A coffee table is a statement piece that has the ability to tie together a living space, and a wood coffee table is a perfect statement to make in your home.

At Woodcraft, we believe raw wood furniture like a wood coffee table can add beauty and elegance to any room. We have over 30 years of experience crafting the best pieces of furniture nationally and have perfected each item.

We take pride in each piece of furniture we construct and know what to look for when it comes to fine furniture pieces, including the all-important coffee table.

Your coffee table is the unsung hero of your living room, and we want to help you find the perfect one for your home. Consider these factors when looking for the right wood coffee table for your home:


Coffee tables can achieve different looks depending on your home’s interior design. Our products range from the most simplistic of styles to the most stylish for any room. In addition, different layouts call for various styles, which require different designs.

Traditional Design

The traditional design aesthetic uses colour and pattern through elements like wallpaper and furniture pieces. The design elements are classic and can work with antique fixtures, making a wood coffee table fit perfectly.

Our Leslie Coffee Table can work in traditionally designed homes depending on the type of wood you prefer. Its contemporary steel base with a wood finish top will complete your living room’s traditional design.

Mid-Century Modern Design

In the last decade, we’ve seen a significant rise in mid-century modern design influences from architects and interior designers. A few key features of this popular design trend are sleek lines using organic and geometric shapes mixed with non-traditional items.

If looking to add a coffee table to your new design space, our mid-century coffee table is perfect as the juxtaposition of its tiny peg legs and broad table work perfectly in this design. It’s elegant and simple, all while making a statement.


Using the correct wood for its true purpose is essential when looking for the perfect coffee table. We here at Woodcraft pride ourselves in constructing fine wood coffee tables using the most durable types of wood:

  • Maple
  • Cherry
  • Oak
  • Pine

We are committed to manufacturing the modern wood coffee table of your dreams. Our woodcrafters bring wood from Canadian trees to your living room and will customize your piece to any size. As a result, we can create a functional and elegant piece of furniture that fits into your space perfectly.


When treated with care, your coffee table can last decades. Reclaimed wood is a prime example of old wood that has a long lifespan.

Reclaimed wood is repurposed wood from factories, barns, old ships etc. What makes it have a long life is that it, simply put, has already experienced all the elements. While new lumber can also have a long life, reclaimed wood has already been tested and has undergone the proper treatment to continue its lifespan.

You want your new coffee table to be your last table. So with all the right elements and design, you will find your perfect table. Find out today how we at Woodcraft can create your ideal coffee table for any space with longevity, design and construction in mind.
