You may have already selected your preferred marble dining table, a chandelier to appoint the space, and some delectable dinnerware — but the carefully crafted ambiance would be spoilt by a haphazard collection of cutlery. To bring the entirety of your dining space into cohesion, we listed the five most attractive sets of flatware for your perusal here.
An abundance of gold and silver has always been regarded as a mark of prosperity and Singapore’s provider of bespoke lifestyle products for the sophisticated urbanite — AllThingsDeco, makes available the pictured four-piece flatware set to put the decadent sheen of gold or silver on your dining table. The handles of each fork, knife, spoon, and pair of chopsticks in the set are dipped in colour for a black or white accent that can be emblazoned with the your choice of words.
China Pottery previously made our list of dinnerware and provides a canteen of 30 pieces of stainless steel flatware that would be ideal as a gift, or for any host who needs a single set to equip six diners with the necessary tools for a meal, dessert, and the customary after-meal cup of caffeine. China Pottery’s pictured cutlery set is made from one of the highest-available grades of stainless steel, designed for perfectly balanced weight, and painstakingly polished to a mirror finish.
Ikea introduces a little-known innovation in the realm of plastic cutlery with the Tillagd 24-piece cutlery set, promising to drastically lengthen the lifespan of ordinarily single-use flatware and reduce the accumulation of plastic waste in the world. The Tillagd set consists of the required cutlery for a single-course meal — fork, knife, spoon, and teaspoon. All six pieces of each are composed from common plastic and coated with steel particles through a revolutionary process known as vacuum metallization, which renders the plastic cutlery dishwasher-safe, corrosion-resistant, and reusable.
With Samaria Cutlery’s presence in Malaysia exceeding its tenth year, eating out at some of the country’s popular restaurants — such as Dragon-I, Secret Recipe, and Kenny Rogers — may have brought you in contact with their offerings. Like the aforementioned 30-piece set from China Pottery, Samaria Cutlery’s own 30-piece stainless steel flatware set also makes for an appropriate housewarming gift, with the necessary cutlery for six guests to take on a single-course meal, desert, and a coffee or tea.
The standards of quality, attention to detail, and influence of the Villeroy & Boch name on iconic settings of earlier eras made it a contender in our list of knife sets — which is why it should come as no surprise that the same brand makes a reappearance in our lineup of cutlery. As expected for a brand synonymous with opulent quality, each piece of flatware is made from the 18/10 stainless steel and polished to a pristine and smooth finish.
