Ethan Allen announces collaboration with Amazon

Ethan Allen Design Studio will be established on Amazon.com

DANBURY, Conn. — Officials from Ethan Allen Interiors have announced that the company is collaborating with Amazon to combine “the strength of two iconic brands.”

According to Farooq Kathwari, chairman and CEO, the collaboration with Amazon is the second major collaboration in Ethan Allen’s 85-year history. The company launched the Ethan Allen | Disney Collection in 2016.

"We are pleased to combine Ethan Allen quality and our vertical integration, from manufacturing and logistics to interior design service and our 200 design centers in North America, together with the vast customer base of Amazon,” Kathwari said.

An Ethan Allen Design Studio will be established on Amazon.com that will allow Ethan Allen to offer its high-quality furniture and decorative home accessories to Amazon shoppers. The products will be sold by Ethan Allen and shipped by its 'white-glove' Premier In-Home Delivery operations. The Ethan Allen Design Studio on Amazon is expected to launch later this summer.

Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. is a leading interior design company and manufacturer and retailer of quality home furnishings. The company offers complimentary interior design service to its clients and sells a full range of furniture products and decorative accessories through ethanallen.com and a network of approximately 300 Design Centers in the United States and abroad.

Ethan Allen owns and operates nine manufacturing facilities, including six manufacturing plants and one sawmill in the United States plus, one plant, each in Mexico and Honduras. Approximately seventy five percent of its products are made in its North American plants.

As the Upholstery/Style Editor for Furniture/Today, I spend my work hours studying the sloping curves of sofa frames, the intricacies of fabric and the nail head trim and button accents that function as jewelry on a piece of upholstery. I research the companies that bring these things together for retailers, and ultimately consumers, and interview industry leaders about their business strategies and where they think furniture is heading in the future. And when traveling, I provide a sneak peek at what I'm seeing, whether at international markets or in High Point or Las Vegas.

I look forward to sharing what I see and I hope you'll feel free to do the same. Email me at chodnett@furnituretoday.com or follow me on Twitter @CynthiaWHodnett.
