Types of Wood Often Used in Furniture:

Acacia:
A slow-growing tree with hard, dense wood, the acacia is common in dry, tropical regions. People around the world have used the tree for a variety of purposes and it is especially prized for its strong and durable wood which features a warm appearance. Particularly fragrant species of acacia are used for incense and perfume, and in some cultures, smoke from the acacia bark is thought to put the gods in a good mood. It is even said that the Bible describes the Ark of the Covenant being built from acacia wood and that this is the burning bush Moses encountered in the Book of Exodus. For these reasons, some consider the acacia the "tree of life." Other cultures believe this because the hardy tree offers shade and food within vast expanses of desert. Because of the spines seen on some species, other names for the tree are thorntrees, whistling thorns and wattles.

Asian Rubber Wood:
Found mainly in Thailand and some regions of Malaysia, rubber wood was traditionally grown as a source of latex. In the past, trees would be burned after they ceased to produce the sap-like latex extract at about 25-30 years old. Today, the wood is used for a variety of furniture items, toys and cutting boards.

Eucalyptus:
From a tree with a variety of uses, eucalyptus oil can be used for cleaning and is said to ward off insects. The leaves are a main food source for koalas while the fast-growing tropical hardwood is also ideal for creating durable furniture. Resistant to moisture, pieces made from eucalyptus provide long-lasting fashion, even when placed outside.

Mango Wood:
Mango wood products are made from the same trees that produce the popular tropical mango fruit. When a mango tree reaches 20 to 30 years of age, the fruits are no longer suitable for commercial use. These older trees are harvested and replaced with young trees in a process that sustains the mango forests, provides indefinite fruit and employment for the mango growers and ensures a continual supply of the very best wood for the craftsmen that produce mango wood products.

Teak Wood:
A tropical hardwood from the mint family, teak is renowned for its weather resistance, making it the perfect wood for outdoor furniture and boat decks. The wood's natural oils make it durable without applying oil or varnish. The inherent grain and texture of the wood also makes it a stylish option for any item.
