Ethan Allen’s habit of humanity

WAG has often turned the spotlight on Ethan Allen.

Leading the way was our 2014 feature on Farooq Kathwari, who heads up the Danbury-based furniture and home fashion company. But we’ve offered a number of updates since, including news on its stylish introductions and philanthropic efforts.

And we’ve heard that Ethan Allen is once again helping others, as this release from Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County shares:

“Ethan Allen, as part of its ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity, has donated a range of home goods to Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County (Habitat CFC) for resale in a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

“Last year, Ethan Allen donated close to 4,000 products to Habitat ReStores across the U.S. and Canada. This year’s additional donations should bring estimated total donations to 48,000 with a total estimated retail value of more than $19 million. ‘Creating happy homes is what we do best,’ said Ethan Allen’s Kevin Maldarelli, District Operations Manager for Boston South and Coastal Connecticut. ‘We’re thrilled to help families achieve their dreams of homeownership, and we’re proud to support Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County’s work in our community.’ Ethan Allen Design Centers in Canton, Manchester, Clinton, Milford, Norwalk and Stamford participated in this tremendous donation.

“Proceeds from the sale of products, which include chandeliers, area rugs, furniture and decorations, will assist Habitat in its mission to help families achieve strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.

“‘We are grateful for Ethan Allen’s partnership,’ said Stuart Adelberg, CEO of Habitat CFC. ‘These quality products will be sold in our ReStore at a reduced price and will be a great find for our ReStore customers. At the same time, the proceeds will help us build more decent, affordable homes for hardworking families in Fairfield County.’”

The Ethan Allen products are on sale at the Habitat CFC ReStore at 1785 Stratford Ave. in Stratford.
