ELKRIDGE, Md. - Residential furniture manufacturer Ethan Allen has moved its Baltimore area Design Center from Catonsville to Gateway Overlook, an upscale shopping center in neighboring Elkridge, Maryland.
 
The nearly 10,000-square-foot center features Ethan Allen's new display concept, which showcases the furniture maker's new interactive design service, creating both a new location— and a new design experience.
 
Ethan Allen’s user-friendly Design Center layout brings its robust website to life. An open floor plan featuring design stations invites customers to work directly on projects with the company’s design professionals in a space outfitted with the latest technology.
The new Design Center opens its doors today and represents a new direction for the 83-year-old brand.
 
"This is an Ethan Allen some people may not recognize," says the company’s Chairman, President and CEO Farooq Kathwari. "The products are relaxed and relevant to today's lifestyles, the technology on the floor is state-of-the-art, and the Design Center itself is located where our clients live and play."
 
The Design Center displays hundreds of all-new designs in “shops” and inspirational room settings. Five design professionals from Catonsville will staff the new space and can help as little or as much as a client likes to facilitate the creative process and take the guesswork out of design. In-store and in-home consultations are complimentary, as always.
 
"Our new Design Center will be an inspiring destination in a great location,” says Judy Alto, District Design Manager for Ethan Allen. “Our team of design professionals is excited to introduce our new shopping concept to our Baltimore-area clients.” Contact Judy Alto at jalto@ethanalleninc.com for information about it.
