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