If we had to declare a style queen, it would be Mother Nature. From seasonal colors to natural textures, she knows her stuff. And nowhere is her decorating prowess more prominent than in the soft swooping lines and gentle color variations of a fine wood grain.
Wood furniture allows you to bring natural beauty into your home. And as the centerpiece of your living room, a wood coffee table sets the tone for your space. One amazing facet of a natural wood table is that it matches any home decor style — you can find wood coffee tables in glam, boho, rustic, and mid-century modern designs. (Like we said, Mama Nature is a style queen.)
Here’s a look at our favorite wood coffee tables in every style. By the end of this list, we hope you can crown a coffee table to rule your living room style.
11 wood coffee table styles for all seasons
Whether your style is straight out of Mad Men or ripped from the pages of a Jane Austen novel, this list has a wood coffee table to match your living space or inspire your next decorating project.
1. Coffee table with shelf in grey driftwood
This industrial chic coffee table makes us want to move into a converted warehouse and dream up new uses for its trendy loft space. (Today it’s an office, tomorrow a guest room!)
But even if your home doesn’t feature polished concrete floors and exposed brick walls, this piece can put an industrial spin on your home decor. With a metal base and solid wood top, this coffee table will add a modern edge to your rustic farmhouse decor or match the clean lines in your contemporary home.
2. Churchill round coffee table in dark brown and black
Mid-century modern meets minimalism in this simple, stylish table. The hairpin legs and dark wood top are signatures of mid-mod style, so you might expect to encounter this table in Don Draper’s living room. But the simple design makes it a great fit for Scandi and boho style homes as well. Hang some surfboard wall decor, add a few blue and green throw pillows, and this piece can even pass for modern coastal design.
3. Rectangular coffee table in dark cherry and antique white
The beauty of a wood coffee table (other than the fine wood grain) is that it’s a durable piece of furniture. There are wood coffee tables that have been passed down from one generation to the next. If you weren’t lucky enough to inherit your great, great grandmother’s antique mahogany table, you can start the tradition with this transitional-style table.
Transitional style is the little black dress of home decor. It’s not about chasing trends — it’s about creating a look that’s at once elegant and timeless. This table (and the matching end tables) are built to stand the test of time.
4. Corliss coffee table in Americano and rose brass
If you thought white marble and crystal chandeliers were the only way to add glam to your living space, you need to meet our friend, the Corliss coffee table. This table is glam grown up.
The wood grain on the dark, engineered wood tabletop meets in an elegant starburst pattern. It sits atop an electroplated, rose gold metal base that invites you to go out and buy every rose gold accessory you’ve been eyeing. We’re picturing a rose gold mirror, candle holders, and matching glassware. (So long, coffee table. Hello, cocktail table!) Add a velvet sectional, and your living room will be dripping with Art Deco style.
5. Gano coffee table with hairpin legs in natural and matte black
The sleek Gano coffee table features an acacia wood top. Like teak, acacia is a tropical hardwood, but the natural wood grain of acacia is more striking than the subtle grain of teak — in fact, it’s more striking than just about any wood grain because of its distinct color patterns.
This table allows the inherent beauty of acacia to come through with a natural finish and a live edge. The iron, hairpin legs make it a perfect match for an industrial, minimalist, or boho-style home.
6. Monrovia rectangular coffee table in cinnamon
We think this architectural table would look just as at home in one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses as it would in your living room. The design features a solid wood frame and glass top. The sharp angles make it a good match for modern, minimalist, or mid-century decor. Meanwhile, the unique exposed glass edge ensures that this table will become the centerpiece of your room.
7. Rectangular lift top coffee table in walnut
This unassuming, goes-with-everything coffee table has a sneaky little secret: a lift top that pops up to reveal something beautiful — storage space. (It makes us misty eyed just thinking about it.) There’s plenty of room for you to hide your favorite quilts for the colder months or store essential office equipment for days when you’re working from the couch.
The lower storage shelf provides more space where you can keep your coffee table books or magazines. And if you’re someone who tries to squeeze a little extra storage into every nook and cranny in your house (we’re talking entryway storage, bedroom storage, and definitely living room storage), then you can add a few baskets to that lower shelf to store even more.
8. Roy coffee table with casters in rustic brown
Even if you reclaimed wood from a dilapidated old gable barn, you still couldn’t make a better farmhouse coffee table than this Roy coffee table. We’re transported to a cozy country home every time we look at the rich, brown tabletop and traditional cart wheels (not to be confused with cartwheels, which we imagine you’ll be doing when you find your perfect wood coffee table).
With its black metal frame and exposed rivets, this piece would also fit in an industrial loft and help the space feel a bit more relaxed. Since this table features four functional wheels, it’ll be easy to move it back and forth between that country home and industrial loft … or just wheel it out of the way for some living room yoga.
9. Sir Rawlinson coffee table in deep merlot and clear
If your style is less country house and more country manor, then the ornate metal scrollwork, beveled wood, and glass top on this traditional style coffee table are ready to add aristocratic flair to your home.
The design will look romantic next to the leather upholstery on your favorite armchair, and the two open shelves will provide plenty of space for your most elegant coffee table books. Add matching side tables and an accent table to complete the look.
10. Storage coffee table with 3 baskets in weathered burnish brown
This solid wood storage coffee table is made to last a lifetime. Constructed from mahogany, it features refined details like beveled wood edges, turned table legs, felt-lined dovetail drawers, and antique bronze knobs.
The timeless, transitional style ensures it will look elegant in your living room for years to come. And with plenty of storage options, this piece can grow with you — from small space to sprawling mansion. The three Kubu rattan baskets are collapsible, so you can use them all or remove them to create an open shelf.
11. Wooden square coffee table in natural sheesham
Being square has never been so cool. This solid wood table is made from natural sheesham. Like acacia wood, sheesham has a dramatic natural wood grain, and this piece embraces the beauty of that natural color variation.
The low profile is ideal for small spaces, and the square shape fits perfectly with smaller sectionals. We can imagine this block-style design completing your rustic, boho, or Asian zen interior decor.
Mother knows best
Mother Nature is a master of variety, and wood furniture reflects that. It’s available in a variety of styles — transitional, rustic, coastal, contemporary, the list goes on — and a variety of woods. Different woods can create dramatically different looks for your furniture. Mango wood is different from acacia wood, which is different from teak, which is different from mahogany. Each one brings its own beautiful, natural variation.
To get an idea of the natural wood grain in your future furniture, choose a few coffee tables you love, then go see them in person. It’s a shopping experience that’ll surround you with natural beauty.
