Anthropologie Celestial Coaster Set

To guard against staining water rings and discoloration, a coaster set is necessary, but it’s a rookie mistake to sacrifice all fashion for function. Anthropologie sells a quartet that protects the vulnerable finish of coffee and accent tables while serving as a dazzling addition to living room décor.

Each square is handmade by Minneapolis potter Kerry Brooks, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces with charming variations in design.  The soft, natural gradients of iridescent color give the clay and glass creations a quality that is at once ethereal and earthy. A smoothing glaze contains the miniature bursts and shields their sparkling anatomies from wear and tear.

If inspiration moves you, mix and match colors for a collection that is customized to your home’s palette. These expressive plaques work well propped reverently upon wall shelving or as eye-catching accents in a kitchen backsplash.

Rookie no more.

Top color picks:
·         tie dye
·         milk & honey
·         violet

  1. ha! we must have similar habits of frequenting the home section of antro! i have these in both the dark teal and the purple. they've held up really well, and i love the way each one looks unique and special. it's important to have coasters that one isn't ashamed to leave out on the table.
