A few years ago, WGBH television, producers of the popular PBS series Antiques Roadshow entered into a licensing agreement with Pulaski Furniture to create a line of reproductions and pieces “inspired by” some of the gems found on the show. Disclosure time: I was working in the WGBH division that struck this deal at that time, although I had nothing to do with it, and I have no current insider information. It’s interesting for me to revisit this line of furniture. It looks to me that they’ve narrowed their offerings down to a few signature pieces. I’m not sure they scream “Antiques Roadshow!”. I do like the bed, however.
What do you think? Do these evoke the “treasure in the attic” feel of Antiques Roadshow? One thing I can say, is that a portion of the proceeds of the sales really do funnel back to help develop new public television programming.
