CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY

An Ethan Allen designer knows more ways than you can imagine to customize a sofa, chair or headboard. Check out these eight tips for a quick overview of your custom options and then visit your nearest Ethan Allen Design Center to start creating a look that’s yours and yours alone.

FABRIC IS FASHION

Ethan Allen offers you over a thousand different fabrics and dozens of leathers, in all grades and in every color, pattern and texture you can imagine. Think about combining them for the ultimate fashion statement. View our online fabric library. Ever wonder how our upholstery comes to life? Go behind the seams at our North American workshop.

SERVE UP THE PERFECT FINISH

The exposed wood frames on our upholstered seating styles can be customized in our North American workshops with your choice of hand-applied finishes. See them all in-store.

MAKE YOUR MARK

A monogram is a letter-perfect way to show off your signature style. Available on select fabrics in your choice of type treatments and 16 thread colors. All monograms are added by our embroidery specialists in North Carolina. Our designers can help you add them to your order.

NAIL THE DETAILS

Sometimes that little something extra is all you need to take a piece from “I like it” to “I can’t live without it.” Bring on the love with nailhead trim (now available in dramatic new patterns and six different finishes), welting or fabric tapes. All are applied by hand.

SKIRT THE RULES

Love the traditional look? You’re not alone! Add a skirt to many of our sofas, loveseats, chairs and ottomans with the help of our design professionals for an added dressmaker detail.

GET YOUR FILL

Like style, comfort is personal. That’s why we give you a choice of up to six comfort options for your sofa, loveseat, sectional or sleeper cushions. Cushions filled with foam and fiber offer firm support, while those filled with featherblend give you that great sink-in feeling. Stop in to test them out.

APPLY A LITTLE TUFT LOVE

Tufting is a timeless upholstery technique first spotted on the Chesterfield sofa in the 18th century. Still a sought-after design element today, it’s added to our styles by the hands of highly skilled craftspeople in our own North American workshops. Learn more at your local Design Center.

PULL A QUICK CHANGE

Slipcovers are the affordable way to fresh style in an instant. Ours are hand-tailored, fitted to our frames (so they’ll always look neat) and available in 54 versatile fabrics. Let a designer show you which sofas, chairs and ottomans they complement.

SEW UP THE SMALL DETAILS

Something as small as a pillow can change the whole feeling of a space. At Ethan Allen, we offer you thousands of fabrics plus fashion touches like piping and trims to create pillows that are anything but predictable. Available in an array of shapes and sizes. Customize yours in-store today.
