Sub-par cooking skills shouldn’t stop you from wowing people with your design sense

Designed to flip the ordinary into something fun, the Tie Set tableware collection from luxury juggernaut Hermes is an absolute joy on the eyes. Inspired by the micro motifs of renowned designer Philippe Mouquet, the Tie Set mischievously plays with dimensions and shapes. From a distance, the dishes and cups appear to be colored with a single hue, but step a little closer and you’ll see an explosion of interlacing, multi-colored squares and scattered “H” motifs. There are over 20 different designs and colors, so go crazy.

M/F, Siam Paragon, Rama 1 Rd. 02-129-4800.


Ceramic plates and bowls are great, but if you really want to be considered among Bangkok’s hipster elite you need to serve expensive food on a sturdy wooden cutting board (like legions of the city’s restaurants already do). Pew’s well-built and rustic-feeling cutting boards fit the bill nicely and come in a range of textures and styles to show off the different types of wood they use. If you really want to go all-out, order an exotic charcoal side-burned wooden board or rectangular walnut wood cutting board—crafted to the dimensions of your choosing.

Widely recognized for its original Unikko flower prints, Marimekko is the face of Finnish design for everyone in the know. Through a full-scale line of home decor items, the brand’s Unikko prints are found across dishes, coffee mugs and even adorable tea pots. Beyond its beloved flower prints, Marimekko’s designs also draw on other nature-inspired patterns, like the gingko leaf designs on its Finnish Veljekset Jungle line.

Quattro Design

Any good Thonglor dinner party should be about tasteful tableware as much as tasty food. Thailand’s own Quattro Design makes the task of looking trendy a little less headache-inducing. Its decor items were lining Soi Tararom’s sexiest apartments long before Ikea came to town—not that they are in the same league. The brand’s new collection of royal bone china is some of its prettiest work yet. Those elegant black swirls, we’re told, are inspired by Che Kung, the ancient Chinese military commander with a knack for matching patterns and prints. The collection includes tableware set and a set of tea cups.

912/3 Sukhumvit Soi 55 (Thonglor), 02-714-7806.


It’s not a party unless you’re popping bottles of absurdly expensive wine, right? But dumping a 10,000-baht splash of Merlot into a cheap-o wine glass from Big C is a bit of a no-no around sophisticated types. Go with the luxury crystal sets from Lucaris instead. The brand melds Asian design influences and German innovation together for some of the best glassware found in Thailand. The glasses feature laser-cut rims, high-quality glass and oversized bowls, which are all said to help your special-occasion bottle actually taste like it’s supposed to.
