New Ethan Allen collection draws on global themes

November 8, 2017 GMT

DANBURY — Ethan Allen’s latest collection draws inspiration from all over the world as well as a variety of time periods from the Ming Dynasty to the present.

Passport, an assortment of home furnishings and accents, is drawn from influences such as India’s hand-knotted rugs and campaign-style dressers, and Ming Dynasty-inspired display cabinets and occasional tables.

“We created Passport as a celebration of cultural influences from around the world. It’s designed to ‘wow’ while also being warm, authentic, and livable,” Farooq Kathwari, president, chairman and CEO, Ethan Allen Interiors, said in a release.

New offerings include: the Astor, a shelter-framed sofa; the Malone, a deep-seated English chair; the Corin, a curvy dining table; and the Callum home office line that is inspired by the British campaign style.

Passport also includes a selection of home bar offerings, bedroom designs, and accessories such as pillows, artwork inspired by global motifs, and lighting and decorative accents.

“Our designers focused on every detail, bringing in exquisite textures, fabrics, and patterns. We hope it brings home the feeling of having been somewhere wonderful,” Kathwari said.

Complimentary design assistance is available by consultants at Ethan Allen Design Centers.

Ethan Allen, celebrating its 85th anniversary this year, is based in Danbury and has about 300 stores throughout the U.S.

Last month, Ethan Allen reported net sales of $181.3 million for its first fiscal quarter.
