They're moving away from piping and toward unfinished top lines. Look at the independence collection. No piping on any of the models. Me no like. Thanks! Only walnut I have is a Rutledge; I was thinking about picking up Strands from Bloomingdale's during this sale, but I'm on the fence since I already have a Strand in brown and want one in shell. The Lexingtons are burgundy; I MTO'd them with a Dainite sole before they were offering that as a stock option.
