Living and Entertaining to Debut at AmericasMart in January

ATLANTA-Come this January, the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market will see the launch of Living and Entertaining: Gifts, Tabletop & Accessories.

The new name for the tabletop product center at AmericasMart is designed to reflect the product evolution of the tabletop and gift areas on floors eight and nine in Building 2.

"With a casual-style influence and the need to offer a broader range of product, companies are now showing merchandise intended for everyday use and gift-giving," AmericasMart said in a press release. "Living and Entertaining captures this progression and will become the next destination for all-occasion entertaining."

The newly named section is anchored by showrooms Lazy Susan, Juliska, Michael Aram, Lunares and Caspari. It will spotlight items including more casual and everyday tabletop; paper tableware to include napkins, paper plates and other paper accessories; candles and candle sticks; tabletop designed for everyday use--dishwasher, microwave and oven safe.

Designer Kathryn M. Ireland will help unveil the new name in a presentation of Living and Entertaining at Home on Friday, Jan. 8, in Building 2, showroom #9-939, during which she will discuss practical entertaining advice.
