What a stupid lawsuit. Resto did what many artists do, get inspired and create. However there are actually real ethical questions when it comes to Restoration Hardware. As they claim to "salvage" materials for their finished products, the packaging that these items are shipped in (like shipping crates made from rainforest plywood and mountains of styrofoam) are appallingly wasteful for a company that markets itself as "green". Made in China and disposed of in the landfill of the USA. I doubt anyone cares.
