I have purchased several Storkcraft items for a room set. Can I expect the colors of all the pieces to match exactly?
Not necessarily. There are several variables involved: country of manufacture, type of wood available/used, and painting process. Depending on the country of manufacture, or even wood availability in the same country at different times, the same type of wood may not be used for every manufacturing run of an item. The same painting process may be used on two different types of woods, yet the wood may take the paint differently. Even within one tree, certain sections may react slightly differently to the painting process. This is just the nature of wood. So, while the color will always be very close, there may be slight variations between items, or even within different parts of the same item. Part of the beauty and uniqueness of Storkcraft furniture are these natural variations that indicate real wood fabrication.
