Set a memorable modern tabletop with these five strikingly original cutlery designs. Just as important as the food being served is the functionality and beauty of the utensil that delivers it, and we think these designs are sure to please at your next dinner party.
Stainless steel may be the modern flatware standard, but warm-toned metals are making a comeback and we love this line designed by Cutipol, a Portuguese company schooled in the fine art of cutlery craftsmanship.
Flatware gets a distinctively Dutch touch with this set of utensils by Richard Hutten for Royal VKB, which give the staid, straight lines of basic silverware a playful peephole. The stainless steel set is one of the iD / Cutlery collections from designers which also include Gijs Bakker, Atelier Bow Wow, and Ineke Hans.
The elongated stems of this modern cutlery set suggest chopsticks with the function of Western utensils. Choose among five types of wood handles, including ones in wenge and teak.
This chic, reusable cutlery is made from organic, food-safe bamboo and water-based adhesives, and finished with premium natural oils. Set the perfect picnic table in safe, natural style.
Designed by Clara Del Portillo, the Natural cutlery line mixes the age old elegance of silver with the nobel material of wood creating a warm and modern offering.
