WASHINGTONSPACES.COM/Washington Spaces / UPDATE: DOES NOT PROMOTE THEFT FROM ARTISTS!
UPDATE: WASHINGTONSPACES.COM SUPPORTS ARTISTS AND THEIR WORK IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY! We are a group of artists swindled by Dallas-based Design Legacy (AKA Legacy Trading Company, Kelly O'Neal's Interior Design, Design Legacy Components, among other aliases) who strive to inform independent artists, vendors and retailers nationwide about this company's long history of unethical, immoral and criminal activities. Recently, unaware of this information, a blog on washingtonspaces.com featured stolen designs and the Virginia store that is peddling them. When contacted about this ongoing scam (along with internet sites documenting complaints about O'Neal's continuing con man activity), washingtonspaces.com made the decision to remove Design Legacy from the post, their right as editors. We applaud this decision, as it shows that there are still companies out there who are willing to do the right thing. It also demonstrates that our redoubled efforts to protect artists from being ripped off by this retail scourge are slowly, but surely, working. We had and have no other complaint with washingtonspaces.com and believe that, in every other way, it is a professional, entertaining, interesting site to visit. Thank you for reading this update!
