Obsolete Venice Takes on Restoration Hardware

The LA Times has an interesting piece on the Venice based antiques store Obsolete filing suit against Restoration Hardware for “intentional misrepresentation, false advertising and unfair competition” stemming from “the chain store’s reproductions of vintage furnishings that had (been) collected and sold at Obsolete.”

Obsolete Venice

From the LATimes:

(Ray Azoulay’s) challenge in court has been complemented by the April 22 launch of restoration-reproduces.com. There, Azoulay shows photos of vintage Obsolete lighting — pieces that cost tens of thousands of dollars to procure in France and Italy, according to his lawsuit — alongside new Restoration Hardware reproductions. To connect the dots, Exhibits 1 and 2 of his lawsuit are store receipts for the Obsolete lights, purchased by a shopper who had the pieces shipped to a Corte Madera, Calif., address that, Azoulay’s suit said, turned out to be the corporate offices for Restoration Hardware.
