Running April 4 to 7 at FortyOne Madison, the New York Tabletop Show will present a bevy of new product and will also feature an April 5 breakfast with Jung Lee, owner of the eponymous boutique as well as event company Fête, in conversation with Debbie Propst, president of One Kings Lane, and Warren Shoulberg, editorial director of HFN.
Additionally, the show will host a day focused on interior designers, held April 6. “It’s a dedicated market day for design pros to see the newest trends, discover new products for their clients, and meet with company principals and representatives to discuss their projects,” says Laurie Burns, senior vice president and director of FortyOne Madison.
Two Iuxury Italian brands, Ercolano and Mepra, will debut at the market, while other showrooms plan moves throughout the building. NIKKO, the Japanese tableware manufacturer and FortyOne Madison’s original tabletop brand, will open a new 1,500-square-foot showroom; Vietri will expand by 50 percent to make space for its expanding lines; and DeVine, which hosts brands including J.L. Coquet, Ercuis, Raynaud and others, is being renovated.
“We expect the April show to debut more new product than ever,” says Burns. “Companies are investing in R&D and pushing the boundaries of their production creativity. Buyers will be delighted to see what will be shown here for the first time in New York. Its early April date this year is perfect.”
Debuting collections include Vista Alegre premieres from Christian Lacroix, Jaime Hayon, Bordallo Pinheiro and others; Fiskars Living Brands, launching lines from Waterford, Wedgwood, Royal Doulton and Royal Albert Brands; Christofle, with new flatware and home accessories including a new MOOD flatware set designed just for coffee; and a number of collections from the likes of Richard Ginori, Iittala, Royal Copenhagen, PROUNA, Dogale, Kiyasa Signature, Greggio Silver and Lehmann Glass.
