Restoration Hardware sends 17-pound catalog; hilarious photos ensue

But the heft of the package has prompted some scathing comments and cheeky photos, as well as a Tumblr site named Deforestation Hardware.
Restoration Hardware defended its bulk delivery, insisting the catalogs are "carbon neutral" since they only get mailed out once a year and as a single package.
However, it failed to apologize to postal carriers who still had to deliver them.
