Hampton collaborates with fashionable dinnerware designer Laurie Gates creating a colorful new line of beautifully designed flatware.
New York, NY June 2011 -Hampton, a leader in innovative flatware, teams up with "talked about" tableware designer Laurie Gates to debut the enchanting Laurie Gates by Hampton collection. The new series includes 21 flatware patterns (personally designed in Gate's California studio) to complement his playfully stunning, trend setting dinnerware.
"Laurie Gates by Hampton is an exceptional line that perfectly synergizes with and completes my popular dinnerware and tableware accessories," states Laurie Gates, President/CEO of Laurie Gates Inc. "I've always admired Hampton's creativity, passion and quality and am thrilled with the new flatware. We hope that this collection will elevate everyday meals into fine dining experiences," concludes Gates.
"We selected very recognizable designs within the Gate's line for our inspiration, such as Anna, Dekko, Grace, Hailey and Chloe," states Suso Balanza, Vice President of Sales for Hampton.
"And we didn't stop with the pattern, we also drew upon Gate's key color palates – offering both stainless steel and color handle options. There are many fine details in this flatware, and so many options for mixing and matching to complete a Laurie Gates' table. Even Laurie himself will mix and match – displaying an Anna plum handled 5-piece place setting with a plum Dekko plate for instance," explains Balanza.

- Dishwasher safe with a lifetime warranty.
- Estimated retail price is $159.99 for a 40-piece set. $79.99 for 20 piece set.
