Homer Laughlin has unveiled its Fiesta Dinnerware brand’s 50th color since its introduction in 1936, at the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. Fiesta’s 2018 color is Mulberry, a rich, jewel-tone shade of purple with a red cast.
Standard dinnerware pieces will be available in Mulberry, including three, four and five piece sets, three piece bistro place settings and a variety of plates, platters, bowls, mugs, signature disk pitcher and serving pieces. Suggested retail price for the four and five piece place settings is $32.99 and $56 respectively.
With the addition of Mulberry, Tangerine and Claret are retiring. Tangerine was in production since 2003. Claret was in production since 2016.
“Mulberry complements every shade in the Fiesta color palette,” said Rich Brinkman, vp/sales and marketing at Homer Laughlin. “It was important for us to add purple to our lineup. Mulberry is very on trend with what we’ve been seeing in fashion and home decor recently. It offers a lot of versatility.”
Mulberry will be available to consumers at better department stores, independent retailers and e-commerce sites by mid-June 2018.
