Turning Tables is a new concept from boarding-school friends, Divya Kedia and Kritika Sharma. The idea for Turning Tables came from (frequently) entertaining friends and family at home during the Covid-19 circuit-breaker. These at-home affairs were more than just about food – they were elegantly created experiences brought together by aesthetically pleasing table-settings, gorgeous tableware, and thoughtful detail.
Encouraged by their friends to do more with their design sensibilities, the two friends began experimenting with tableware. They always found themselves borrowing things from one another, to create exciting tablescapes for their guests – just the beginning of things to come!
This is their first collaborative effort since moving to Singapore. Divya is a mother with a beautiful, young daughter named Amaya. She runs a successful home and kids décor brand called All Things Felt, which helps support the handicraft industry of her home country, Nepal. Kritika is a brand communication specialist with a keen eye for design. She has worked with an array of lifestyle and fashion brands in India and Singapore in the past.
Both friends vividly remember frequent dinner parties at their homes, from when they were little girls – with special crockery being taken out of the buffet, and the dinner table being set up more elaborately than usual. Hailing from a rich Indian culture in which people love to host and entertain, they too started conceiving and creating different moods for guests at their homes (away from home!).
The small apartments (with even smaller storage spaces) they lived in and exorbitant price tags on tableware convinced them there had to be a more sustainable way of hosting friends and family. With the aim of making entertaining effortless and sustainable, Divya and Kritika got together to develop a unique design language doing what they love most – sourcing stunning tableware from all over the world, artfully designing them in distinct themes, and passing on the experience. They believe tablescaping should be therapeutic and entertaining our loved ones should be fun, and hope that you can do the same with their ideas, one table at a time.
