The Client accepts that hand finishes, such as wood stains and paints, may vary slightly to the samples. Samples on display are for guidance only and exact matches cannot be guaranteed. The final colour achieved will depend on the natural grain, density and colour of each type of wood and of each individual length of that wood.
