Tabletop broadens reach with line extensions

Line extensions were important elements in the tabletop market, with additions to existing collections expanding the reach as seen in the Barbara Barry line for Haviland, a follow-up to the crystal collection for Baccarat last season.
While design themes covered the waterfront, a sophisticated country casual with an almost contemporary air, emerged as a new influence.
And the Asian influence was more discreet, looking important in terms of shapes and understated motifs.
Wedgwood's English Cottage typified the more understated approach to floral motifs with a sophisticated cottage statement.
Pale blue, a continuing color favorite, and white set the tone for the Swedish Lodge collection of casual traditional design from Lenox.
