Erica gives you an Ethan Allen designer’s-eye view into the making of a look as livable as it is great looking. See below for a transcript of this video.
My name is Erica, and I’m here today to talk about Vintage Express. I wanted to tell you who this has been designed for and why. It’s a great space to kind of hang out and really live, and use your space wisely. In the Vintage living room set, we have the Cheshire sofa, which is new; we have the Adam chair in a plaid; and we have the Mercer tufted chair in a red solid fabric that does have a herringbone texture to it. The Adam chair is a take after a vintage dishtowel and it’s very interesting, it brings the room together, gives it a little pop of color. The rug is very comfortable, for all of your guests. The coffee table has some storage there, you can put baskets, you can put books, any kind of storage that you might need that you don’t have in the rest of your home. The end tables have more storage, which is great, and the lamps have a basket texture, because I’m sure you’ll have other baskets in your house. There’s something in these rooms for everyone. You can see using the dining room table for homework, your laptop, or even a dinner party. The William server is stylish as well as practical. The styling here in the room is very, very casual and livable; so you can go outside in your yard and just pick berries like I did, pick branches, use grass—all of the natural elements help keep the room looking very livable, very casual, but yet very stylish. The overall look and style of the Vintage set was created to look like a cottage. We’ve used wide plank floors, shutters, gliding French doors on a track—these doors allow you to break free from the conventional furniture arrangement. For Vintage Express, we’ve taken all the guesswork out for you. It’s very stylish, comfortable, and livable.
