Yeah, I did too. However, in my experience, two toned furniture like that does not age well and the contrast will no longer look good after a couple of years.
There is enough contrast though. The camera phone pics don't really show it but the trim is a somewhat neutral grain. The vaneer was a mahogany vaneer so there are long dark lines in the grain that go up and down and give it some depth and contrast in color.
