I’ve always been an advocate for well designed home goods and even more of an advocate for home goods that are reasonably priced. Muji does this best. They are constantly rolling out products that are thoughtfully designed and made to last.
Last week, I stopped in at Muji for a few travel supplies and I left with a set of stainless steel flatware. We’ve been looking for flatware for over two years now. Our criteria, as always, was simple:
-minimal, sleek design
-not too large
Before fully committing to a forever flatware set, I like to buy 1 set (salad fork, dinner fork, butter knife, teaspoon, tablespoon) and use it for a few weeks. This is when we assess everything: Does it fit nicely in your hand? Does it wash well? Does it function for everyday needs? At some point, usually within the first few uses, I’ll know if it’s right or not. Many flatware sets have fallen short. Until now. The Muji stainless steel flatware meets all of our criteria and they offer many different sizes. I’m always in need of a tiny fork to pull olives out of a jar or an extra long spoon to reach the bottom of a tall glass.
I’ve always found Kenya Hara’s design philosophy inspiring, so It’s no surprise we found our everyday flatware at Muji. It was well worth the wait.
