Forty One Madison Welcomes New Tenants
March 10, 2017,
NEW YORK—Two luxury Italian tabletop brands, Ercolano and Mepra, have landed at Forty One Madison and will debut showrooms for next month’s New York Tabletop Market. For both, their debut at Forty One Madison represents a strategic move to expand business in the North American market.
Ercolano is renowned for its handcrafted inlaid wood boxes and furniture, and is especially esteemed for its iconic tabletop designs. Founded in Sorrento, Italy, nearly a century ago, the family-owned company has a rich history that includes creating lavish furnishings for European royalty. “As a beloved European staple, we are thrilled to be joining the roster of great brands at Forty One Madison and look forward to furthering our global presence,” said Orlando Ercolano, company president. The 1,000-square foot Ercolano showroom is on the 22th floor.
Mepra, the Italian factory owned by the Prandelli family, has manufactured sleek, modern flatware, cookware, serveware, barware and tabletop accessories since 1927. Its collections will be on display in the company’s 1,500-square foot showroom on the 22nd floor. “Mepra currently enjoys an established global business in foodservice and hospitality, but we are excited to expand our brand as a household name in the U.S. market,” said sales manager Luca Prandelli. “With our new post at Forty One Madison, we look forward to bridging new relationships and building our consumer awareness for Mepra in the Americas.”
