The colour, texture and composition of fabric or wood may vary from the products displayed in store or on this website due to many dye variations and natural timber variations. Due to the many variations in monitors and browsers, color samples may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. Reclaimed wood is unique, and no two products are the same. The wood will display holes, nail marks, scuffing and are part of the intrinsic beauty of the product. Solid timber products have natural markings, cracks and color variations due to the nature of the product; these are the characteristics of a natural product and not defects or signs of damage.
