Every year, Tableware International selects a group of finalists in 17 different tabletop categories. This year, there were 274 different products under consideration from 148 different tabletop brands, and we are proud to announce that two of our distinct collections were selected as one of the finalists for the 17 different awards. Twenty-eight international judges assembled to select the finalists.
In most parts of the country, winter is not only coming, it's here. And as we look toward Christmas, Hanukah, New Year's and other frosty holidays, we'd like to show you a few of the essential tabletop collections that can help you make the most out of the winter months.
When we introduced the Playground collection a few years ago, our goal was to provide chefs with the platforms they need to express their creativity. After all, trends have been moving tabletop into a more whimsical, playful style for several years now.
By definition, "vintage" holds enduring interest. Whether it's a level of importance or quality, we hold on to things from the past because they tease our sentiments and remind us of whimsical memories.
It's no wonder we're seeing vintage trends in everything from fashion to furniture, and the tabletop is no different.
Everything begins somewhere.
Our love of play, of having fun, for example, begins when we're children. We find joy in discovering the color wheel. We learn to laugh at knock knock jokes. We can't wait for recess every day when we can go out to the playground. And it's this exact essence that's at the heart of the new Playground collection from Bauscher.
Sometimes you get pairs that don't make sense, but we all know from experience that when you put certain opposites together, magical things can happen. Salt and sugar. Oil and vinegar. Citrus and spice. Even peanut butter on hamburgers can make for an interesting dining experience.
BauscherHepp curated the Playground collection to provide options when plating. With unique construction and the potential for improvisation, tabletop can be like recess with Playground, and end users are starting to discover the impact this collection can have.
Added last year to our Purity collection, Purity Pearls provides a visually stunning and custom look, well-suited to a variety of tabletop applications.
