Fiesta® Fact Sheet

The Homer Laughlin China Company’s™ Fiesta® Dinnerware brand features art deco styling and bold, bright colors.

It was originally designed by Frederick Hurten Rhead in 1936. Discontinued in 1973, Fiesta made resurgence in 1986, marking the brand’s 50th anniversary and the continuation of a contemporary inspired color palette, with each shade complementing one another.

Since 1936, a total of 49 colors were introduced into the line. Each year, the company continues its tradition of introducing a new color to the dinnerware collection.

The constant evolution of colors makes the brand appealing to a broad and widely varied audience, including not only Fiesta enthusiasts who have been supportive of the brand for generations, but also new fashion forward consumers who are looking to incorporate color and personality into their dining experiences. Today, Fiesta® Dinnerware is one of the leading dinnerware collections in casual tabletop, as well as a consistent leader in bridal registries.
