Recap: @LigneRosetKW’s gorgeous items and a special offer!

In February I featured one of my favorite furniture and home accessories store in Kuwait ,Ligne Roset,, located in the Creative Design Center. The feature is divided into three posts.

The first post featured the cups, the pots and decanters.

And then the plates, the bowls and the placemats

And lastly, we kept the best for last, the table accessories 

Don’t forget! Upon mentioning The Oven Experiments, Ligne Roset – Kuwait would like to offer you a gift for every purchase made for 50 KD and above at the store! The gifts items, which are extremely limited, are originally retailed for 40 – 60 KD, and that is quite the bargain. This offer will be valid until all gifts are gone. So hurry up!

Ligne Roset: the table accessories

And now we come to the final installment of Ligne Roset – Kuwait series and also my favorite! For previous posts, click here and here.

Today, I’ll feature some of their accessories for the dining table. Continuing with the quirky design philosophy, these rings, which are used under hot serving plates, can put all together like shown below.

Ligne Roset: the plates, the bowls and the placemats

If you missed my first feature on Ligne Roset – Kuwait, then click here.

From the cups and pots, we now move on to their tableware. Ligne Roset’s store in Kuwait offers a variety of choices of placemats, from cotton, leather to ceramic. Below is one of their cotton placemat option with white tableware.

Did you notice the detail under the sauce bowl? How cute is that! Under the dinner plate, there is also the same detail. Continue reading

Ligne Roset: the cups, the pots and the decanters

So now that I’m free, I have more time to explore and check out new places and stores, or places that I’ve always wanted to go to but never have. One of these store is Ligne Roset at the Creative Design Center, formerly known as the Seven Zones, in Shuwaikh. (Click here for map)

Nestled in a quiet corner in the center, Ligne Roset, who I thought only made furniture,  surprises you with a full home-ware selection from decorative accessories, lighting, rugs, textiles and of course their furniture collection. They are also quite known for their artful collaborations with both established and up-and-coming talents in contemporary design.

What caught my attention, besides the beautiful furniture and super cool lightings, is their dining and kitchen accessories. To do this place justice, I’ve divided this post into 3 different parts. There’s also a surprise my lovely readers at the end of this post, so scroll down.

Today, I’ll show you a glimpse of their cups, mugs, pots and the lovely decanters/jugs collection.

Midnight snacking – the baked potato

The other night, I tried to fool myself by convincing myself that a frozen yogurt parfait will be my dinner. By 9:30, I was hungry.

So I gave in and was about to make roasted veggies but remembered that I still have sour cream in the fridge, and this is when I decided I’m baking a potato! This dish, if you even can call it a dish, brings back childhood memories with my sisters. We used to have it a lot as kids and I loved it.

All you need to do is preheat an oven to 200 degrees Celsuis. Meanwhile, if you’re potato is extra large like mine, cut in half and pierce the cut side, and place on a baking tray. If you are using small potatoes, just pierce with a fork all over and place as is on the baking tray.

Bake the potato for 30 -45 minutes, or until you can easily pierce with a fork. In a bowl mix half a tub of sour cream (125 ml) with salt and pepper, chopped fresh herbs (I used thyme from my aerogarden) and cubed cheese of your preference.

Scoop out the potato flesh and mash with a fork and mix in the sour cream. Scoop it back in the hollowed potato skin and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until cheese has melted.
