Acacia wood, also commonly called wattle, is a dense and heavy hardwood that comes from acacia trees and shrubs in the Acacia genus. There are over 1,350 species, most of which are native to Australia.
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.
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.
