My wife and I recently remodeled our bedroom, which involved a new bed frame. Ethan Allen in Agoura Hills was recommended to us and we were paired up with a very patient designer, Mugdha. Their customer service is top notch, especially since we've never "built" a frame from scratch. They walked us through all of the options, even asked to see a picture of our bedroom to ensure the color scheme and design matched the floors/walls. I would highly recommend them for your furniture needs.
I got lost on my way to the La-Z Boy store and saw a sign for Ethan Allen. I bought two items from them 25 years ago and still love them, so I thought I'd give them a try. Boy, am I glad I did! Holly helped me out and I quickly went from confused and indecisive to ecstatically happy. She has a lot of knowledge about everything in the store, all the nuances of comfort I was unaware of, and she seemed to be a mind reader as far as fabrics I would like. I couldn't be any happier with my shopping experience!

Always quality furnishings. Excellent decor guidance with in-store professional designers. Consistent quality during all past years I’ve been buying from them. If a person needs home furnishings start here and compare. You will recognize the value.
I bought a custom sofa from EA, and it was great from start to finish with all custom options, it is beautiful and very comfortable. Excellent customer service from my sales designer: Drew. A custom fabric that would be railroad as opposed to up the bolt so the application would have no seams showing as I had chosen an option of a bench cushion, and then upgraded to spring down fill.
I purchased an outdoor side table, on display in store as outdoor table; loved it so purchased two more online; approximately two weeks after receiving second purchase of 2 tables, saw that discoloration had occurred in the one placed outdoors when compared to the two new ones; returned the one to store from where purchased; Ethan Allen refuses to refund the other two, nor provide a return label, states I am beyond 30 days for notification. I say take your business elsewhere. Too many furniture stores in this country to deal with this indignity - time consuming, not worth the price, perhaps why they are not doing so well in overall sales.
We bough a bedroom set and the lamps on 12/13/2021. It took a few months to receive a complete bedroom set. But the lamps are still out of stock. Delivery date for the lamps supposed to be in 8 weeks but now it is the end of May, which would be more than 6 months since the purchase.
We have purchased furniture from EA in the past and are satisfied with their products. We went to add two chairs to our dining set. When we made the purchase we were told of the $200 delivery fee. At that time we had already committed to the chairs and didn't want to walk away. We should have. On hindsight it is ridiculous and annoying. I asked if the chairs could be delivered to the store and we could pick up, but this was not an option. If you're buying a bunch of furniture, $200 is nothing. If you're buying 2 chairs, it is insane. Will not even consider going here for small purchases any longer. Probably reconsidering going here at all.
I purchased a living room set (couch, recliner, entertainment center) in 2017 from your Jacksonville office. I had some damage occur in December 2020 and January 2021. I submitted a claim in February and was denied because it was out of the reporting window. However, it took me TWO weeks to get ahold of someone in order to file said claim, after I was provided the number by one of the Ethan Allen associates and my order #**.
After noting the delay, I was later told by your customer service representative and Guardsman that the delay in reporting was my fault and it could have be done online. Guardsman then took 3 weeks to get back to me. If it is critical that reporting be done in a specific time frame, then why is a delay getting back to me acceptable? Specifically, I am having issue with the quality of your products and the guardsman furniture protection you sold. The finish has worn off on the top of the entertainment center and the couch stains/discolors easily.
I have filed a complaint with the BBB for guardsman furniture protection you sold me. Not only did they take multiple attempts to respond to the complain and 30 days, they don’t answer the phone, return messages, and you stay on hold for hours. They report these issues and delays to COVID, but I am not afforded the same rights. Refusing coverage during the pandemic to an essential healthcare worker because it is out of the time frame is despicable.
I didn’t report it in the appropriate time frame due to working at Cedars Sinai, a 1000 bed trauma center in downtown Los Angeles, during the peak and also didn’t feel comfortable having someone in my home until vaccinated which resulted in delay of reporting. My protection plan provided by Ethan Allen does not have this disclaimer. I emailed Ethan Allen customer service who said they would forward my request for help to the regional team, which I never heard back from.
After having to reach out twice, the same customer service representative who initially disregarded my email from the local store called me to inform me that she spoke to Guardsman on my behalf and there was nothing more she or Guardsman can do for me. Not everything is black and white, this is a very fluid situation. Like travel carriers have adjusted their policies to account for things outside of control due to pandemic, exceptions can be made for certain circumstances. NO THANKS HERE TO HEALTHCARE HEROES.
I complained to the store while the delivery men were still here. Pictures were sent over and they told me that they would take care of it. They were calling corporate. That was 5 weeks ago. The couch is now getting lumpy, the back cushions are indenting and not bouncing back, they are also getting out of shape because the covering is slipping around.
Having spent more than $4,000 on furniture from Ethan Allen, I would have expected better service. I ordered furniture on 12/3/20 and I was given a 3/6/21 delivery date and am now being told not expect delivery until sometime in May. Totally unacceptable when they have the use of your deposit for months and you have no living room furniture. It may be great quality but if you don't have the furniture, what good is their quality.
