Ashley Furniture Complaint - Poor Ethics and Misguided Consumers
Ashley furniture is a company run by a man with a large head who is only concerned with maintaining the big box retail standard he has created. So it is assumed that he also may not have even the slightest ounce of morals. This is correct. This company exploits overseas factory to have them knock-off former suppliers designs. All the while, they advertise in publications for their consumers to watch out for poor quality copy cats.
They are the ones to watch out for if you have any moral abligations to the code of ethics put in place by quality, copyright and origin of design.
"Using our internationally acclaimed in-house design team, we create the look without paying expensive design fees." This statement on Ashley Furnitures Home Page should actually be read as:
"Using our Chinese Copy Team, we re-create the popular look without having to employ designers to create them."
Please don't be decieved by their shiny showroom as you have maybe read some of the other reviews, if you want quality then this is not the place to spend your money. Please place it in the hand of the original designer who is being exploited by their malpractice. I know firshand, I am one of the exploited.
