In this case we worked with the client to design a functional vanity cabinet that would go with an existing sink cabinet. While matching something pre-existing is nearly impossible due to variations in wood color from region and species, and variations in the way a finish will affect that color (not to mention time/sun exposure/ natural fading)- we are able to build custom furniture that blends well with the pre-existing furniture in the home.

The only way to have a perfect 100% match is to have us build every piece from the same lumber or material source, using the same finishes on everything.

In this case we measured proportions, reveals, and bevels of the existing piece, and we even took into account grain pattern, sap wood location, and the size of different items that would be put into the cabinet. This is truly a custom piece that required a lot of careful design and collaboration. The cabinet has found its home in the Back Bay.
