Zafferano America, the exclusive North American distributor of lighting and glassware designs from Italy’s Federico de Majo, has created a new tableware division led by industry veteran Chris Collins.
The company debuted several new dinnerware collections, including Reablu, Perle, Stone, Spirale and Graffito, at the recent Atlanta Market.
Zafferano has acquired a new ceramic factory in Gallese, Italy, where it is producing its new dinnerware with shapes and designs fashioned using Italian traditions. An Italian bisque firing technique makes the expanded dinnerware lines both durable and beautiful, the company said.
“Our tableware division celebrates new and expanded dinnerware collections that are both designed and handmade in Gallese,” said Collins, vice president of sales and marketing for tableware. “We created these designs to stand on their own and also to round out our existing lines and our increasingly popular glassware and cordless lighting. We now have everything you need to design the perfect tablespace and complete your story.”
Here’s more about the tableware introductions, all designed and produced in Italy. Pieces in each collection are chip-resistant and safe for oven, microwave and dishwasher:
Reablu: A blue-gray glazed stoneware with a finish both stylish and rustic, Reablu shows off its true Italian heritage.
Perle: Inspired by and complementing Zafferano America’s award-winning Perle colored glassware, Perle dinnerware is a clean-looking, stackable collection available in four bold colors.
Stone: This fiery and brightly glazed stoneware collection features a rim of handpainted design and a unique reactive glaze.
Spirale: This is a bold, solid-colored dinnerware collection designed to not only complement but build on the existing Zafferano America lines with chargers, mugs, small bowls and other pieces.
Graffito: Offered in a beautiful pure white and a trend-forward vibrant Zafferano green, Graffito is one of a kind. With uniquely sculpted accents on the rims and signature designs on the underbelly of the dinnerware, the line is reflective of the skillfulness of the Italian artisans who craft each piece.
Zafferano America is the exclusive distributor of products from Treviso, Italy-based Zafferano Srl for Canada, Mexico and the United States. Zafferano collections include cordless lamps, custom lighting, decorative glasswork and tableware for designers, retail, hotels and restaurants.
