Casafina To Make Housewares Show Debut With New Tabletop Collections

This year, Casafina will make its debut at the International Home + Housewares Show to showcase new tabletop collections positioned to fit the needs of the independent retailer.

Founded in 1981, Casafina was purchased last year by Portuguese ceramics manufacturer Grestel. The acquisition brought Grestel tabletop to the U.S. market and increased investment in and development of the Casafina brand, Matt Hullfish, national sales manager, Casafina, told HOMEWORLD BUSINESS®.

Hullfish noted that the company is driven by giftable table and serveware assortments such as its new casserole collection, Cook and Host. In addition, each European stoneware collection is available as open stock rather than sets.

The company will showcase its new Fattoria collection. Hullfish said the new collection is the company’s answer to the farm to table trend in terms of its overall design. The collection includes mixing bowls, batter bowls, measuring cups and more, and is made of Portuguese stoneware.

The new Taormina collection features a reactive glaze finish. The stoneware collection is available in two colors, white and aqua, with a contrasting reactive glaze border. The collection includes a dinner plate, salad plate, soup/pasta bowl, soup/cereal bowl, mug, teacup and saucer, pitcher, serving bowl and oval platter, available in open stock.

The company also recently launched the Piastrella collection. Tile decorations are hand applied, making each item similar but unique, the company said. The collection includes an appetizer plate, large serving bowl, medium serving bowl, serving bowl and more.
