Take Nothing for Granite

There's a downside to enjoying a cold beverage: every time you want to take a sip, you have to detach that flimsy coaster that's stuck to the bottom your glass. It's no wonder folks would rather put up with coffee table rings and mix-ups than bother keeping a set at home. It's about time coasters muscled-up. These no-nonsense, boldly designed coasters are handmade and assembled from solid, salvaged granite slabs and recycled rubber, making them the kind of sleek and sturdy piece anyone would be happy to slide beneath their favorite drink. Bottoms up! Handmade in New Hampshire. Sold as a set of four coasters.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

New Hampshire

Arra David and Anne Johnson want everyone to get stones. So the longtime New England residents replace each smooth rock they harvest from the water with a rough one from a quarry that will eventually become a worn beauty in its own right. (All the wood they use in their designs is ethically forested, too.) Once their bounty is gathered, they sit down with a group of dedicated artisans they lovingly call "rockers" to handcraft their uniquely beautiful household items and barware. "We all work together as a closely knit family," says Arra. "We all put our hearts, brains, muscles, and fingertips into everything we build."

Comments about Man Coasters - Set of 4:

These are really unique and 'manly' but a bit heavy for most people and they are made of a solid granite so they don't absorb moisture. Not sure how they will work for drinks but they look great and he was happy with them.

      Comments about Man Coasters - Set of 4:

      I have a friend who is a bit hard to buy for. I loved the title "Man Coasters" so sort of as a joke, I gave him these. They are heavy and attractive. The rubber around the edges detracts from the attractiveness a little bit but it's mandatory for non-slippage and it's thin enough to not dominate the design. My friend liked them a lot, and I will likely buy a set for myself.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Kudos to the packaging department. I receive so many items in the mail that are left to flop around in the larger package. All of the items I purchased were packed firmly and safely. I appreciate the effort!

                An inch thick chunk of granite with rubber edges and feet.

                These are heavy and durable - they are not a flimsy set of coasters and would probably break a glass table if you dropped one on it... but the coaster would survive intact.

                Each coaster is a unique thing, since it is natural stone, and the manufacturer used several different kinds of granite so they are a matched set by material and rubber edging but do not match *exactly* if that is important to your decor.

                They are also not exactly cheap, aren't something I'd want children to mess around with, or would use around glass topped ANYTHING.
