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.

Flower blossom tea

My afternoon tea time. Flower blossom tea with an oats and dates cookie

Doesn’t this remind you of the scene in the film Marie Antoinette when she gets excited about the flower blossoming, which was a gift from China? Or the Chinese Ambassador?

Well it is quite exciting to watch as the flower blooms in the hot water. It is just lovely!

Singapore: Episode 5

Day 5: Started work at the museum after brunch (an egg sandwich from Toast)

After leaving the museum, I went straight to Orchard Road to buy a few things I needed. After doing my shopping at ION Orchard mall, I decided to have dinner at The Marmalade Pantry.

I ordered a spicy tomato sauce with beans

Very comforting after my (beauty products) shopping spree and very delicious!

Then for my main meal, I had grilled to perfection salmon accompanied with a cold noodle salad.

As I was heading to the metro station, conveniently located in that same mall,  I passed by TWG tea salon, which I recognized from the tea bags we get complimentary in the hotel room. They had a display of French pastries, all infused with their tea.

I asked for a box of tea-infused macarons, which I’m currently enjoying with TWG’s jasmine tea.

I can’t wait until my parents get here so I can explore Chinatown, especially that the Chinese New Year is on the way, Arab Street and Little India!
