Setting a Roman Inspired Table

Oct 22, 2015 2:17:24 PM

Recently our Vetro Gold dinnerware and glassware were chosen to grace the tables of a private event in NYC.  This event was hosted by celebrities in the beautiful James B Duke house off 5th Ave.  The theme was Roman inspired with lavish foods, harpists and floral crowns.

Not all of us are so lucky to attend an event as fabulous as this but we can use it to inspire our own Roman themed dinner party!

Spring Preview @ The Ace Hotel-NYC

Oct 19, 2015 9:36:37 AM

New York Tabletop week was last week, October 13-16.  We decided to reserve a suite at the hip Ace Hotel. Store owners visited us to see our beautiful new products for Spring 2016, have a glass of wine, etc.  It was a nice change of pace, plus the weather was perfect!

Guests entered the hotel through the bustling lobby and up to the forth floor suite.

Staff was invited the evening of the 13th, for drinks, food and previewing the collection.


President Chris Collins showing Tania Nieves our new Marina Collection.

Marina Collection, offered in blue and white, linens by Purity Bath.

Leave it to The Ace to have a fun pop art mural in the suite, we were thinking pizza on the boardwalk!

New Villaggio Dinnerware, Cavallo Glassware and new pewter pieces.

New Giuletta Dinnerware with Volterra Nero and New Elena Flatware

These were a few of the 120 new items we have planned for Spring 2016!  Other additions include new Burano, Finezza, Bella Bianca, Tuscan, Merletto White, Lucia, Peltro, Tavola and a new collection Venezia!

Guests were welcomed with a sign featuring our new Volterra Nero.

Guests were served Italian wines, cheeses and pastries from nearby Eataly.

Wines were served in glasses from our Anna Collection and they were then wrapped and packed in gift bags and sent home as gifts.

We were thrilled with the turnout and so were some others!




You too can experience the Spring Preview Collection!

AD Home Show 2015

We were excited to be apart of the Architectural Digest Home Show in New York recently. This show is different than the other types of trade show events we participate in because it is directed toward designers and is also open to the public. Exhibitors included everyone from high-end appliances, lighting, and home furnishings.

It was great being amongst these top companies!

Here is our cozy corner spot!

Notice the lamp in the background?  This is a piece from our Ducale Collection we had made into a lamp.

During the show we handed out gifts to those that stopped by the booth.  Each bag contained a brochure and a spoon from our Finezza Collection.

We highlighted our Tuscan Collection at the show as well as key pewter items such as Ducale, Barware, Flatware, and Glassware.

How pretty are our Vintage Pitchers as vases!

During the AD Home Show DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting Aids) sponsored "Dining by Design" where designers are chosen to create amazing table displays.  A cocktail event is held and you are able to "dine" in these amazing vignettes!  There is also a silent auction and all proceeds go to DIFFA.

We were so honored to have been asked to be apart of the Beacon Hill vignette, designed by Corey Damen Jenkins.

Here is the rendering.

And the Final Design!  Amazing right?!

Our Vetro Gold Collection was selected for the table.

We donated the Vetro Water/Wine glasses for the Silent Auction.  Below is a promo pic from DIFFA on Instagram.  

Be sure to follow us on Instagram as well as DIFFA to see other amazing tables that will inspire and wow you!

Besides the Beacon Hill table, of course, this was another favorite!
