Ethan Allen Debuts an Interactive Design Experience in DC

ROCKVILLE, Md., May 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The greater D.C. area has a new home for classic American design. Ethan Allen has returned to its original Rockville Pike address—just a third of a mile down the road from its most recent location—at the swank new Galvan at Twinbrook, an upscale apartment community adjacent to the Twinbrook Metro.

The new Design Center features an innovative display concept that showcases the company’s new interactive design service. This isn’t just a new location—it’s 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 and large touchscreens invites clients to work directly on projects with the company’s design professionals in a space outfitted with the latest technology.

The new Design Center opened 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. Eight experienced design professionals staff the space and the company is looking to hire two additional qualified design candidates to round out its staff. To facilitate the creative process and take the guesswork out of design, the design team can help as little or as much as a client likes. In-store and in-home consultations are complimentary, as always.

"Our new Design Center is located right in the heart of the action on Rockville Pike,” says Ethan Allen District Design Manager Judy Alto. “Its modern architecture and inviting layout are sure to appeal to residents of Galvan at Twinbrook and neighboring communities.”

The new Design Center is located at 1800 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852. Hours are Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Monday, Tuesday, and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Wednesday and Thursday 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.; and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. For more information, please contact Judy Alto at
