FOR­GET THE WINE: BRING SONOMA HOME TO PHILLY WITH COOL NEW CITY-CEN­TRIC FUR­NISH­INGS FROM ETHAN ALLEN.

Philadelphia Style - - Contents - BY SHELLY COURTNEY

Ethan Allen’s new city-cen­tric fur­ni­ture col­lec­tions feel right at home for Philly zip codes.

You won’t find Philadel­phia among the five new city-in­spired looks in Ethan Allen’s lat­est col­lec­tion, but we won’t hold it against the 85-year-old Amer­i­can fur­ni­ture la­bel. What you will find are of-the-mo­ment pieces to fill your home with, no mat­ter the de­sign scheme. The quin­tet of looks-—brook­lyn, Buck­head, Capi­tol Hill, Santa Mon­ica and Sonoma -—per­fectly cap­tures to­day’s in­te­rior de­sign trends with a fo­cus on re­gional tastes. Need proof? Capi­tol Hill fea­tures tra­di­tional-meets-mod­ern fur­nish­ings with an em­pha­sis on leather chairs and de­tailed wood, while Brook­lyn’s eclec­tic vibe fuses in­dus­trial and farm­house styles. Buck­head’s Euro­pean flair and South­ern charm is a strik­ing counter to Sonoma’s tem­per­ate, re­laxed aes­thetic.

This sum­mer, shore houses in need of a makeover will ben­e­fit from the Santa Mon­ica col­lec­tion. The col­lec­tion, which in­cludes a cus­tom-made din­ing ta­ble, apothe­cary jars, rus­tic black con­sole ta­bles, and a high-back din­ing bench, com­bines a breezy beach feel with vin­tage farm­house in­spi­ra­tion, per­fect for sea­side con­dos in At­lantic City or sprawl­ing man­sions over­look­ing the ocean in Avalon. “Many of the pieces you see here have for­mal struc­ture, but they also in­cor­po­rate dis­tressed fin­ishes, nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, and a ver­sa­tile pal­ette,” says Kate Savino, Philadel­phia district de­sign man­ager. “It cre­ates the per­fect mar­riage of coun­try and ca­sual and makes any space re­ally ap­proach­able.” King of Prus­sia Mall, 610491-8850; ethanallen.com

A place at the ta­ble: En­ter­tain for four or 14 with Ethan Allen’s roomy Miller Rus­tic Din­ing Ta­ble ($2,139), Berk­shire Arm­chair ($469), and Clin­ton Bench (start­ing at $999) from the Santa Mon­ica Col­lec­tion.
