Not. In fact, the whole company seems to have changed. One original partner was booted and they have gone more to smallwares stuff. A lot of it is really cool, though. It hasn't gone downhill as much as refocused. We considered that bench seriously for our old place where we had a perfect spot for it. In our current places it wouldn't make sense. It is the most fun piece of furniture to be on I have ever experienced. Really awesome.
