Ethan Allen’s transformation from American furniture icon to international home fashion brand continues with grand openings of flagship Design Centers in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Bucharest, Romania.

Of the company’s nearly 300 Design Centers, nearly a third of them are now located outside the United States. “Fashion is an international language,” said Ethan Allen CEO Farooq Kathwari. “Our design influences come from all over the world, and we are pleased to share them all over the world.”

Housed in a renovated villa, Ethan Allen’s new Jeddah Design Center features marble floors, elaborate ironwork, and Palladian windows. His Royal Highness Prince Mansour Bin Muqrin Bin Abdulaziz, a partner in the new Design Center, extended the invitations to the private grand opening gala, describing the Design Center as "Jeddah's new, exclusive home fashion destination."

In Bucharest, Ethan Allen has partnered with Romanian style-setter Diana Sucu and her husband, entrepreneur Dan Sucu, to create a spectacular showcase of style. Clad in crystal, granite, and glass, the new Bucharest Design Center is a glittering new shopping destination in the Romanian capital.

“Wherever we go,” said Mr. Kathwari, “we come not as visitors but as neighbors, opening our doors to what we hope will become many lifelong friends.”

Jeddah is Ethan Allen's fifth location in the Middle East. Bucharest is the company's third location in Europe. The company also recently opened Design Centers in Amman, Jordan, and Seoul, South Korea. Coming soon are three new locations in China.
