Ethan Allen Rolls Out New Store Concept
Ethan Allen (NYSE: ETH) opened a new store today that showcases the retailer’s new interactive design concept.
The nearly 10,000-square-foot showroom in Elkridge, Md., brings the retailer’s website to life with its open floor plan featuring design stations throughout.
"This is an Ethan Allen some people may not recognize," said Farooq Kathwari, chairman, president and CEO. “The products are relaxed and relevant to today's lifestyles, the technology on the floor is state-of-the-art, and the Design Center itself is located where our clients live and play."
The Design Center displays hundreds of all-new designs in “shops” and inspirational room settings. Five design professionals from the Catonsville, Md., store staff the new space and can help as little or as much as a client likes to facilitate the creative process and take the guesswork out of design.
"Our new Design Center will be an inspiring destination in a great location,” said Judy Alto, district design manager for Ethan Allen. “Our team of design professionals is excited to introduce our new shopping concept to our Baltimore-area clients.”
