The grand opening of the Ethan Allen Design Center in Paducah, Kentucky was celebrated on May 22, 2010. Chairman, President and CEO Farooq Kathwari joined Ethan Allen retailers and owners Jim and Annette Moss for a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as a tour of the brand new Design Center.

"This Design Center is really the model for our continued expansion both in the United States and internationally," said Mr. Kathwari. "It combines professional design service, custom products in both wood and upholstery, and our cutting-edge technology all into a smaller footprint. In addition we are now opening Design Centers to reflect the size of each market, from 30,000 square feet in Manhattan to 6,000 square feet in Paducah."

The Design Center in Paducah incorporates a smaller footprint of 6,000 square feet and is one of the first Ethan Allen retail locations in the country to incorporate Ethan Allen's on-site touch screen technology. This interactive technology, combined with smaller display and inventory requirements and reduced operating costs, opens up new expansion opportunities for Ethan Allen worldwide.

Mr. Kathwari noted, "Ethan Allen has been a design-focused brand for nearly 80 years. From one great piece to a whole room, our furniture is made to order for each client and approximately 70% of it is made right here in our U.S. workshops. We are looking forward to expanding our Design Centers both with entrepreneurs and with our company operated retail network in the United States and abroad."

Ethan Allen plans to open new Design Centers in Estero, Florida; Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania; and several locations in China by the end of 2010.

Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. is a leading interior design company and manufacturer and retailer of quality home furnishings. The company offers free interior design service to its clients and sells a full range of furniture and decorative accessories through ethanallen.com and a network of approximately 284 Design Centers in the U.S. and abroad.

Approximately seventy percent of its products are made in its United States plants.
