at it’s finest, but I do love that raw, natural wood look. Something tells me this won’t be showing up in my RH Outlet store that I stalk weekly because it’s nearby.

Are you a fan of this style??

I would love your thoughts on whether I am going too pattern crazy in my neutral little room here. We’ve got greige walls, greige chairs and simple white curtains, but then there’s a bit of subtle pattern action between the rectangular marble tile surround, the herringbone tiled hearth, and the rug. Don’t take into consideration my orangey floors because someday when pigs fly those will be refinished 🙂

Okay design aficionados, help a girl out and express your opinions. You know you wanna!

Thanks my dears and hope you have a beautiful weekend ahead!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mommas out there!!

Hello, I have had the PB table for about 8 months now. While the table indicates it has a finish on it, I would argue that it has none. The wood easily chips off and takes on a dark shade from the slightest drop of water. I can't even dust it without the particles from the dusting wand getting stuck in all of the wood. I was wondering if anyone has seen this table in person and if you might have a suggestion on how to preserve the look of the wood while still protecting it. thanks!

Hi Fannon, I would go right over that tabletop with Minwax wipe-on poly. It will fill the cracks in a bit and prevent water marks. Do two or three coats, letting it dry thoroughly in between. I can't promise it will end the chipping but it should help a ton with the durability of the finish!!

I love the Pottery Barn one best Lisa. To me it seems the most authentic - and that top! Love! Also, it seems most similar to the one in the inspiration board (which by the way, I really like as well though you didn't talk about that one).

Can't wait to see what you go with!!

I love the PB one too Sheila! I have to go back and find the one on my inspiration board - I lost the source but I do like the base of that one too!

I was immediately drawn to the one from PB. The legs are stunning and eye catching.

I keep coming back to that one too Vicki! I just love the top.

We have one from wisteria. It's larger than the one above, more of a square and its HUGE but perfect for our room and I love it. ::) but I also love the other ones you mentioned. And nearly went with the CB one. Hope you have a happy Mother's Day!!!

Hope you had a great Mothers Day too Nancy!

Lol about your remark "when pigs fly..."! :) I like the CB table actually. Streamlined and good price point. Isn't teak pretty solid too?? I think the herringbone on the table top and fireplace hearth is fine. The repetition can be a balancing element in the room's design. The RH table is my next favorite, but whoa on the price point! But if you know you will likely not be replacing the table again, consider it an investment?!

Ahhhh that's just what I wanted to hear about the patterns in the room Carol. Thank you!
