Good read. Amazing that an organization with such noble intentions could be reduced to ripping off the very designers that helped establish it's identity. It would've been nice to see a small in-house design team develop some less pricey original pieces to sell along side the high-dollar showroom draws. One of DWR's missed opportunities was not effectively using the "glamour effect" of the design icons by not having anything to offer those who couldn't quite justify an unreasonable expenditure. Tools for Living? Not exactly an original idea but ok, who's the genius who decided to sell the accessories out of an entirely different store down the block? Would being in close proximity to an Eames lounge chair make me any more likely to dish out $25 and take home a bit of high design in the form of a can opener? Maybe.

Thanks. Interesting article.

As the owner of an original Sussex cabinet, I have to say I'm disgusted with the former knock-off mentality of DWR: They'll knock off the little guys, but not the big ones. I'm glad they're no longer doing it.
