Whilst it was formerly the bedroom, it appears that the kitchen has now become the hottest room in the house.
Lockdown or not, there’s no denying that we’re all giving our homes a little TLC as we’re spending more time indoors. We’re also cooking a lot more (and sharing that we’re cooking a lot more on Instagram), and so a whole need and demand has arisen for beautiful kitchenware.
Yet whilst we used to roam department stores and interior decor haunts (and maybe even JJ market) for all of these things, options were pretty limited when shops were forced to close. We’re excited to see these open again, despite constant scanning and location tracking, but we’ve also started a love affair with another shopping platform meanwhile.
Kitchenware on Instagram: did you know this was a thing? And did you know this was a great thing?
Here, we’ve put together a selection of kitchenware we’ve found on the ‘gram, with plenty more where they came from. Surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?), there is actually a massive market for homeware on Instagram in Bangkok. There’s a lot of ceramics and a lot of Korean and Japanese interior design goods. What’s even greater about the whole shebang is that there’s oft a unique piece you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else.
Whether you’re on the lookout for the perfect breakfast plate or are simply seeking some new home inspo, scroll ahead for some of our top picks. And then feel free to explore for yourself. A whole world awaits.

If you enjoy living life on the edge, let it be reflected in your glassware. We love this tilted glass (THB 300) for the sheer illusion of it being on the verge of falling off whatever surface it may be positioned on. Asymmetric, contemporary, and very cool. Keeps it real.
We all know somebody who needs this bowl (THB 490). A perfect companion to midnight snacking, it’s hard to imagine how we ever ate instant noodles before this bowl. Designed to fit exactly one packet of instant noodles, it’s a beautiful piece of crockery where form really follows function (there’s a bowl lid for when you wait for your noodles to cook). You could also eat other meals from this dish, but why would you want to?
It’s easy for heavily patterned plates to feel overwhelming to eat from. Bringing a splash of colour that is in no way intimidating, we love these colour plates (THB 290 each) for their unassuming yet uplifting vibe.
Is it a llama? Is it an alpaca? Is it a kangaroo? These are all the questions you could ask yourself while eating watermelon from this animal plate (THB 550). Bright and cheery.
Ceramic and warm wood are a beautiful match for any kitchen. This lemon squeezer (THB 440) will ensure your lemon juice is not only the freshest, but the most beautifully presented, too. Pictured here, we also love the mortar and pestle set. Every Thai home needs a mortar and pestle set.
Looking for a way to elevate your desserts? Present them inside a glass cake dome (THB 420). No matter the taste, you’ll score high on ‘grammability, and if we’re entirely honest, in this day and age, that’s half your diner’s satisfaction anyway. Shop on.
