The new color is called Lemongrass and is a modern yellow green with a touch of acid. It was shown with a creamy vanilla color and a dark brown and it worked as a nice counterpoint to both. Pieces in this color will ship in June 2009.
The new shape dinnerware is available this month (in the eight colors shown) and is a rounded-corner square. It has the distinctive Fiestaware ridged bands around the edge and, while it is quite a serious departure from the very familiar round plates, it still is immediately recongnizable as Fiestaware product due to the colors and finish and overall weight of the plates.
