Kitchen Color Trends: Acacia and Matte Black

Add a touch of modern beauty to your pantry, drawer, or countertop

by Brad

Over the past few years, the customer demand for more neutral, muted colors has increased. Fortunately, The Container Store's incredible buying team has been on top of this trend every step of the way, regularly introducing beautiful new storage and organization products to satisfy this demand. The newest additions to our ever-growing kitchen category include an attractive assortment of acacia wood and matte black products. Check out our latest offerings below!

Deep Acacia Silverware Tray

A sophisticated design that blends natural beauty with practical details, the Deep Acacia Silverware Tray keeps contents organized for easy access. Four compartments are sized for flatware, and the two larger storage compartments can hold serving spoons, utensils or spatulas. Crafted completely of acacia wood, this durable but lightweight organizer gives drawers a custom look whether used in a kitchen, office or vanity.

Acacia Expandable Drawer Organizers

Our new Expandable Acacia Silverware (left) and Utensil Trays can be adjusted to fit your drawer size and storage needs. The Utensil Tray features three large fixed compartments and two slide-out compartments, so there's room for servingware, whisks, spatulas and other cooking essentials. The Silverware Tray has five compartments sized for flatware and cutlery, as well as two larger slide-out compartments for serving utensils, large spoons, or spatulas.

Stackable Acacia Drawer Organizers

For those needing a more modular drawer organization solution, the Stackable Acacia Drawer Organizers can be mixed and matched easily. They're also stackable (hence the name), so you can use multiples inside deeper drawers or display them on a desk or countertop. The possibilities are endless! And, just like the trays above, they're crafted entirely from beautiful, lightweight acacia wood.

Anchor Hocking Montana Glass Jars with Acacia Lids

Our Montana Glass Canisters are perfect see-through containers for just about anything. The wide openings also make them ideal for scooping out cups of flour, sugar or other staples. The acacia wood lids feature silicone seals for airtight storage, and the glass bases are dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.

Black Tosca Basket with Wooden Handles

Our Black Tosca Baskets with Wooden Handles are a beautiful addition to any kitchen or pantry. Constructed of flat, textured wire, these baskets hold snacks, fruits, dry goods and other pantry staples in style. The wood handles add a touch of sophistication and make it a breeze to pull them off a shelf or arrange throughout a pantry.

1 gal. Glass Slant Jar with Matte Black Lid

Our matte black update to the classic cookie jar is so versatile, you might find a thousand uses--and places--for it. On a kitchen countertop or pantry shelf, it's a natural for showing off cookies and candy, or for keeping coffee pods and other everyday items within reach. The clear base lets you view the contents instantly, and the silicone gasket is part of the jar's mouth so everything stays fresh.

Urban Stacking Wire Baskets

Made of metal and finished with a matte black coating, our Urban Stacking Wire Baskets feature an open wire design and integrated handles. Their flat base ensures they will sit securely on pantry shelves, and their special interior edge allows for worry-free stacking. With a range of sizes, these wire baskets can tackle any storage task.

Artisan Glass Canisters with Black Lids

Naturally beautiful, these canisters feature a graceful curve in the neck. The airtight, silicone-sealed lids are hewn from hardwood and the raised lip allows the canisters to be stacked securely. Available in a variety of sizes ranging from 16 to 33 ounces, they're perfect for showcasing supplies like nuts and snacks.
