Sarah Goslee might want to chime in, but using odfWeave and appropriate LibreOffice templates, you can generate beautifully formatted tables, possibly in the style you wish, in LibreOffice, as well as add R figures.
The R2wd package (which has a proprietary component) will also generate tables directly in Word (on windows machines) and their default theme is pretty attractive to me. I'm pretty sure even that is customizable. You can also put R plots directly into Word that way as well.
