DETAILSQua presents the coaster, set of 4 from the Peranakan collection. It serves as a unique and localised-themed housewarming gift, and ideal for both home and office use.
The early Peranakans adopted a practice of incorporating expensive decorative ceramic tiles into the interior and exterior of their houses. These decorative tiles, usually in floral motifs, added both pastel and vibrant colours into their Victorian-style houses that reflect the East meets West blend of the Straits Chinese. With the march of time and modernization in Singapore, the production of these tiles in Singapore slowly diminished.
This original Peranakan Collection aims to preserve and present the finest appreciation of these classical motifs. Combining with the lustre of lacquer, the Peranakan Collection is the first in the world that blends the Straits Chinese decorative tiles into a single uniquely-crafted piece.
