Last week, we had the honor of having our very own Morgan Tucker take over the @41madison Instagram account during New York Tabletop Market.
The show is a three day torrent of china, glass and silver inside 41 Madison, the futuristic black-glass building at the corner of Madison and 26th, with 42 floors dedicated solely to tabletop. No big deal.
The 41 Madison building has always been New York’s Mecca of tabletop. This year, we saw the resurgence of some of the oldest names in the industry unleashing a plethora of new products that caters to the vintage, the modern and the contemporary landscapes in foodservice today.
For example, Libbey and Spiegelau have long been partners. Last week, we got a first-hand glimpse of their yet-to-be released Nachtmann glassware. This antique-driven collection casts a whole new light onto beverage program curation. And yes, M Tucker will be stocking these glasses soon! Should you be in the neighborhood, check out Libbey’s recently renovated showroom. It is an ode to glass lovers everywhere!
And speaking of antique, this year we welcomed Match Pewter into the Tabletop Hall of Fame. Match Pewter has a new showroom at 41 Madison. There, classic pewter trays and accessories are stacked floor to ceiling. To schedule a showroom visit, send an email to email@example.com.
We are also really excited that Rak is bringing its brand new Metalfusion collection to the table. The Metalfusion collection is a host of matte metal dinnerware in gold, copper and silver. Metalfusion is an extension to the Neofusion collection release at NRA in 2016.
A trip to 41 Madison would not be complete without a stop to see our old friends at Rosenthal Sambonet. They are THE cornerstone of 41 Madison. Rosenthal Sambonet continues to partner with innovative culinary product factories. Together, they constantly create new, unique and chef-driven products.
There is no city quite like New York that masters the art of hospitality. Our preferred tabletop partners at 41 Madison know just this. This month, we’re celebrating hospitality in city that never sleeps! Check out Ms. Tucker’s column in Total Food Service, and for more tabletop updates, follow @mtuckerco and @41madison.
