NATICK, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 12, 2003--Today, Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. (NYSE:ETH) continued the latest phase of its reinvention with the opening of a new 20,000-square-foot store at 321 Speen Street at the Cloverleaf Mall. The store's contemporary new exterior will serve as a billboard to the Natick community and the large front display windows will give customers a peek at the best Ethan Allen has to offer.

Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO of Ethan Allen, and members of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce were on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony during the grand opening event. Festivities included a raffle for two $500 store gift certificates as well as Ethan Allen products. A portion of the store's sales during the weekend celebration were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Natick.

"Natick's new store design illustrates Ethan Allen's overall strategy to reinvent our brand. With this innovative new interior and exterior design, we are showcasing our evolution within the community." stated Mr. Kathwari. "From casual to formal collections, complimentary design service, financing options and free delivery, Ethan Allen offers solutions that appeal to customers unique tastes, budgets and lifestyles. Our customers in Natick and the surrounding communities can now enjoy a more inviting, open and approachable shopping experience."

The new showroom is flooded with natural light from a unique pyramid-style skylight, highlighting the designs of the products. There are additional skylights in the design center, where Ethan Allen design consultants meet with their clients to select fabrics and wallpaper and help them to find stylish solutions for their design problems.

The displays of Ethan Allen Kids and Baby product lines and the company's latest collection, New Country by Ethan Allen, a fresh, relaxed combination of the best of American, English, and European styles, were a highlight of the store's opening event.
