Mid-century designs from traditional materials in a modern table setting

The Circa collection of tableware from Royal Selangor updates mid-century designs with unconventional material pairing.

For years, pewter, a malleable metal alloy, has been seen as a traditional material that was at its height of popularity in the 19th century. Royal Selangor however, has been making great strides in updating and modernising the traditional material for a new audience. Over the last few years, the Malaysian company has produced exciting collections for the contemporary homeowner.


Circa is Royal Selangor’s latest collection for the modern tabletop, taking its cues from the mid-century modern design of the 1950s. By fusing the organic with manmade materials, the bold elegance of the Circa pieces are revealed in a combination of pewter accents and the dark purple-brown tones of Kulim wood.


The result is a sleek collection of tableware, with each piece exuding a sense of quiet sophistication. The pewter accents bring out the beauty of the natural wood, allowing the distinct colour of the Kulim wood to stand out against your setting. The Circa collection is also available in the ‘stripes’ series. Here, the Kulim wood is paired with the pale cream shades of rubber wood, and finished with pewter.

The Circa collection comprises of cheese knives, cheese boards, bottle coasters, salad servers, bowls, spice mills, wine chillers, salt & pepper shakers and vases.
