Buyers and retail executives from national department stores, big box chains and independent specialty stores across North America were delighted by new introductions and showroom expansions at the Fall 2009 Tabletop Show at Forty One Madison in New York this month. “I believe this Market marked a turning point in the industry at a time consumer confidence is on the uptick," said Laurie Burns, Senior Vice President and Director of Forty One Madison. "We had a number of new companies in the building, many for the first time, with really innovative, colorful and fun designs. There was a wealth of introductions, showroom expansions, remodeled spaces and a general sense that the industry has stabilized." The last few months has seen several industry leaders from all price points renew long term leases, cementing their commitment to New York and ’41 Madison.’ In response and in the spirit of innovation, Rudin, the building owner and manager, built five new showrooms with cutting edge technology and ecologically friendly products. All carpeting is LEED certified, constructed of recycled materials which can ultimately be recycled. They've also made a commitment to use only recyclable materials and energy efficient products as new showrooms open and existing ones expand or remodel.
