Ethan Allen Expands Upholstery Manufacturing in North Carolina and Mexico

DANBURY, CT (September 29, 2015) -- Ethan Allen Interiors Inc. ("Ethan Allen"
or the "Company") (NYSE:ETH) today announced that its Board of Directors
approved the Company's expansion of its upholstery manufacturing operations
by building a new 300,000 sq. ft. facility in Guanajuato, Mexico adjacent to
its current 260,000 sq. ft. facility. The Company expects to break ground on
the new $15 million 300,000 sq. ft. facility within the next 45 days and
begin production in the new facility in the next 18 to 24 months.

Mr. Farooq Kathwari, Chairman and CEO stated, "We are pleased to continue to
develop a strong manufacturing capacity to grow and service our business.
Our goal is to maintain strong upholstery manufacturing in North America,
which we believe is a long-term competitive advantage that will allow us to
advance our objectives of maintaining short order times and improving
capacity to ship custom items more quickly. We are pleased to continue to
strengthen our vertically integrated structure from concept of idea, to
engineering, to manufacturing, to retail and logistics.

Mr. Kathwari concluded, "We have continued to invest in our two Maiden, NC
upholstery facilities now totaling 600,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space. In
the past two years we have invested $5 million in adding technology and other
improvements to these facilities. Our Mexico operation manufactures fully
upholstered products for our North American market as well as our
international markets including China and also provides most of the cut and
sewn covers for the Maiden, NC operations. Our 1,500 interior design
associates and 300 design centers provide a strong competitive base to grow
and service our business."
