Seen and heard at the New York Tabletop Show

The New York Tabletop Show had an exciting return to in-person events on Octoer 5–8 at 41 Madison. The Market was buzzing with positive and hopeful energy as the community came together live for the first time since October 2019.

A mix of buyers from big box and e-commerce retailers to department and specialty stores, as well as interior designers and hospitality groups, were eagerly feeling products firsthand and shopping to make up for lost time. Events were cautiously hosted and a sense of normalcy ensued. The New York Tabletop Show also brought back Interior Designer Day with a featured event in partnership with Galerie magazine.

"We were delighted to reunite with so many members of the industry at the Tabletop Show," said Kristi Forbes, senior vice president and director of 41 Madison. "Showrooms were busy with appointments and many brands revealed new or newly-renovated showrooms, and many new product introductions."
