Size Finally Matters

Restoration Hardware, I love you, I do and so do a lot of people. But man oh man did you get a lot, and I mean A LOT of flack for going so large.  There's even a website called WTF, Restoration Hardware?  Which is why I was so happy to open my new Elle Decor to find this ad on one of the first pages!

In case you can't read the fine print: "OK. We heard you. One size just doesn't fit all.  So, for those who choose to live in smaller yet no less stylish environs, we've scaled down our entire collection to offer sizes that work beautifully in more intimate spaces.  Same design aesthetic.  Same quality.  Same craftsmanship.  Only smaller.  So whether you're looking for sofas, dining tables, dressers or more, they're all here to outfit your pied-a-terre, city loft or coastal bungalow.  Because size matters.  And good design will always prevail."

So this is what I have to say to you, Restoration Hardware:  Thank you! Thank you for listening to your discouraged yet loyal fans and for making things right.  Thank you for admitting to your mistake and realizing that good design will prevail in any size!  Genius ad!
