Acacia wood is incredibly durable and hard. It is often compared to teak or American Walnut due to its colouring and strength. It is long lasting, water resistant and has wonderful grain designs.Furniture made from Acacia wood will blend perfectly into any lifestyle or dÃ©cor. Acacia's durability means it isn't scratched easily, too, while its water-resistant properties means it won't warp readily and is highly resistant to fungus. Like many types of wood, acacia is naturally antibacterial, and is therefore safe to use for preparing or serving food.
