New York Tabletop Show opens today!

Forty One Madison’s autumn New York Tabletop Show opens today with two new showrooms, lots of renovations and plenty of exciting new product. See our highlights below...

With an earlier-than-usual date of September 27 -30, the fall edition of The New York Tabletop Market is cranking up with two new showroom openings, untold new product introductions, and a swirl of activity as Forty One Madison undergoes its first major renovation in 42 years.

From across the pond come two UK-based companies, set to make Forty One Madison their US home, and the New York Tabletop Market, their US-based trade show.

First up comes Typhoon, a family-owned company with a portfolio of hip, retro-cool kitchen and dining products, including brands like Mason Cash, Kilner and Price & Kensington. Typhoon will take a 1,200 sq-ft location on the 8th floor. Secondly, Make International, a British-based ceramics company has taken a showroom, a 1,000 sq-ft space on the 17th floor, giving the company its first-ever North American showroom.

As for renovations, the 4th floor showroom for Robinson Home has undergone a gut renovation, totally transforming the presentation of the company’s collections, which include Oneida, Swish and Zing. On the 7th floor, Pasabahce, the acclaimed Turkish resource for glass and other tabletop needs, also is the beneficiary of a full showroom and US headquarters renovation

The building’s own makeover continues with a focus on the entrance, lobby, and lower level buyer’s lounge. The show will go on with all 95 of the showrooms open for business and unaffected by the construction. A temporary reception desk will be operational to register visitors and the complimentary daily coat check will be relocated on the 10th floor, as well as the Media Wall, where a variety of home and lifestyle magazines are complimentary.

Interior Designer Day, planned for September 29, kicks off with a private breakfast and presentation by Kaitlin Petersen, editor of the recently revived Metropolitan Home magazine.
