41 Madison preview: Noritake

During the upcoming New York Tabletop Show, which runs September 27-30, Noritake will unveil new Colorwave colourway Slate

During the upcoming autumn edition of The New York Tabletop Show, set to take place at an earlier-than-usual date of September 27-30, Noritake will reveal the latest colourway in its successful Colorwave Collection.

Slate is the newest addition to the highly-successful Colorwave Collection, which features a matte-textured, deep colouration on the outside suggestive of a dove’s feather, weathered rocks and stormy skies. This matte colour is combined with a glossy, cream-coloured glaze on the inside. The three place setting options are coupe, rim and square, and a full suite of accessories and serving pieces are also available.

The Colorwave Collection, made of fine stoneware and microwave, dishwasher and freeze-safe, continues to be a success story globally, with Noritake continually expanding it, and in the US, it’s been the top bridal registering and selling collection for more than 15 years. The wide range of colours, from Apple, Chocolate and Mustard to Raspberry and Terra Cotta, as well as shapes and accessories, means the range can be dressed up or down, offering hundreds of possible table setting combinations for any occasion.

Not only are we creating dinnerware in a trending neutral shade that will appeal to current dinnerware shoppers, we are also creating an opportunity for current Colorwave owners to expand their collection and explore the opportunities of mixing and matching our different hues,” says Peter Goldberg, Noritake’s executive vice president.

New York Tabletop Show
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 comes 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. With Keith Brymer Jones, renowned potter and presenter of BBC2 TV programme The Great Pottery Throw Down serving as head of design, Make International has had its profile raised, and the company is ìlooking forward to serving all retailers in the US, who have been patiently waiting for our products for yearsî, says CEO Dominic Speelman.

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.
