At the upcoming New York Tabletop Market, Forty One Madison will unveil two new showrooms, three newly remodeled and relocated showrooms, and the completed renovation of the building’s lobby and building facade.
Two new showrooms will debut from Canvas Home, a tableware and decorative accessories supplier known for its simple, yet stylish pieces crafted with sustainable materials, and Qualia Glass, a supplier of handmade glassware and lead-free crystal.
Showroom shifts include: Nambé is relocating to a newly designed showroom on the 17th floor, and BIA Cordon Bleu’s French brands Royal Limoges, Philippe Deshoulieres and Capdeco are also relocating to this 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. Oneida’s consumer division remains on the fourth floor in a newly renovated Robinson Home showroom.
Forty One Madison is also unveiling the completion of phase two of building construction, including the facade, lobby and Level A. The registration desk will include new self check-in stations to streamline entry, and new built-in vitrines lining the lobby will spotlight products. A special display is being created by The Alpha Workshops, an industry design atelier and a non-profit organization dedicated to providing decorative arts education to at-risk youths and adults with disabilities. Alpha is also teaming with interior designers Jon Call and Daun Curry, who will each style a vignette featuring products from Forty One Madison showrooms.
In addition, Forty One Madison has also partnered with Deborah Shearer, industry veteran and founder and creative director at Table + Dine, as its official trend expert for the New York Tabletop Market. Shearer will be reviewing the collections found in the showrooms and identifying the top trends that can be tracked on Forty One Madison’s Instagram and Facebook pages.
As is customary on Thursdays during market, the show will host Interior Designer Day, with 45 showrooms offering direct designer access. The New York Tabletop Market will be held October 17 to 20.
