No, I'm assuming that Stickley Mission is "honest" but their derivative collections are not. Also I'm talking the new production items, not antiques.

I have to admit I had never heard about it until this thread.

i don't think any of my parent's stuff is less than 20 years old. I like the old stuff, generally.

I enjoy all of the old stickley stuff, but mostly from a craftsmanship perspective.

Thank you for taking a big crap on the floor. I guess it's a good thing the rug hasn't been purchased yet.

What do I need to ask a rug shop about a vintage Beni Ourain to sound like I know what I'm talking about?

Please. This four-foot-ten Chinaman needs to become a Beni Ourain expert very quickly. Or at least, pass off as one.

You decided to go for the shag after all, I see.

I can only repeat my earlier advice. You're not going to fool anyone. Even if you actually have an idea of what you're looking at, the dealer knows a lot more than you. If you pretend to be an expert, he will spot you a mile off. And you won't be able to ask the necessary stupid questions.

Oddly enough, your best bet is probably to wear your ignorance proudly. Tell the dealer you know nothing about it and get him to explain everything. Twice. Go to another dealer and repeat. If you do this a few times, you probably still won't be an expert but you may have an idea of who is lying to you more.

You might want to keep this in mind.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but anyone have a recommendation for a place or brand to buy bed frames in socal? Looking for something modern. Preferably around $1k thanks!

What I don't understand is how people who care so much about whether their suits are canvassed or glued-together would be okay with a Pottery Barn copy of a tribal rug.
