Brock, you can order samples of the wood from Axiom for 25 bucks. I believe, as it was with the custom vinyl samples, you can apply the amount of money spent on samples towards the speaker.
Call Axiom and see if the can do any type of matching finish for your decor. It's worth a shot. I feel if you are going to spend some serious money on speakers you will keep, do what you can to get the finish you like.
It's like getting a great deal on a car because of a nasty color that nobody wants. It may feel good to save a thousand dollars or so at the time, but the car is something you're going to look at everyday and think, "Yuck."
