Ethan Allen brings contemporary comforts to lnn at Lambertville Station


// (c) 2011 Inn at Lambertville Station

A stay at the time-honored Inn at Lambertville Station will now offer not only a picturesque landscape setting, suited on the banks of the Delaware River, but lodgings that are furnished with the comforts of home in a modern design. The Lambertville, N.J-based inn recently underwent a five-month renovation in which its 45 rooms were contemporary restyled by Ethan Allen to showcase all the comforts of home. The end result consists of six inviting design styles, ranging from standard and deluxe accommodates to suites.

Ethan Allen’s Contract Division design team spent a week exploring the region’s history, architecture, local attractions, and bed and breakfast culture to determine ways to stylishly capitalize on this historic Lambertville location. Citing a connection to Lambertville Station’s waterfront setting, Jim DeBernardo, Ethan Allen’s director-display planning, explained his team designed each room “as an oasis of calm with a contemporary, neutral palette, adding splashes of color and pattern for a warm, hospitable ambience.”

Throughout the rooms, a juxtaposition of distinctive wood finishes with glass, metal, and richly patterned and colored textiles provides great depth in the design, while complementing the existing traditional architecture. Textured wall coverings are durable, and add the natural look of grasscloth.

DeBernardo added that the design team paid close attention to details such as luxury bedding and seating comfort as well as the obvious needs a business traveler would have such as large work surfaces and Wi-Fi accessibility.  “These are the things that make the difference between a hotel you'd stay at for work, and a hotel you look forward to visiting,” said DeBernardo.

With the project launched at the top of the year, room furnishings combine balance and functionality, with cushy loveseats and chairs to encourage the comforts of home to fundamental pieces like the Quincy Bed in black to put a modern perspective on classic design. Similarly, large desks and substantial lighting provide ample, practical work areas.

The Inn’s lobby, too, has a fresh new look with Ethan Allen furnishings arranged in small seating areas around the fireplace, which was designed to encourage conversation among guests. To learn more about the Inn at Lambertville Station, visit or call 609-397-4400.
