Ninaber van Eyben since 1917
On May 1 st of 1917, my grandfather, Gerrit Ninaber van Eyben, opened his boutique in crockery, crystal and luxury items at the Frederik Hendriklaan in The Hague. Much has happened since then: the shop moved, we expanded numerous times and next generations entered the family business.
Ninaber van Eyben expanded to include an import section in 1983, and about a decade later we started a branch for professional clients: VIP Projects. VIP Projects provides luxury hotels, restaurants, private airplanes and yachts with their desired décor and tableware. Since 2011, our store has been exclusively online.
There is one thing that hasn’t changed since 1917: our passion for gorgeous crockery and our love of dining in style and creating the appropriate atmosphere for each event. We still do this as a family: I work together with my wife Annemieke and my sister Hester. Together, we always strive to find the best quality in tableware for luxury hotels and restaurants as well as individuals. The two generations before us have always worked hard to perfect the skills required to create a perfect atmosphere – and they have handed them down to us, just like our love of this business.
