Ethan Allen Sofas

Want to know if your used Ethan Allen furniture is the real deal? When it comes to used Ethan Allen pieces like vintage Ethan Allen sofas, a company stamp can usually be found on the back or bottom. Ethan Allen bedroom sets and case pieces, however, are more likely to feature a company stamp in one of the drawers, so be sure to crack those if needed. As Ethan Allen did go through multiple incarnations before becoming the name brand we know today, don’t be surprised if your suspected vintage Ethan Allen furniture bears a stamp other than Ethan Allen. Names that are synonymous with Ethan Allen include Baumritter Corporation, Green Mountain Holding Corporations, and Interco. (A BRIEF) HISTORY OF ETHAN ALLEN Founded in 1932 by Theodore Baumritter and Nathan Ancell, Ethan Allen began as a housewares retailer. While the Great Depression provided a less than welcoming climate for the duo, they managed to keep the business chugging by adapting to their consumer’s tastes. Upon realizing that buyers with a pinched penny preferred substantial furniture over small housewares, they bought a furniture factory to quickly assemble the goods. So what inspired them to go traditional? Well, for one, their original furniture factory was located in Beecher Falls, Vermont, and the duo fell hard for their history-laden surrounds. Inspired, Baumritter and Ancell felt compelled to emulate the area’s colonial tones in their furniture collections using a repeated roster of cherry, maple, and oak. Americans, who up until then had been inundated with Deco, found the Early American reboot to be fresh and unexpected. And although designers like Kittinger would soon follow, Ethan Allen can be rightfully credited as one of the trailblazers of the movement. True to what would become their signature, in 1938, Ethan Allen released its first collection—a 28-piece set of Early American furniture. While American traditionalism gained steam in the 1960s and 70s, by the 80s it was clear that demand for the Martha Washington look was cooling. Rather than resting on their laurels, however, Ethan Allen responded with a shake-up. In 1985 they released the American Dimensions collection, which featured pastel-light woods and geometric accents, and with the country craze cresting, they also served forth the rustic Country Crossings collection. The 90s brought even further changes, with 1991 marking the release of the Ethan Allen Legacy collection, which borrowed from Italian architecture, and the American Impressions collection, which was composed of straight-lined furniture that footnoted both Shaker and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Arts and Crafts styles. Intrigued? Browse Chairish and you’ll find used Ethan Allen furniture from all of these collections and more. Today, Ethan Allen is keeping the ball rolling with classic, cool-lined furniture that exudes true American spirit. But vintage Ethan Allen furniture? Well, that will always hold our heart.

I was polite and nice and just said that you have a “deceptive, lying” employee working for you. She wanted to let me know that this is not how Ethan Allen does business. Unfortunately, it is exactly how Ethan Allen does business, because a business is only as good as their employees. Her lack of ethics, transparency, and honesty directly reflect on Ethan Allen. Bottom line – Ethan Allen does not care about their customers. As my family continues to grow, we look forward to buying more furniture. Needless to say, Ethan Allen will not be in our purview.

Design Dilemma Need sofa advice! Ethan Allen or Pottery Barn? jah1108January 3, 2016 Hello, I am looking at purchasing either an Ethan Allen Spring Down sofa or a Pottery Barn sofa which has a foam core wrapped in down. This sofa will get heavy use and the concerns that I would like to avoid are 1) saggy looking cushions that I have to fluff, especially the back cushions, and 2) feathers leaking. I know these problems can be avoided if the quality of foam is good and down-proof ticking is done well. So not sure which company has better quality. I think it may be Ethan Allen and I know they have 3 year warranty on cushions, but the PB sofa is extremely comfortable in the showroom! The Ethan Allen spring down feels more firm. Does anyone have feedback on sofas from EA or PB on either of these 2 issues?? Thanks! Justine Email Comment57Bookmark14Like3

In the mid-1960s, Ethan Allen possessed a whopping 1,600-piece line of Early American furniture. Among those 1,600 pieces was the Circa 1776 line, a collection of colonial furniture rendered in show-stopping maple. The pieces, which sacrificed no amount of function, harked back to the era of the founding patriots, with spindle back Windsor chairs, Chippendale-style dressers, canopy beds, and drop-leaf tables taking center stage. Featuring furniture for virtually every room of the house, the Circa 1776 Collection was indicative not only of Ethan Allen’s fearless rejection of Mid-Century trends, but their ability to create a world of furniture rather than just a collection. No, the pieces from this collection aren’t for the faint of heart. The used Ethan Allen furniture from this collection is unabashedly traditional, but if nostalgia is your note, you can’t do better than these Americana-inspired pieces.

I hate to admit that my husband was correct in telling me to stay away from Ethan Allen, but he was totally correct. A large area rug that I paid top dollar for has faded horribly, despite the fact that it’s in a room that’s not sunny AND all the windows are covered with custom Ethan Allen treatments. I’m sick that I have to toss this rug. What a waste of money. My mother was loyal to Ethan Allen. The quality now is AWFUL!!!
