About Ethan Allen, History and Headquarters Information

History

Ethan Allen was founded in the year 1932. The company has been active for almost 87 years now. The name of the company was after the name of the Vermont Revolutionary leader named. Ethan Allen. The founders of the company were Theodore Baumritter and Nathan S Ancell. The company was mainly started as a housewares manufacturer in 1932, then bought a bankrupt furniture factory in the Beecher Falls, Vermont, USA, in the year 1936. The firm adopted the name 'Ethan Allen' for its early-American furniture introduced in the year 1939. In the year 1972, Ethan Allen moved its headquarters from New York City to Danbury, Connecticut, USA. The Ethan Allen International Headquarters Complex includes the Ethan Allen Hotel, corporate headquarters offices, and an interior design centre as well.

The firm was sold in the year 1980 to Interco for an amount of $150 million, with Ancell remaining as an advisor. The company was sold again in the year 1989 to a management group headed by current Chairman, President, and CEO Farooq Kathwari. Then in the year 1993, the company became a limited public company in order to help raise almost $156.9 million through the sale of common stock. In the year 2004, Ethan Allen closed its Boonville, New York, USA, plant, laying off almost 250 employees. It also closed its Bridgewater, Virginia, USA, plant, also laying off 250 employees too. As of the year 2008, the company announced plans to close a dozen Design Centers too. The decision was made to consolidate the Design Centers with others that were currently serving the same market area as well. More than almost seventy per cent of its cherry, maple, and alder wood pieces are crafted in the United States. Towards the end of the year 2008, Ethan Allen began selling their products online as well. In the year 2009, the company laid off almost 238 workers from Beecher Falls, Vermont, USA, along with 93 workers remained.

    I purchased several pieces of furniture from the San Marcos Store, February 2019. When the loveseat Arcata Model 202112, Springdown-Firm Cushions, arrived, approximately May 31,2019,
    I sat on the furniture and immediately sank into the frame, creating a large 2-3 inch gap between the back cushion and the bottom cushion. The delivery man sat down and did the same. We made note of the poor construction on the delivery sheet and I contacted our wonderful designer. Arrangements were made to ship us 2 new cushions…same as we ordered. These arrived and were the same. We then went with both cushions to the store. When the Springbdown-Firm sample in the store was laid on the cushion to our seat the sample was much smaller. We ask if the manager was in. Our designer finally got him to come out and talk to us. I showed him the difference in the size of the cushions and ask if the design engineers had taken into consideration the difference in cushion sizes when setting the specifications for our particular cushion. He had no answer, seemed very uninterested in my question and suggested we try the All Foam cushion. (he has been with EA for over 20 years). Two All Foam cushions were sent to our home. They are terrible, miserable etc. I noted when I took the back cushion and turned it without the cushion resting on the arm of the sofa, that the back cushion dropped down on to the bottom cushion and eliminated most of the gap. This sofa is terribly designed and does not represent Ethan Allen quality. We stopped payment with American Express. We have been going back and forth and the loveseat has not been picked up as of Aug. 10,2019.

    I’m writing this note on the Corporations Web-site in hopes that someone with authority will take care of this matter…I’m almost to the point of renting a truck and personally delivering to the store.
