Gibson Expands Melamine Dinnerware Collection

Gibson Overseas is expanding its melamine dinnerware collection for 2019. The company said it is adding several new designs to meet the increased consumer demand for a category that has seen continued growth in recent years.

The company’s latest melamine options include a wide variety of patterns that feature tropical and contemporary florals in vibrant colors that officials stated mimic the look of ceramics.

“Melamine has turned into a go-to option for casual everyday dining throughout the year. Consumers love the versatility and the colorful designs that add a sophisticated look without having to worry about weight and breakage,” said David Nicklin Gibson’s vp/marketing and licensing.

According to Gibson, new open stock options include the Gibson Home Tribal design and Baypointe, which offer easy to merchandise 4-packs in geometric patterns.

In addition, the new Gibson Home Kealani Garden collection offers Hawaiian-inspired designs across an assortment of items that are designed for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. The collection includes 6-inch bowls, 8.5-inch dessert plates, 10.5-inch dinner plates, 17-inch serving tray, and a 15-inch square platter.

“Melamine is a must-have for today’s home,” Laurie Gates Gibson’s vp/creative and merchandising. “New techniques allow intricate, on-trend patterns to be applied to melamine in a cost-effective way. Melamine is now a canvas for bringing the latest design to everyday meals and at-home entertaining.”
