BURLINGTON -- Ethan Allen Interiors Inc., an interior-design company and manufacturer and retailer of home furnishings, announced plans to open a new design center at the Wayside Commons in Burlington late this summer.

The 11,000-square-foot space is at 6 Wayside Road.

The company said clients can expect to see a boutique-style layout complete with the company's newest products -- including Fresh Colors, which was recently introduced, and Impressions, which will launch next month -- as well as user-friendly technology.

"We are thrilled to bring this design center with a new concept in design to Burlington," said Amy Franks, Ethan Allen's managing director in the Northeast, in a statement. "It reinforces our message that we are no longer just a furniture store, but a resource for total home solutions."

Ethan Allen has operated in Burlington on Cambridge Street for nearly 20 years.
