New Driftstone and Pebblebrook mix and match for an artistic tabletop presentation
TOLEDO, OHIO, May 21, 2016 – (NYSE MKT: LBY) Libbey®, provider of complete tabletop solutions for its foodservice partners, unveils Driftstone and Pebblebrook patterns in its World® Tableware collection. Both patterns depict the organic, artisanal trend popular in culinary presentations today. Driftstone and Pebblebrook bring a natural visual to the tabletop, mimicking the colors of rivers and precious earthy gemstones. Each pattern is easily mixed and matched with other tableware for a stunning presentation.
Driftstone helps build a peaceful, eye-catching tabletop with river inspired colors. This pattern features a matte satin glaze finish, worn into a resilient smoothness. Neutral earth tones of onyx, sand, driftwood and granite create unique mix and match options. Available in plates, bowls, platters, cups and mugs, Driftstone offers organic-inspired versatility to the tabletop.
Inspired by the silky luster of a polished jewel, Pebblebrook shines like a Tiger’s eye. The multi-layered color glaze process produces a unique, hand-crafted look and no two items look exactly the same. Available in both organic and coupe shapes, Pebblebrook includes plates, bowls, platters and mugs.
Both patterns are made from fully vitrified porcelain body for durability and strength. Plus, each piece includes a glazed foot, allowing plates to be stacked without scratching.
“As artisanal and organic-themes continue to grow as trends, guests are seeking a more natural aesthetic when it comes to dining,” said Susan J. Dountas, director of foodservice marketing for Libbey Inc. “The unique pieces of Driftstone and Pebblebrook use natural beauty to create a refined tabletop.”
Both Driftstone and Pebblebrook will be available in early fourth quarter of 2016 with new colors added in 2017.
