Tabletop | Spring Beauties in New York | March 2015

It’s an annual rite of spring—the launch of scores of new dinnerware, glassware and flatware patterns at the New York Tabletop Show, which takes place this month. In honor of spring (and in anticipation of the coming season) expect to see flowers bloom again, along with a smattering of insects and plenty of pastels. Two big licensed lines make their debut—Elie Tahari from Mikasa (see cover story) and Ted Baker from Portmeirion, which made its worldwide launch at Ambiente in February and will be shown for the first time in the U.S. this month.
