Modern Coasters: Like Jewelry for the Coffee Table
One home trend that will never go out of style is taking good care of your furniture. Modern coasters both protect furniture surfaces and add style to empty tabletops. Coasters are ideal on kitchen countertops, bar carts and dining tables (especially when dining sans table linens). Don't stop in the traditional dining spaces, though—protect all your furniture by keeping a few extra sets around the house. In the living room, set a couple out on the coffee table as a decorative element, and stow spares in a storage ottoman, TV stand drawer or side table. When using upholstered ottomans or plush poufs as side tables, first create a stable resting spot for drinks with a coffee table tray. Add coasters to protect the surface of the platter. It's also a good idea to keep one or two on your nightstand for glasses of water or mugs of herbal bedtime tea. With materials ranging from natural acacia wood to on-trend white marble to classic frosted glass, you can find the right modern coaster set to match your interior aesthetic.
