NEW YORK – Debuting at the Oct. 17-20 New York Tabletop Market will be two new showrooms, three newly remodeled and relocated showrooms and the completed renovation of the 41 Madison lobby, Buyer’s Lounge and building façade.
Qualia Glass, a premier supplier of fine handmade glassware and lead-free crystal, will launch its 41 Madison showroom, encompassing a 1,100-square-feet space on the 15th Floor.
Showroom Shifts to Note:
- Nambé will be relocating its newly designed showroom to the 17th floor.
- BIA Cordon Bleu’s luxury division housing three of France’s oldest factories, Royal Limoges, Philippe Deshoulieres and CAPDECO, is relocating to the 17th floor. BIA’s housewares showroom remains on the third floor.
- The Oneida Group has opened a new showroom dedicated to its food-service collections on the 15th floor. This showroom houses brands such as: Anchor Hocking, Buffalo, Buffet Euro, Luzerne, Oneida, Oneida Strata, Sant’ Andrea and Stölzle. Oneida’s consumer division remains on the fourth floor in the newly renovated Robinson Home Showroom.
The wraps are coming off the renovation that has transformed Forty One Madison’s façade, lobby and Level A, and the October show will mark the project’s completion of phase two. The registration desk, now strategically located in the newly constructed building entrance, will include new self-check-in stations to streamline show entry. New built-in vitrines line the lobby and will spotlight a variety of products from top brands. To trumpet the official opening of the new lobby, a special display is being created by The Alpha Workshops the nation’s only non-profit organization dedicated to providing decorative arts education to at-risk youths and adults with disabilities. Alpha, which is producing the extraordinary backdrops and the decorative tables, is joining with two interior designers—Jon Call, founder of Mr. Call Designs, and Daun Curry –who will each style a vignette featuring products from Forty One Madison showrooms.
Interior Designer Day
The show will host Interior Designer Day on Thursday, October 19, with 45 showrooms offering Direct Designer Access. Designers are invited to shop showrooms and meet with industry leaders from around the world from 9AM – 5PM. The complete list of showrooms can be found in the show Directory or on the 41 Madison App.
Tabletop Trends Watch
Forty One Madison has partnered with Deborah Shearer, industry veteran and founder and creative director at Table + Dine, as the official trend expert for the New York Tabletop Market. Shearer will be reviewing the latest and greatest collections found in the showrooms and identifying the top trends that can be tracked on 41 Madison’s Instagram and Facebook.
“There will be more new product than ever at the show; it is a must-visit this fall,” said Laurie Burns, senior vice president and director of Forty One Madison. “We hope all visitors enjoy the recently completed, SOM-designed lobby and buyers lounge. We have invested substantially in the building and marketplace to serve the tabletop industry’s needs far into the future.”
