August 25, 2009,
DANBURY, Conn. — Ethan Allen is opening design center showrooms this month in Raleigh, N.C., and Dubai.
The manufacturer and retailer of upscale home furnishings said it is continuing to pursue other new locations in several markets in the coming months in the United States and abroad, including stores in Mount Pleasant, S.C., in Las Vegas as previously announced, and in Estero, Fla.
The latest stores are new-concept retail footprints, with the 10,000-square-foot design center in Raleigh featuring a selection of the company's products, inspirational room vignettes and design tools and services including tools from its Web site.
The 12,000-square-foot showroom in Dubai in the new Dubai Mall is inspired by the success of Ethan Allen's design center that opened in Manhattan last summer and is the flagship store for the Middle East, the company said.
