More Than Just Inspiration?
I opened up the latest Pottery Barn Catalogue today and couldn't help but notice that several of their new items were eerily similar to designs from other companies - all of which I have previously blogged about. I know that designers are often inspired by others and some would say that no design is truly original but I can't help but think that some of these designs are more like direct copies rather than loose interpretations. What do you think? Am I being crazy?
