Tabletop, Chicago style.

IT'S THE SMALL DETAILS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE IN TABLETOP. At the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago this month, the newest dinnerware, glassware and flatware collections are notable for the obvious hand of the artist; for state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques that add strength or a unique finish; and for the imagination and innovation that presents familiar objects in brand new ways.--Allison Zisko
