Certainly an ebony and boxwood chess board will look color coordinated and matched. You may want to introduce some color just for looks, since your pieces are neutral tones -- but that is going to be a matter of personal taste. Any wooden chess board is going to look just fine with your new wooden pieces.
The important part is getting a chess board that is the right SIZE as well as the colors you prefer. If you get a board where the squares are too small, the pieces will get knocked over during play which is very distracting. There is an easy way to assure getting a board that is the right size for your pieces. Measure the diameter of the base of the king and add 1/2 inch. If your king measures 1.25 inch across the base, you should get a board with AT LEAST 1.75 inch squares.
