Material Variance:  We make our products and furniture from a variety natural materials utilizing various manufacturing methods. There is a degree of material variance in most materials or processes. Materials like wood and stone have a more obvious material variance than others. Knots, bark inclusions, varying woodgrains and color across a board as well as grain patterns in stone slabs all have their degree of material variance. Other materials and processes like sand casting iron have their own variance in texture and color. Material Variance is considered a natural variation of process and materials and are not considered a manufacturing defect. We work at great lengths to manage and curate these variances however working with natural materials no matter how man made they seem will always have a degree of variance and so your product may vary slightly from the images shown on our site.
