Edmonton, AB – April 12, 2012 – Mayor Stephen Mandel joined Ethan Allen retailers Barbara and Terry de Visser and other associates in celebrating the grand opening of the new 11,000-square-foot interactive Design Center at 10507 109th Street in Edmonton. At the March 10th ribbon-cutting ceremony, guests mingled, toured the new layout, and entered a raffle for the chance to win a gift basket that included a $500 Ethan Allen gift card.
“Edmonton is a city of entrepreneurs, and we thank Ethan Allen and the de Vissers for choosing the downtown area for their location,” said Mayor Mandel. “We appreciate their commitment to commercial growth in this area.”
“Our newest interior layout is very open, with great sightlines that allow you to see the diversity of our Lifestyles as soon as you walk in the door,” said Barbara de Visser. Each of the company’s 5 Signature Lifestyles—Elegance, Vintage, Modern, Explorer, and Romance—has its own inspiration lab where clients can view several projections of each Lifestyle via interactive flat-screen monitors. Clients can use the room-planning software to see layout options and large touchscreens to explore the wide range of customization options available for many products. “We are thrilled to introduce these new cutting-edge design tools to the Edmonton community as this new technology makes it easier than ever for our clients to collaborate with designers to create precisely the looks they want,” added de Visser.
“The new Design Center showcases products from our 5 Signature Lifestyles—and about 60% of them are entirely new designs,” said Ethan Allen Chairman, President and CEO Farooq Kathwari. “Our focus on providing not only diversity of style and good value but also complimentary design service and white-glove home delivery continues to be the hallmark of what sets us apart from other furniture retailers.” The company is dedicated to making comfortable, stylish living easily attainable for a wide range of clientele.
