In a move that positions itself as a major presence in the greater Chicago market, Ethan Allen Inc. has opened two new stores in the last two months. Located at 2960 Audrey Avenue in Naperville and 2350 Fountain Square Drive in Lombard, the stores feature Ethan Allen's new store design and the latest products in furniture, fabrics and decorative accessories. "Ethan Allen has established itself as a leader in style and decorating" explains Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO of Ethan Allen Inc. "From the contemporary to the traditional, and everything in between, we are committed to providing our clients with the best in style, value, and service. Our new stores epitomize our efforts." Ethan Allen's 3,000 Design Consultants help to make the decorating process simple and fun, whether the client needs help with the selection of a single item or in decorating an entire house. The tools in the store are designed to help the consumer envision their own interiors. Using an online room planning program, clients can see their furniture arrangement before making a purchase. Yet another program allows clients to view their fabric of choice on any sofa, chair or ottoman. Selecting from a wide range of fabrics, the program makes the process of ordering custom upholstery easy. Clients are able to visualize the final product prior to ordering. As always, designer service is complimentary to Ethan Allen customers. Mr. Kathwari further stated: "Ethan Allen offers something unique - custom designer service that covers all areas of the home, with a focus on style and solutions. We are very excited to be the one-stop home furnishings shopping destination in the Chicago metropolitan area."
