fiVO Design furniture is built using the finest furniture grade manufactured sheet materials. These materials are products of nature, and variations in color, grain, and texture are to be expected. Some materials have unique grain characteristics that may cause the final finish to look darker or lighter in some areas. Therefore, while your furniture will have the same basic appearance as our samples and photos, they will be absolutely unique and perhaps noticeably different. Engineered wood products provide long term consistent color and grain patterns, however slight variations are expected and acceptable in man-made and natural products. Light reflecting from different angles, proximity to light source, differences in color of light source and difference in surrounding surfaces can cause the illusion of variations in color and shading. These differences are to be expected and are naturally occurring. You can, however, anticipate the consistency of quality and craftsmanship in all of our furniture.
