Whether it’s plates, crockery, cutlery, wine glasses or accessories, getting your table looking great – not just for guests – is fun and a bit therapeutic. There’s some gorgeous tableware in Singapore. I am personally loving the semi rustic pottery, it’s smooth enough to be fine dining but also works for casual get togethers.
House of Anli – Tableware from around the world
“Memorable dinner parties start with a beautifully laid dining table”. So says Panagiotis Lynas, co-founder of furniture store House of AnLi. We find out why one Expat Living reader turned to House of AnLi to buy tableware to host a special dinner party.

“I was looking for a store to help me make my home more sophisticated but not over-decorated. There was a lack of harmony in my dining room – it wasn’t a great space for entertaining or making memories with friends and family.
House of AnLi worked with me to identify well-priced, perfectly coordinated pieces in store. This included all the tableware, a Versailles dining table, a bench and six Marseille chairs. Even the table linens the team suggested helped give everything the professional and organised look I was after amongst the chaos of the kids’ toys and baby gear!
House of AnLi stocks gorgeous dinnerware from around the world; you’ll find handmade cutlery sets, serving tools, sommelier tools and carving knives, for example. They’re all created by Jean Dubost for Laguiole, adding a luxurious and elegant finish to any table. Tableware includes ceramics and glassware by Costa Nova from Portugal, too, plus 100 percent Belgian linen from Libeco and wooden serving boards from Dutch Deluxes. So, pop in to fill up your home and table!
House of AnLi has two locations in Tanglin Mall (163 Tanglin Road), on Levels 2 and 3.

Originals – Dinnerware and table settings
Originals has everything you need to get your dining table looking cool, from gorgeous faux flowers to vases, glasses, crockery and cutlery. And, of course, the dining table and chairs too! What we’re really excited about is the store’s new Mud Australia dinnerware. These are the ultimate table-toppers; each piece is crafted by hand, which means every plate or bowl you put on your table has been handled with the utmost attention to detail and care.
Mud Australia was founded in 1994 in Sydney by artist Shelley Simpson. She combines handmade processes with minimalist clean lines, resulting in pieces that are one-of-a-kind. Function is still the name of the game, though; you can use this dinnerware every night of the week, and the pieces are left lightly sanded and unglazed, so they wear beautifully. What’s more, the soft hues make them timeless and flexible, so you can mix them with any tableware, tablecloths or dining accessories.

These quality, luxury products will make you feel like you’re on holiday when you’re home! The combinations and colours will give your dining table an edge every day of the week – and of course for dinner parties.
