With an earlier-than-usual date of Tuesday, September 27, through Friday, September 30, the fall edition of the New York Tabletop Market will feature a new showroom opening, as well as those that have undergone renovation.
Typhoon has moved into its first-ever U.S. showroom, located on the eighth floor, which will serve as the company’s North American headquarters. Under the Rayware umbrella, the company offers Typhoon housewares as well as other global housewares brands such as Mason Cash, Kilner and Price & Kensington.
On the fourth floor, Robinson Home Products’ showroom has undergone a renovation, transforming the presentation of the company’s collections, which include Oneida, Swish and Zing. On the seventh floor, Pasabahce also is the beneficiary of a full showroom and U.S. headquarters renovation. This includes a dedicated space for the company’s distinctive design series, Nude.
The building’s own makeover continues with a focus on the entrance, lobby, and lower level buyer’s lounge.
“We’re in the thick of the renovation and we are excited that it’s on schedule,” said Laurie Burns, svp/director, Forty One Madison. “The show will go on with all 95 of our showrooms open for business, unaffected by the construction.”
The building’s temporary reception desk will be operational, she noted. A complimentary daily coat check will be relocated on the tenth floor where guests can check coats and bags. Floor 10 will also feature a media wall, where a variety of home and lifestyle magazines are complimentary, courtesy of the publishers.
Interior Designer Day, planned for Thursday, September 29, kicks off with a private breakfast reception hosted by Burns to introduce designers to Kaitlin Petersen, an editor of Metropolitan Home magazine. Following, guests can explore and shop the participating showrooms, meet with company executives, and see firsthand the newest products and latest trends.
“Interior Designer Day has proven to be extremely valuable for interior designers, growing in-depth knowledge about this category and expanding their network of go-to resources for the types of décor details needed to complete residential as well as commercial projects,” said Burns.
