The Homer Laughlin China Company Unveils the Cottage Collection


Nostalgic and inviting collection to be introduced at NRA 2015

Newell, WV — Homer Laughlin, part of the HLC Family of Companies, is pleased to present the Cottage collection, a handcrafted dinnerware line that evokes comfort, joy and a bit of nostalgic charm. This beautiful and distinctive new collection will be introduced at the 2015 National Restaurant Association (NRA) show in May. Homer Laughlin’s dinnerware is designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. in their factory in Newell, West Virginia.

The Cottage collection harkens back to simplicity, warmth and family meals remembered. On a durable, resilient ivory body with a distinct scalloped edge is a carefully hand-applied stippling of blue or brown “spice” — so every cup, bowl, plate and platter has its own charm. As with all Homer Laughlin ivory-body products, Cottage is dishwasher-safe and oven-to-table ready.

“We see an emerging market for Cottage, as diners yearn for a touch of home and restaurateurs focus on offering classic fare,” said Gene Williamson, vice president of sales for the Foodservice Division of HLC Inc. “We wanted to capture that essence with this pattern. We’re confident that dining establishments across the country will love both the durability and inviting beauty of Cottage.”

Make your restaurant feel like a home away from home with handcrafted Cottage dinnerware from the Homer Laughlin China Company.
