  • SEVEN NEW WOOD COLORS OFFERED

    by Diana Thorman | Jan 04, 2016

    All in Grade B

     We are pleased to announce seven new wood colors to our offering.  They include:

     Four stains on Rift Cut White Oak: Fawn, Tuxedo, Mocha, and Clear.

    Two stains on Quarter Cut Walnut: Verdant and Clear.

    One stain on Oak: Brindle.

     The trends in wood are to make them look as natural as possible and celebrate the veneer itself.  We have achieved this by using as little stain as possible, or a clear coat.  The stains developed are in the warmer (brown) tones, from light to dark.  A low gloss finish was used on all the new colors.

     These stains are offered in our standard finish as well as Hand Applied.

     Images and where available can be found under Standard / Wood / then select the wood species.
