The Forty One Madison building will debut a newly renovated buyer’s lounge at the New York Tabletop Market, which will be held April 4 to 7. Management has also announced the opening of four additional showrooms.
French brands Daum, which is over a century old, and Haviland & Co., a factory founded in 1842, will be showcasing, respectively, their latest crystal art and Limoges porcelain collections in a showroom on the 22nd floor. In returning to the Forty One Madison lineup, the duo will use the showroom space as a North American base for their wholesale sales division.
On the 15th floor, Match 1995 and Red Vanilla are each opening a showroom. Match 1995 was the first American company producing pewter in Italy, according to the company. Red Vanilla, established in 2004 by Brian Blake, is a resource for quality-crafted dinnerware and décor for retailers and restaurants.
In addition, extensive renovations have been completed on nearly half of the ninth floor. In addition to Devine Corp., the Pickard China, Fürstenberg, and Yamazaki showrooms have all been completely rebuilt since the last market.
In a building renovation update, the lobby renovation at Forty One Madison is well into its phase one and this will be visible again at the April market. Show registration will be located just outside the front entrance facing Madison Square Park. Show ambassadors will be on hand to guide guests and answer questions.
The wraps also are coming off the complete makeover of Level A, where the buyer’s lounge and coat check will open this show. The space is described as light, fresh and modern. Light refreshments compliments of Forty One Madison will be served in the newly designed open kitchen café in the lounge.
