ICYMI! Last month marked the introduction of Ethan Allen | Disney to China, where we have more than 70 Design Centers and the launch party was just too fun not to share!

Disney fans and special guests got together on the lawn of the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel for food, drink, fireworks, and facetime with none other than Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Some of our favorite pieces from the collection were set up for everyone to see, touch, and enjoy, and the incredibly talented Derrick Warren, a craftsman from our workshop in Maiden, NC, mesmerized the crowd by building a Bravo chair completely on site!

Today we honor a folk hero—and the heroes we work with every day.

Ethan Allen was a soldier and a statesman who led the charge to capture Fort Ticonderoga from the British during the American Revolution. Because he’s our namesake, we pause on June 23 (Ethan Allen Day in Vermont) to remember the contributions this patriot made to our nation and our democracy.

Ethan Allen Day is also an opportunity to give a shout-out to the hundreds of hardworking people who keep our company humming. From the skilled craftsmen and women in Vermont and North Carolina who create our furniture, to the design consultants all over the world who help our customers make beautiful homes, we’d be nowhere without them! Meet some of them here … and more at #WeAreEthanAllen.
