Ambiente preview: Lenox

During upcoming consumer goods show, Ambiente 2017, which runs February 10-14, Lenox will unveil its Monogram Collection and Season's Radiance range

At the upcoming Frankfurt Show, Lenox will unveil its Monogram Collection and Season's Radiance Collection (pictured). Created by Lenox, America’s first name in entertaining, the collections are manufactured in the USA. Lenox dinnerware is made of white bone china, while state of the art technology makes it chip-resistant and dishwasher-safe.

Monogram Collection by Lenox
Dinnerware is an integral part of the dining experience. The option to personalise one’s dinnerware creates an element of elegance for your table. Lenox is now adding a personal touch to two of their classic patterns, Federal Gold and Federal Platinum. 
 
The inspiration was fuelled by the hot trend in the marketplace for personalisation. What began as a monogrammed accent plate has now evolved into an entire monogram collection.

Lenox is now offering eleven shapes in the monogram collection. Each shape can be personalised with either a script or block font in 24k gold or precious platinum. The simplicity of the Federal Gold and Federal Platinum patterns allows them to easily mix and match with many other designs. 

Adding your personal initial makes this the perfect complement to your formal or casual Lenox dinnerware. Monogram is a refreshing update to the dinnerware category.

Lenox has successfully created a new culture of bone china that is acceptable for everyday use. As dinnerware evolves in the modern world along with it comes the casualisation of fine dining.

The key feature of Radiance is in the microwave-safe gold accents which provide the functionality for daily use.

The new Season’s Radiance collection is inspired by the view of the ocean’s majestic horizon at sea. Tim Carder, the VP of Design at Lenox, has captured the essence of each season and successfully executed his inspiration onto updated bone china shapes. 

The collection is offered in a 5-piece, 4-piece and 3-piece place settings tailored for any lifestyle. An eclectic assortment of accessories including 15-inch rectangular platters, oversized pitchers and tidbit plates in a set of four. Each piece captures the artisan touch of watercolour on canvas.
