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 1,000-sq-ft showroom on the 22nd floor.
In returning to the Forty One Madison lineup, the duo will use the showroom space as North American base for their wholesale sales division, offering ultimate convenience for buyers and interior designers.
On the 15th floor, Match 1995 and Red Vanilla are each opening a 1,000- sq-ft showroom. Match 1995, founded by David Reiss who is a RISD graduate, was the first American company producing pewter in Italy. The company is considered one of America’s leading designers of the material, working only with carefully vetted craftsmen and workshops throughout Italy.
Red Vanilla, established in 2004 by Brian Blake, son of Mikasa visionary Alf Blake, is a top resource for quality-crafted dinnerware and décor for retailers and restaurants. This brand offers a lifestyle of entertainment, enjoyment, and design, coupled with ideal products of the highest quality.
Elsewhere at 41 Madison, extensive renovations are completed on nearly half of the 9th floor. In addition to Devine Corp, the Pickard China, Fürstenberg, and Yamazaki showrooms have all been completely demolished and rebuilt since the last market. Each brand will have completely new look that is sure to delight show visitors. These showrooms are must-sees at Market. Additional updates
The Lobby renovation at Forty One Madison is well into Phase I and this will be visible again at the April Tabletop Show. 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 to reveal the complete makeover of Level A, where the Buyer’s Lounge and Coat Check will open this show. This SOM-designed space is a light, fresh, and modern space that all visitors should see and enjoy between appointments.
