41 Madison preview: Porcel

During the upcoming New York Tabletop Show, April 4-7, Porcel will present three new colourful collections

Porcel will showcase its three new colourful collections, Violet (purple and pink), Olivia (green hues), and Louise (blues), which uses handmade techniques with a traditional approach combined with bold hues, in the delivery of collections that work standalone or mixed and matched.

More than just colour though, Porcel’s aim with these new collections, says commercial director Paulo Amaro, “is to deliver uniqueness in each piece, thereby adding texture and gold to selected pieces using a handmade process specially developed by the Porcel Studio, and combining it with colour.”

Each collection combines full-colour pieces with textured pieces enhanced with golden details. Dinner, tea and coffee sets are available for each collection but any piece can be purchased individually.
