|Business Description and Basis of Presentation [Text Block]||
Principles of Consolidation. Ethan Allen conducts business globally and has strategically aligned its business into two reportable segments: Wholesale and Retail. These two segments represent strategic business areas of our vertically integrated enterprise that operate separately and provide their own distinctive services. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Our consolidated financial statements also include the accounts of an entity in which we are a majority shareholder with the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the entity’s performance. Noncontrolling interest amounts in the entity are immaterial and included in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income within Other income (expense), net. All intercompany activity and balances have been eliminated from the consolidated financial statements.
Use of Estimates. We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP, which requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of net sales and expenses during the reporting period. Due to the inherent uncertainty involved in making those estimates, actual results could differ from those estimates. Areas in which significant estimates have been made include, but are not limited to, goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment analyses, useful lives for property, plant and equipment, inventory obsolescence, business insurance reserves, tax valuation allowances, the evaluation of uncertain tax positions and other loss reserves.
Reclassifications. The Company reclassified in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income certain prior year comparative figures from Interest (expense), net of interest income to Interest and other financing costs and Other income (expense), net to conform to the current year’s presentation. In addition, the Company reclassified proceeds received from stock option exercises reported in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows from Other financing activities to Proceeds from employee stock plans within Net cash used in financing activities to conform to the current year's presentation. These changes were made for disclosure purposes only and did not have any impact on previously reported results.
The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the date that the financial statements were issued.
