The Parquetry media console from home design retailer West Elm is handcrafted and intricately detailed with varying wood grain designs. Arranged to form a geometric pattern, different types of veneers cover the furniture piece's solid ash frame and legs.

The media console's facade is clad in ash veneer pieces that are stained in a gradient of hues. Resembling chevron-shaped parquet flooring, this furniture piece marries modern minimalism with traditional ornamentation.

West Elm's Parquetry media console features pre-stained ash veneer planks that are artfully arranged and finished in a clear glaze. The piece houses three drawers and two spacious cabinets that provide a vast amount of storage for electronics and other accessories. Moreover, the console features wood dowel handles that are finished with antique metal cuffs.
