Restaurant Design Influences Inspire Vendors At New York Tabletop Market

The fall New York Tabletop Market at the Forty One Madison building is showcasing a range of design and lifestyle trends this season, such as reactive glazes and gray color stories. Another key tabletop trend for the home seen throughout the market includes a range of designs that are influenced by hospitality tableware.

Taking design inspiration from diners and bistros is Kate Spade New York. The brand has expanded its All in Good Taste assortment with diner influenced glassware, beverageware and storage. Gibson’s Just Dine takes a similar design approach. Dinnerware with bistro blue borders has also been seen throughout market, including Meyer’s Paula Deen Country Barnyard pattern, which mixes bistro with a country feel.

From a more literal perspective, Arc International is bringing its restaurant brand Chef & Sommelier stemware collection to retail. In addition, Vista Alegre is bringing a selection of white dinnerware patterns from its hotel offerings, and Robinson Home relaunched its Buffalo China brand, popular in food service, to a retail audience.
