All of our woodwork is made of 100% natural wood from renewable forests (see more on Lacava "green" initiative).  Differences in color, grain, appearance and texture are inherent in all natural woodwork, and should be expected. Variances in these qualities are not deemed manufacturing defects, and will not be accepted as valid reasons to return or exchange any LACAVA wood pieces. Wood samples provided by LACAVA are intended to represent the average appearance of each wood finish, and should not be viewed as exact representations of every individual piece of woodwork.
