NEW YORK–Six of the most venerable names in the tableware industry—Devine Corp., Laurie Gates, Noritake, Over and Back, Riedel Crystal and Yamazaki—have renewed their permanent showroom leases at Forty One Madison.
“These global stalwarts are leaders in their categories,” said Laurie Burns, senior vice president and director of Forty One Madison. “Their commitments mark an upswing of confidence in the business of tableware, in Forty One Madison and New York City as the best place to showcase the industry.”
Several of the showrooms will be relocating to different floors in time for the spring New York Tabletop Market which runs April 13-16.
Noritake’s showroom will relocate to the seventh floor in time for the April show. Yamazaki will move to the ninth floor.
Laurie Gates is doubling its space with more fashion- forward dinnerware, expanding and relocating to the newly renovated 17th floor.
A number of special events will surround the New York Tabletop Market at Forty One Madison including lobby settings created by the editors of Martha Stewart magazines. Bridal Guide will sponsor a complimentary Café offering light Greek savories during the Show on Level A. Trade and consumer publications will be available on the building’s Media Wall in the Buyers’ Lounge.
Additionally, an international art exhibition, Event Horizon, featuring Antony Gormley’s sculptures, will be on display in and around Madison Square Park, and on the front of Forty One Madison, from March 26 to Aug. 15.
