George Smith Style?

Increasingly as of late I have been noticing traditional Howard designs described as "George Smith Style" and have recieved blank looks from people when I correct them. I presume this is due to a few facts: The original Howard and Sons ceased to be almost a century ago so are no longer in living memory. The current Howard chairs are a fairly small company who do not advertise heavily so unless you know about them already you are unlikely to stumble upon them.

George Smith on the other hand are a large company with good marketing and shops with heavy footfall passing by, they have done very well in changing Howard style to George Smith style, do they deserve the Howard crown? Well I will leave that to you to decide.
