The first issue of Progressive Tableware Worldwide has launched, reaching a global readership and featuring news, views and in-depthfeatures. The new glossy magazine embraces the latest trends and explores the impact of the pandemic on dining, with optimistic views for the future from both retail and hospitality sectors.
As publishers of Progressive Housewares, Progressive Gifts & Home, organisers of the Excellence In Housewares Awards and The Greats Gift Retailer Awards, we’ve enjoyed a long history of being at the heart of homewares product retailing, both domestically and internationally. Our team travels to trade shows far and wide, and it has become evident in recent years that the tableware, homewares and giftware markets are as close as ever – as is evidenced at many of the industry’s events, from London to Chicago and from Frankfurt to Hong Kong. To this end, we felt it was a great time to have our own input to the tableware category, taking advantage, for those involved, of our incredibly wide circulation of major, online and independent retail buyers.
Retailer interviews include prestigious London brand David Mellor’s James Lawless, who emphasises the importance of face-to-face customer interaction when it comes to choosing cutlery [see page 21]. On the other side of the world, Tara Solberg, co-owner of gia Global Honoree Award winning retailer Few & Far in NSW, Australia shares the latest chapter in her retail journey [see page 13]. Reflecting on an Australian summer, Tara provides some fascinating insights into the best-selling tableware for outdoor living.
The importance of the right glassware is explored in PTW’s market focus feature, which recognises the rise of home bars [see pages 30-31].
The need for mindfulness and serenity, or for a touch of luxury and glamour are some of the Global trends that are explored in our ‘Dressing the table’ feature [see pages 14-17].
Some leading names in HoReCa look to the future [see page 33], while Paul and Valda Goodfellow at G&G Goodfellows highlight their approach to serving the service industry with superlative tableware.
Meanwhile, Mumbai based Seeba Group – manufacturing partner for a host of leading brands – recognises three and half decades of change and development [see pages 26-27].
Royal Doulton explores how it is reinvigorating casual city dining for an international audience [see pages 22-23].
