Utilitarian Design: Most featured product designs were influenced by foodservice and hospitality roots. The homeware was influenced by restaurant quality features and functionality, while still emulating the experience of dining at a local restaurant.
Brand Partnerships: The tabletop industry continues to branch out and work with architects and designers outside of the tabletop industry. These collaborations were evident throughout the entire show. For example, Royal Doulton displayed their collaboration with Gordon Ramsey, and Vista Alegre debuted their Amazonia Collection, inspired by sister cultures of Portugal and Brazil.
Home Experiences: The ongoing themes of home experiences and family gatherings were present throughout the show. Product designs were centered around the communal nature of food, as well as the joy of shared cooking, dining, and drinking experiences at home. In addition, many wine glasses were featured to go along with the wine trend.
Mixed Materials and Textures: At multiple showrooms, product designs focused on mixed materials. This included textures like wood and gold accents. The overarching color scheme included pieces of the blue, green, and pink palettes, specifically emphasizing mint green and rich blue tones.
