Dear Everyone at AT, I was just wondering what's your take on "La-Z-Boy/Todd Oldham" Line. I know "La-z-Boy" is not usually your kind of taste, but Todd Oldham design seems pretty interesting. Thanks, Kuma

Dear Kuma, You are right that it's not exactly OUR thing, and we thought that even more when we walked past the shop last Sunday. With all due respect for Todd Oldham, who we think has done a lot of good work, this line is just not for us. It's retro, but clunky and the colors don't have enough richness or zip. That said, there are a few pieces that are inventive and could be useful, but the overall styling seems hokey and we don't see exactly what problem this whole line is going to solve. Or perhaps it's the La-Z-Boy company behind it all. We still have trouble separating the brand name from the geriatric recliners of yore. Anyone else??
