The New York International Gift Fair’s winter edition will feature 500 tabletop resources presented throughout its 10 divisions, according to show producer GLM.
The Gift Fair’s Tabletop & Housewares Division will benefit both from returning and expanded lines, it stated.
“These expansions and new introductions represent an exponential increase in new products and innovative resources at NYIGF,” said Dorothy Belshaw, NYIGF director and senior vp/ GLM. “No other U.S. market offers retailers such a broad collection of tabletop resources.”
Several companies from the United States and Europe will expand their exhibit space: Deborah Rhodes, luxury table linens; Joseph Joseph, contemporary kitchen and cookware accessories; Mastrad, kitchenware and silicone utensils and gadgets; Picnic Time, picnic, outdoor and lifestyle products, and Reed & Barton, sterling silver and stainless steel flatware.
Several design-oriented companies also will return to Tabletop & Housewares following an absence from the New York market: Alexandra Von Furstenberg, modern acrylic tabletop accessories; Mane Lion, hand-painted dinnerware and accessories, and Scantrends, Scandinavian housewares, collectibles and accessories.
Additionally, Arbiter, a new wholesale division of Salt of the Earth carrying artisan items from Italy, and Make International, featuring design-driven whiteware, will make their New York market debuts this winter within Accent on Tabletop.
