BEWARE. Much of their stuff is now made in CHINA. Even though the leather might be from Italy or the wood from the USA. They are assembled in CHINA. I bought a Lancaster sofa from them. It was a nightmare experience. The first one we received bottomed out and made a huge thump when you sat on it. They called a furniture insurance guy to come out and assess the damage. He told me that in LA alone he had looked at 3 other RH couches in the last week, all which frames were so poorly assembled that he could only suggest they replace it. So they did and the new one seems fine so far, but what the heck!?! They clearly have a quality problem. 4 couches in 1 week in only a few zip codes?!?! I find it so irresponsible to charge the prices they are charging for stuff that is made so poorly. Their stuff USED to be made in the USA. Most of it is not anymore and based on my conversations with the 7 customer service people I had to talk to in order to resolve my issue...they know it too.

This place is so crazy overpriced. You will find comparable stuff and WAY better deals at the Pasadena swap meet. I bought a decorative Army piece for $2 at the Fairfax flea market. This place was charging $20 for the exact same thing. They also charge about 7 to 12 times more for globes than I have found for BETTER globes at the Pasadena swap meet.

You can get nearly identical bell jars at Bargain Fair on Fairfax & Beverly for about 12 bucks. And you can get that globe for cheaper on the Sundance site.

They were wood and were painted pink. :) Still don't know at what store they were purchased. :(
