NY NOW preview: Carrol Boyes
During the upcoming Winter edition of NY NOW, which runs February 4-8, Carrol Boyes will present its new ceramic collection
Founded in 1989, and with its headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa, Carrol Boyes Functional Art designs, manufactures and distributes an extensive range of metal homeware, giftware, flatware and tabletop products. Trademark metals and materials include pewter, spun and cast aluminium, stainless steel, chrome plated zinc, wood, leather, ceramics, glass and fabric.
At NY Now, Carrol Boyes will launch its new range of ceramics. Inspired by Carrol’s archive of sketchbook drawings, when Carrol was persuaded to make a select few of these public by transferring them to the finest quality porcelain dinnerware, the Sketchbook ceramic range features humble plates and mugs transformed into bespoke works of art. Items in the new range include bone china mugs Indigo Girls, which features a triplet of girls stretched out in relaxed poses across the mugs and bone china mugs Out of the Blue, featuring a set of two dreamy faces on an elegantly tall shape. Also new is Hideen Beauty, a white on white mug featuring a floral design and Oyster Catcher, bone china mugs featuring South Africa’s enigmatic coastal bird.

About NY NOW
Featuring a lineup of 2,400+ exciting exhibitors, including thousands of premier established and emerging brands, showcasing a robust selection of tens of thousands of on-trend products across hundreds of categories, NY Now, the Market for Home, Lifestyle + Gift, will deliver its Winter Market from February 4-8, 2017.
“There’s no better time than February for buyers to discover new and emerging trends,” said Randi Mohr, VP and NY Now co-director. “With thousands of new products debuting at the winter market, NY Now gives retailers an opportunity to zero in on the products and trends with the most sell-through potential as they re-stock their stores for Spring.”
Typically, more than two-thirds of exhibitors launch new products exclusively here, providing attendees – key retailers Bed Bath & Beyond, Barneys New York, Kohl’s Department Stores, Gracious Home, Macy’s, Nest, Nordstrum, Saks Fifth Avenue and Wayfair - with an endless amount of innovation across the market’s three comprehensive Collections.
“So many of our exhibitors attend the market and tell us afterwards what an amazing experience it was and how they had the opportunity to reach new buyers and expand their brand’s presence both domestically and internationally,” says Scott Kramer, VP and NY Now co-director.
Anna Rabinowicz, owner of Rablabs, New York, which exhibits at NY Now, says: “NY Now is the moment that changed our business. We started here in a small booth years ago. When we evaluate our business, it’s comparing before NY Now and after NY Now.”
As part of the Home Collection, which features 1,000+ exhibitors, Tabletop + Gourmet Housewares presents a stunning collection of resources for home entertaining, gourmet kitchenware and speciality tabletop resources including product categories of glassware, serveware, dinnerware, flatware, table linens, gourmet kitchenware, cookware and barware. While Accent on Design presents nearly 150 established and emerging design brands, including some tabletop.
Tabletop exhibitors include Lenox, Gien, Abbiamo Tutto, Beatriz Ball Collection, Godinger, Kim Seybert, Michael Aram, Michael Wainwright, Nude Glass, Rolf Glass, Farmhouse Pttery, Mary Jurek Design and Sabre.
