I understand where you're coming from, but have you checked out their website and looked at their new stuff? I talked to a friend of mine who's a 27 y.o. recent graduate of what is supposedly a pretty good interior design school (UCO), and I asked her what she thought of their stuff before I bought stock last summer. She looked at their website not expecting to see much that she would recommend to clients, but she was very surprised at what she found. She was under the impression that it was all older, darker wood, traditional style furniture, but she was surprised by some of their more modern, Ethan Allen/IKEA-ish stuff. In particular their "Zen" line of furniture is cool, and it's listed on the site as being among their best sellers. It's unfortunate that the merchandise transition isn't happening as quickly as we stockholders would like right now, but I think that longer term, it's going to work out nicely. Probably not a 10-bagger, but I think it's got some potential for nice returns, especially since it's so low right now. I'm even considering buying some more while it's so low...
