American style literally came to life in our new New York City Flagship Design Center on Broadway last Tuesday night, where hundreds of people joined us to celebrate the artisanal spirit of Ethan Allen at an event hosted by Domino magazine.
The champagne sparkled, the designs dazzled, and authentic craftsmanship shined as four of our artisans gave live demonstrations of the techniques they use to handcraft our styles.

STAR OF THE SEAM
Seamstress Shirley Parker from our North Carolina workshop showed her hand at upcycling as she crafted a sample of the event’s unique gift bags using fabric scraps.
Artisan Charlie Rockwell from our Vermont workshop showed his Midas touch as he hand-gilded complimentary coasters for guests to take home.
Plus, Domino magazine editors shared some of their design faves…
…while Ethan Allen CEO Farooq Kathwari and Domino CEO Nathan Coyle enjoyed the craft and creativity of the evening; and chatting up guests.
