Favorite Coasters and Linens


In honor of the beer-tasting party Max has coming up later today, I’ve rounded up some coasters and linens to help you keep your wood furniture drip- and ring-free. One of my favorite gifts was a set of Jonathan Adler zodiac coasters that Grace gave me one Christmas. Each coaster has a different zodiac sign, and I love asking guests for their sign and then giving them their matching coaster! (Yes, it can sometimes be annoying to come over to my house.) — Amy Azzarito

    I always tell my husband that using a coaster is like a gift to posterity… thanks for all these lovely choices! We currently have a beautiful brown glass set for our coffee table made by local artists Dick and Amy Engler. I love that each one is different. http://www.englerglass.com/COASTERS.html

    I just bought 2 of the Celestial ones from Anthro a couple of weeks ago and then went again yesterday to add 2 more to my collection + buy 4 as a gift. They are really gorgeous in person and fun to mix/match colors to your decor. Love them.

    Coasters are one of my “things:” Those things that always seem completely unnecessary at first, but once furnishings are in place, these seem so very needed.
    I am definitely lusting after the geometric wood cut ones on here.
    I also can’t say enough about how much I adore cloth napkins. It is amazing how much personality can be expressed just in these simple touches.

    My grandmother always insisted that we use coasters in her home, and now that we’re grown up, we have them in our own home. We’re currently loving our slate ones from Crate and Barrel, but those olive wood ones are beautiful.
    I agree with Katie, since we’ve switched to cloth napkins, I can’t imagine using anything else. We are looking for napkin rings though, if you have any to recommend (or diy?).
