Don't miss... Porcel at 41 Madison

Discover what exciting new products Porcel will unveil at the New York Tabletop Market, which runs until April 15

An abundance of new products will be on display when the doors open Tuesday, April 12 – Friday, April 15 for The New York Tabletop Market at Forty One Madison, showroom headquarters for more than 120 of the world’s most renowned brands.

For this season, Porcel has created three new tableware decorations – Imperio, Vivian and Allegro, with full sets of dinner, tea and coffee.

Imperio is based on one of the first Porcel collections from 1986, and delivers an innovative technique where a slim gold sheet lays on top of an embossed texture; it also offers blue plates and saucers for the ultimate in mix and match. 

Vivian, in white and gold, has been designed both as a complete set and to be interchanged with others; and as a complement, Vivian Rose, with its rose-coloured glaze finish, allows multiple tabletop combinations. 

Finally, inspired by rhythm of music Allegro Tempo, Allegro (pictured) delivers slim platinum lines over white porcelain.
