M. Farooq Kathwari
Chairman, President and CEO
A strong American brand with global reach. A design authority with a modern attitude. A high-quality manufacturer. An innovative retailer. A destination for the one-stop shopper. A full-service Design Center staffed by design professionals who make house calls.
We are all of these things, but, most important, at Ethan Allen we are people who love our homes. And we believe passionately that everyone should love theirs. Homes are powerful. Home is the blueprint for your life. Our work is that simple. And that complex. The well-designed home never goes out of fashion, but its definition is always changing. Every day, we challenge ourselves to create exceptional, relevant, and stylish furniture and accessories. We customize. We travel the world for design inspiration. In my job I’m constantly on the road. I know just how hard it is to find time to create a home. That’s why I’m so proud of our complimentary professional design service. With all the demands of modern life, busy people really need the help of a trusted design pro in making a comfortable home.
I also insist that Ethan Allen provides value, not just with our unique service, but also with free local delivery (which is rarer than it should be in this world); creative financing; and a business structure that gives us remarkable control over costs. We do it all: design, manufacture, market, distribute, deliver, and install. We set the standard for the attainable and well-designed home. And that’s all we want. It’s that simple and that complex.
