Let me take a few moments to discuss our 3 operating segments. Sales for the upholstery segment increased 9.5% for the quarter, and the operating margin for the period was 6.5% compared with 5.1% in the last year's first quarter.Our brand platform marketing initiative, featuring Brooke Shields, continues to gain traction, and we believe it is driving a well-qualified consumer to our stores and our dealers, one who has become more knowledgeable about the breadth of our offering. We've seen the success of the marketing initiative with stationary furniture growing at a faster rate than our traditional motion business and consumers stepping up to buy more full room groups rather than one piece at a time.
