Just heard about Ted's death Ted was one of my first vendors in the furniture business. It's true: he was talented and a true visionary. He perfected the western-lodge look that now flourishes in USA. Many of the designs from this style of furniture can be attributed to Ted and his creativity. He wasn't trained as a designer but was a born natural at it. When he left the business the lights dimmed. My favorite Ted saying was: "If doesn't sell, I've owned my last one." RIP Ted!!!
