Homegrown ceramics brand Table Matters has a truly mindboggling range of designs on offer, from pastel pink unicorn patterns to more traditional line art and the calming Blue Wave range (depicted in the image at the top of the page). Our personal favourite is the Camellia collection, which sports a rather soothing floral look. If you’re aiming for a cosy, dreamy CNY spread, these plates and bowls are the way to go.

One of the bolder tableware shops out there, Lovera Collections sells plates and bowls in striking patterns and shapes, playing around with botanical motifs and traditional patterns. The shop’s solid-colour pieces come with a twist, too, presenting ridges, curves and charming textures.

Proudly local, Supermamma‘s porcelain plates are undeniably Singapore-inspired, mixing iconic views with batik art in the form of classic blue and white tableware. Other porcelain series include the bold and beautiful Nanyang Porcelain, which pays homage to Southeast Asia with its bright colours and Peranakan patterns.
