Parota wood furniture is becoming trendier as designers find ways to incorporate its unique coloring and grain patterns into modern designs. It has been typically used for rustic parota furniture, however, the bold colors perfectly compliment minimalistic concepts. Below we show some examples of modern parota wooden furniture to inspire your own home design.
Modern Parota Wood Furniture
Parota wood furniture can be prepared using single slabs or cut wood, both of which show parota’s bold grain patterns. The choice will largely depend on what size parota furniture you want, and what parota wood furniture is available for sale in your area.
Parota primarily grows in Mexico and Central America. In these humid environments, the parota tree reaches relatively large sizes meaning you can generally find larger natural slabs than other woods, such as oak. However, with parota’s rise in popularity in recent years, larger slabs are becoming harder to find and prices have increased.

Is Parota Wood Good for Furniture?
Parota is a fast-growing tree, making the density lighter than other exotic woods. This makes it a great wood for creating large parota furniture.
Like most wood types, parota must be well dried and properly treated to avoid splitting and termites. Many parota wood suppliers do not prepare the wood properly, causing warping, bowing, or bug infestation later on. For these reasons, it is important to choose your parota furniture from a reputable provider.
Parota is slightly softer than some other exotic and tropical hardwoods, so for high-use areas such as a kitchen bench, you might opt for a harder or more durable finishing, such as polyethylene.
The characteristics of Parota are similar to redwood, so look for parota furniture with high-quality carpentry as screws don’t hold as well as glue.

All outdoor wood furniture needs regular maintenance and protection as sunlight damages wood over time.
