The table is the center of the home, at least so believed Russel Wright, the early 20th-century industrial designer. The modernist home in Garrison he called Manitoga served as his retirement home, and continues to serve as Russel Wright Studios’ headquarters. Two of his tableware lines are still available. The American Modern ceramic dinnerware from 1939 is said to be the best-selling dinnerware of all time, and is available by special order. Recently rereleased is a line of early plastic dishware from 1953 called Residential. It’s made of melamine and it’s readily available online. Better yet, see it in person. Visit the store at Manitoga, and tour the historic landmark and its woodland gardens.
