    This is a bit of a stretch, especially since Kem Weber, a REAL designer did the studio furniture, and now they are doing an "art disco" version.

    You'd think they'd do the official Kem Weber Collection with the Airline chair.

    If Thomasville can have great success with their line of Ernest Hemingway inspired furniture, I'd think there would be a market for a "Disney Inspired" line.
