Fiesta Dinnerware Introduces Its 50th Color – Mulberry

Newell, West Virginia – (January 9, 2018) – Homer Laughlin is proud to announce the Fiesta® Dinnerware brand’s 50th color since its introduction in 1936. Fiesta’s 2018 color is Mulberry, a rich, jewel-tone shade of purple with a red cast.

Fiesta is debuting its new color at The Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market®, January 9-16, 2018, in the Fiesta Dinnerware by Homer Laughlin China Showroom, Building 2, Floor 9, Suite 941.

“Mulberry complements every shade in the Fiesta color palette,” says Rich Brinkman, VP Sales & Marketing at Homer Laughlin. “It was important for us to add purple to our lineup. Mulberry is very on trend with what we’ve been seeing in fashion and home decor recently. It offers a lot of versatility.”

"Fiesta’s Mulberry is a flavorful, robust and full-bodied shade, tempting to the eye and taste buds,” says color expert Leatrice Eiseman,

colorexpert.com and eisemancolorblog.wordpress.com and author of The Complete Color Harmony, Pantone edition. “It’s a great pick-me-up next to neutrals and a terrific companion to so many other colors on the tabletop, including vineyard greens, honeyed yellows and chocolate browns.”

At any given time, Fiesta Dinnerware has 14 or 15 colors in its spectrum. With the addition of Mulberry, Tangerine and Claret are retiring. Tangerine was in production since 2003. Claret was in production since 2016.
