Much as we like kitsch and drama, we like it interspersed with something clean and candy-coloured. Studio Kiklee is the latter and we love its handcrafted products and exquisite craftsmanship that are all available online. The plates, bowls, trays, cheese boards, aprons and more are complete model material; they’re picture perfect.
Just one look at the website and you’ll know that everything is a labour of love. Sure enough, founder Simrat Kohli has put a lot of thought into this venture. Thanks to her background into decor and styling, she makes sure that not only is the quality Kiklee tableware impeccable but everything even comes together like romantic poetry. Obviously, who else would appreciate the power of presentation than a stylist who’s worked for years for magazine covers.
We’ve seen many brands do what Kiklee is trying but its tableware and linen are a soothing sight. It is everything we need to bring a semblance of colour coded symmetry to our otherwise messy house. Their adorable bowls, for instance, look like they were meant to forever hold our chips and ice-cream. The cake stand is a vision straight out of our high tea dream. The cute aprons are exactly what we want to be wearing while we whip up a batch of cupcakes.
Clearly, we have no fixed favourites here because love doesn’t play one thing over the other.
