Wood is a natural material that is known for significant variation in color and pattern. Wood should not be expected to “match” samples, photographs or existing countertops. Iroko wood is golden when newly fabricated and darkens to brown over time. European Walnut and European Elm have strong variation in color. All woods will have some variation in color and pattern, and most woods change in color over time.
