BRISTOL, Pa., Oct. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lenox Corporation, America's leading brand of fine china, announces the introduction of an exquisite new design tabletop collection by Scalamandre, the legendary American textiles house. The collection will debut at New York's Fall Tabletop Market and will feature patterns inspired by Scalamandre's beloved fabrics and wall coverings.
Five Scalamandre signature designs were selected for a complement of dinnerware, stemware, flatware and giftware, among them the iconic Zebras that once graced the walls of Gino's restaurant in New York City; the perennially fresh Love Birds, one of Scalamandre's earliest and most beloved reproduction fabrics; Bouvier, a favorite of Jackie Kennedy adapted from a superb 18th century French design; Toile Tale, a fanciful Chinoisierie landscape of enchanting flowers, fretwork, figures, pagodas and parasols; and Stravagante, a hyper lush, ravishingly drawn Italian Baroque still life design.
Style, synergy and shared sensibilities brought America's first name in decorative fabrics to the attention of Lenox. "Lenox is thrilled to join Scalamandre to create a new tabletop and gift collection," said Lester Gribetz, President of Lenox. "Scalamandre represents the pinnacle of taste and tradition with unapologetic elegance and its distinctive blend of the classic and the new is as timeless as it is fresh."
"We are honored to be with Lenox and could not ask for a better partner to adapt our designs onto fine dinnerware," said Steven Stolman, President of Scalamandre. "Lenox has a great design pedigree and we needed a collaborator to develop a collection that reflects an understanding of pattern language, scale and color with an exacting attention to detail. Each pattern is handcrafted in the USA and we couldn't be more pleased with the Scalamandre by Lenox collection."
