Acacia wood is considered special because of its strong, sturdy, and effortlessly stunning appearance. It’s remained a top choice for furniture and is a great choice if you’re looking for good quality hardwood pieces that will last for generations.
Here’s what to know about acacia wood furniture, from what sets it apart to what’s made it a mainstay of interior design for so many years.
Acacia’s ubiquity in the home can be explained by a few key characteristics. Aside from being beautiful, acacia is naturally water-resistant and antimicrobial. While many wood furniture varieties need to be protected from coming into contact with liquids and may warp or form fungus if exposed, acacia can handle regular moisture contact—even without being treated in any special way.
Keep in mind that while acacia wood furniture is water-resistant, it’s not waterproof. To get the full value out of your acacia pieces you’ll want to be sure to keep them away from any standing water. While you won’t have to be concerned about fungal growth, long-term moisture exposure could cause acacia furniture to warp or swell, which would limit longevity and value.
In terms of appearance, acacia is naturally smooth and it has a distinctive, pronounced, and uneven grain that makes wood furniture look so special and unique. Acacia wood colors are deep, warm browns, rich auburn hues, with flecks of bronze interspersed. It holds on to stain well making it equally ideal if you’re looking for an even darker piece. No two pieces of acacia are alike, so if you want more of a homogenous look for your furniture (or flooring), it may be tough to achieve with acacia.
You don’t become the preferred building material of the British Royal Navy without possessing some serious durability. Compared to other types of wood that are commonly used in furniture, acacia beats out popular choices like oak, hickory, and bamboo, with a density that measures closer to marble.
