Restoration Hardware

Is that a sofa or a centipede? 

 

Did you get the new Restoration Hardware catalogue?  Over 600 pages and weighing 3 lbs, it’s been the talk of the business world and the internet:   Is it green or not?  How can they afford to put out something like this in our bad economy?  Are they making money or losing money?

I can’t remember another catalogue generating this much buzz, much of which is negative.  Is it just jealous rumblings from other companies who aren’t doing as well?   Restoration Hardware certainly gives the impression that all is well.   Newly remodeled stores are going up around the nation.   The new shops are dark and atmospheric, more resembling a gentleman’s club than a furniture store.

People either love the new RH or hate it.  There’s not much middle ground. 

We tackle all this and more on this week’s Skirted Roundtable.  And yes, no, we three don’t agree on the topic at hand!!
