Uniquely crafted and one-of-a-kind, the Pyrex® Watercolor Collection™ transforms everyday Pyrex glass into beautiful works of art. Bathed in gorgeous blue swirled motifs with a vibrant design, this collection is perfect to add a personal touch to home entertaining and decorating or to give as a gift.
Born from the interior design trend of incorporating artisanal pieces into the home and catering to the influence of the blue and white color story, the Pyrex Watercolor Collection evokes the motion – and emotion – of the surging sea by using liquid-in-liquid colorant injection technology to infuse color into clear molten glass. The process creates beautiful, artistic wisps of color in original patterns within the glass.
“I am thrilled to release this collection that provides our consumers with unique, expressive pieces,” said Austin Rothbard, President of the Americas at World Kitchen, LLC. “Each one-of-a-kind dish incorporates blue bursts similar to releasing a fountain pen in water. The combination of functionality with beauty will allow owners to proudly display food in creative ways.”
The Watercolor Collection also maintains the same standards of the Pyrex glass quality that’s been trusted for generations and loved around the world, with all pieces featuring a non-porous surface that does not absorb food odors, flavors or stains, and are safe to use in the microwave, pre-heated oven, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher.
The collection is now available in-store at Target and Macy’s, also available online at ShopWorldKitchen.com. Individual pieces range from $7.99-$12.99. Sets are also available and range from $24.99-$29.99.

World Kitchen, the company behind iconic housewares brands such as Pyrex®, Corningware®, Corelle®, Snapware®, Baker’s Secret® and Chicago Cutlery®, is preparing to launch several exciting new products in 2016. A rich history combined with its focus on global innovation ensures that World Kitchen’s newest products will meet consumer demands in the ever-changing home and kitchen space.
“World Kitchen is creating tomorrow’s nostalgia with new products from our beloved brands,” said Kris Malkoski, President Global Business & Chief Commercial Officer at World Kitchen, LLC. “We are putting an increased focus on reaching Millennials and are continually investing in innovation to create top-of-the-line products that not only deliver outstanding functionality, but also spark an emotional connection with consumers.”
To debut the new 2016 products, World Kitchen took over a New York City townhouse and transformed it into a unique showcase of the latest and greatest kitchen product innovations, then brought more than 200 people to the house for a preview before March’s International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.
World Kitchen’s leading-edge launches include:
- Market Street New York Corelle™ The latest dinnerware line from the Corelle brand brings to life the historic charm and refined taste of the brand’s birthplace – Corning, New York. This premium collection combines superior quality and craftsmanship with six new, sophisticated designs that are equal parts inspiring and durable.

- Pyrex Gadgets: Coming this spring, Pyrex Gadgets help write the next chapter for an iconic kitchen brand. Building on 100+ years of trust and innovation, this line was designed to simplify cooking tasks, by saving prep time and valuable drawer space. Each streamlined design is also dual material for both flexibility and firm control.
“Food remains a focus for socializing, and Millennials are pioneers in the kitchen – deconstructing recipes, substituting ingredients, prepping meals early for the week and then sharing photos of their creations with friends and family over their social channels,” said Malkoski.

REVOL celebrated its 10 year anniversary in the U.S. market by showcasing a new line of porcelain products, unveiling a new website, hosting social media contests and expanding further into the U.S. food service industry. Tenaya Da Silva, National Sales and Marketing Manager of REVOL, attests to the company’s success and notes that 2015 has been one of the best years in retail and growth for the company – something the company intends on continuing.
“We are celebrating our 10 years [in the US] for the rest of the year…and we are really happy about that. We’re excited because we continue to expand our channels and this [2015 anniversary] is an example of us growing in a healthy way,” notes Da Silva. “Besides this anniversary, we are celebrating over 250 years of history in a few years and have survived many other companies…. We lasted because we are a trusted company and have a unique product.”
REVOL, the French serve-ware company founded in 1768 by Pierre and Madeleine Revol, opened the Georgia-based US distribution branch in 2005 offering high-end porcelain to the American market. Da Silva admits that while three or four years ago the company had some slight difficulties, that changed as the company has moved into big channel stores, as well as staying supportive of smaller retailers, while dedicating more time to growing its e-commerce business. She says, “Lots of people like to pick REVOL for their stores, and since we are still growing, it makes us special.”
This has been working as the company has seen continued growth since 2010. “We now have a new warehouse to use, and our inventory has never been so good,” says Da Silva. “As a company, we’ve all done more in communication and with our new website – it means a lot of digital marketing.”
REVOL’s first notable digital marketing event motivated customers to post pictures of themselves cooking with their REVOL products at #REVOLUSA10YEARS. “This is something we haven’t done in the past…. We’re working on communication more.” The streamlined website, according to Da Silva, will engage customers and provide easier access to the diverse line of products that REVOL is unleashing.
The Arborescence Collection is the new table top line that is inspired by nature, with a range of dinner ware that is made out of porcelain, but maintains a natural, organic wood-grain finish. This line is both rustic and elegant, and nothing similar to this line has ever been created so far, explains Da Silva. With a selection of dinner, dessert and bread plates, cups, bowls and mugs, along with coupe and rectangular plates, they each come in Ivory (off-white), Licorice (black) and Pepper (black and white). This high-end line is microwave safe, dishwasher safe and can be used as a placement or serving piece.
Another addition to REVOL’s offerings is the extension of its bakery line, Les Naturels Collection, with a new pie dish, square dish and Madeline mold. Influenced by the company’s mantra of “bake differently” these new baking dishes are nonporous—preventing them from absorbing fats, odor or bacteria. Coming in colors such as Creme and Sesame Grey, the baking dishes are an elegant oven-to-table solution for home bakers wanting to impress guests. “We are really excited about this line and the new colors,” says Da Silva. Gift boxes and tags are supplied with any purchases.
Early next year, REVOL is releasing the Color Lab Collection, a line of espresso and tea cups, snack boards, gourmet boards and board trivet kits. This hand-glazed line of serve-ware sports a selection of colors created in the company’s color-laboratory. Color options include Citrus Yellow, Capucine Orange, Amaranth Red, Fjord Blue, Stratus Grey and Celadon Green. “These are six new colors…and we’re really excited about that,” says Da Silva.
The high-end, porcelain line is not only being revealed to retailers, but to the food service industry as well, continuing the company’s expansion into the restaurant industry with celebrity chef-inspired ranges that complement REVOL serve-ware with gourmet food options and chef-inspired ideas that customers can try out at home. According to Da Silva, food service providers are using Arborescence when presenting stylized dishes, along with other lines the company offers. According to REVOL, this has magnified the culinary creations of independent chefs and stars of the industry.
REVOL is focused on the future with plans to grow on the success it has seen in the last year. While the company relied heavily on word-of-mouth advertising last year, this year will see more online and offline events with a focus on local, not global. This is intentional since the company wants to maintain healthy growth and not balloon too quickly. Da Silva says, “We want partners that are smaller independent retailers in ambassador roles, and give them more power.”
