Restoration Hardware - So Disappointing
IPlease indulge my rant. 'm in quite the bind and can't help hate Restoration HARDWARE. I put emphasis on the hardware, b/c it's in their name, so they should probably try to pretend they care.
Once upon a time, Restoration Hardware used to be a go to for american made goods. They've completely changed their business model and have most of their furniture built in China now and shipped here. I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, there hasn't been a decline in price passed to the customer. Their items are still very expensive.....and they're made in China.
But I digress. I am currently renovating my kitchen. It is very important to me that as much of my kitchen be made in the USA as possible. I went to Restoration HARDWARE and after being assured the hardware was still made in the USA I ordered the Aubrey knobs and pulls.
My cabinets are being installed on Wednesday......I opened the pulls yesterday and there's a sticker on each pull that says MADE IN TAIWAN. I can't even tell you how mad this is making me. I'm not thrilled that the salesperson didn't know something and pretended she did, but the thing that bothers me the most is that Restoration Hardware is making yet another thing overseas that does not need to be made there. I also think most consumers, if asked, would prefer to buy american made products, so I see this as a disinterest in consumer preference.
So, what to do now?
