About Design House Products

Most of Design House products are hand-finished. We maintain master color panels and monitor product during production. Due to texture differences between items, temperature/humidity changes and slight technique differences between our skilled finishers, up to a 10% variation in finishes can occur. Therefore, we cannot guarantee exact matches on specific items between orders. Finish chips are provided as a close approximation of finish.
