Ethan Allen Interiors Inc., a manufacturer and retailer of home furnishings, has opened Design Centers in Montreal and Brussels.
Located in the Les Cours Mont-Royal shopping center, the nearly 10,000-square-foot Design Center in Montreal is at 998 Boulevard de Maisonneuve Ouest. The company has launched its bilingual eCommerce website, ethanallen.ca, to coincide with the opening.
"As an UNESCO City of Design, Montreal made perfect sense for the expansion of a design-focused brand such as ours," said Ethan Allen Chairman, President and CEO Farooq Kathwari. "We chose the Montreal location because it's in the center of the city, where our clients shop, and because we believe that the style-seekers there will relate well to our luxury made affordable approach to interior design."
Ethan Allen will also make its entry into the European market with a Design Center at Place Du Grand Sablon 37, Brussels, opening on December 7th. The company has said that that design center will serve as a springboard for further expansion in Europe. In 2013, the company will also launch a European website.
"We chose Brussels for our European debut because it is truly in the center of Europe and our grand, three-story showplace on beautiful, historic Sablon/Zavel Square because it is at the center of the Brussels design community," said Kathwari. "We are excited to bring the Ethan Allen experience to Europe and are proud to be able to offer our friends in Brussels incredible value without compromising on style, quality, or the legendary design service that has made us a leading style and design authority for 80 years," added Kathwari.
