EveryWare Global, one of the world’s leading marketers of dining and food preparation products, announced a key initiative to support the company’s transformation, growth and cultural development strategies.
The company changed its corporate name to The Oneida Group, leveraging the iconic dining brand and reflecting the company’s commitment to driving innovation in the dining experience. Anchor Hocking, a subsidiary of The Oneida Group, will continue to produce and market glassware to the consumer and specialty markets.
“Rebranding our company as The Oneida Group allows us to emphasize our long-standing leadership in dining and food preparation,” said Patrick Lockwood-Taylor, Chief Executive Officer. “We are building on our heritage and committed to delivering innovative additions to our portfolio of products. The Oneida Group is focused on creating value by designing, marketing and manufacturing the best dining and food preparation products in the world, providing the best service to our customers and growing our company efficiently and sustainably. This alignment of our brands is the next step in our growth strategy.”
The company’s principal brands have more than a century of customer trust and loyalty. Oneida, founded in 1848, has been a staple in homes, fine dining establishments, family restaurants and hotels for decades. The Oneida portfolio spans a broad range of products including the finest quality flatware, porcelain dinnerware, stainless steel and silverplate serving dishes and tableware. Anchor Hocking, by its predecessor company, began producing glassware in 1873 and today is a leading designer, marketer and manufacturer of quality consumer products that it sells to retail and specialty markets, hospitality channels, and original equipment manufacturers. Anchor Hocking manufactures nearly all of its products at the company’s facilities in the United States and markets its products internationally.
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.
The new Carr’s Hill line of hand-crafted pottery was created by Rebecca Wood for r. wood studio ceramics based in Athens, Georgia. Wood’s distinguished career in fine art and beautifully crafted pottery has spanned 25 years, and this new line of multi-functional tableware comes in two neutral colors, sky and cotton, which are ideal for the minimalist aesthetic of the modern kitchen.
The versatile Carr’s Hill line includes salad and dinner plates, a sugar and creamer set, and a series of cups and mugs which range in price from $30 to $50. You can view the collection at rwoodstudio.com.
French Bull has debuted its first holiday collection, a natural extension of the celebratory lifestyle brand’s LIVE VIVID® attitude. The collection comes packaged with dangling ornaments and gift tags, ready for gifting. The festive mix includes a Cookie Platter for Santa, a four piece dessert plate set in the brand’s cheery Dotty Tree pattern, four neatly wrapped spreaders in a candy-cane pattern and a set of two nesting storage containers in a merry ornament-inspired pattern for treats and left overs.
Jackie Shapiro says, “My favorites are the candy cane spreaders because of the sparkling dangling ornament around the set of four. Since nobody remembers who brought the wine, I think our customers will make a lasting impression with whomever they celebrate the season, and they will make fantastic stocking stuffers.”
