Mad Men Mania

So CB2 just announced the Draper sofa and I'm digging the Mad Men reference, but I have a problem -- I can't help but think a lot of CB2's designs look like Ikea. Now let me say that I own some CB2 items and it may be a case of Ikea copying CB2 rather than the other way around, but .... still.

Deep down I've got an old soul and I'll take a tufted Victorian sofa that smells like moth balls over a new, modular sofa any day but I would hate to pay $800 for a sofa from CB2 and have someone come over and think it was a $300 Ikea piece. I'd rather just jazz up an Ikea sofa with some great throw pillows and call it a day. That's just me though. What do you think? Am I crazy or do a lot of CB2's designs look a lil like Ikea?
