In an effort to expand access to the upcoming New York Tabletop Show on April 13-16, Forty One Madison will launch 41 Madison Live!, a multi-day livestream event hosted by Adam Glassman, creative director for O, The Oprah Magazine and Bloomingdaleâ€™s home fashion director Kelley Carter. The new online feature will help further unite the industry as a response to travel restrictions brought on by the pandemic.
41 Madison Live! will unveil a host of new showrooms, products, services and renovations that have been brewing at Forty One Madison for the past year. Glassman and Carter will tour showrooms, interview brand spokespeople about new collections, and explore new building offerings such as MEET on Madison, creative and innovative meeting and event space, and on-site restaurant Markâ€™s Off Madison, by former Barneysâ€™ chef Mark Straussman.
â€œOur brands have been busy behind the scenes and we want to spotlight all of the newness in a more tangible and engaging way,â€ said Kristi Forbes, senior vice president and director of Forty One Madison. â€œWhile in-person visitors with appointments can expect enhanced safety guidelines, virtual attendees can effortlessly experience the excitement with 41 Madison Live!â€
In connection with 41 Madison Live! and as an extension of his role as 2021 honorary chair of Gift for Life, the industryâ€™s sole charitable organization, Glassman also will kick-off an industry-wide fundraiser benefitting Godâ€™s Love We Deliver. The virtual benefit, titled #TableTogether with Adam Glassman, will include an auction of celebrity-designed tablescapes. as well as an exclusive â€œAsk Adamâ€ virtual meet and greet with Glassman on Thursday, April 15.
