“A muse is someone who awakens creativity. Someone who influences another in such a way that he or she becomes the driving force behind that person’s body of work. Someone who helps you to see things through fresh eyes. Again and again.” ~ Forooq Kathwari, CEO of Ethan Allen.
Have you seen the new Ethan Allen catalogs or visited a design center lately? Thanks to the creative talents of Norah Murphy, former Executive Vice President of Style, the Ethan Allen brand has become more fashion-forward and in tune with what younger, hipper home owners are looking for. This fusion of traditional taste and contemporary flair is beautifully presented not only in the company’s products but also in a new 328-page “magalog” (magazine-catalog) called Muses.
The gorgeous images in this tome are divided into different subjects that have inspired us for generations – dance, laughter, drama, history, poetry, architecture, love, music, spirit and art. So what does this have to do with interior decor? Everything… Inspired design comes from the soul and each one of these muses feeds our creative spirit.
Best of all, this book is free at any Ethan Allen store and online, so we urge you to take a fresh look at this iconic brand and let us know what you think!
