Work It

These hip coasters are going to deliver style by the truckload to your home or office. They are scale miniatures of the industrial wooden pallets found in warehouses, except here their job is to lift chilled glasses and hot soup bowls off of your tables and countertops. The creation of Barcelona-based designers Carmen Dullnig and Doron Hadar, they're made from light pine, with the exposed grain giving them a natural warmth, and printed with tiny "quality assurance" stamps that might be found on the real thing. Made in the European Union.

Glass not included.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Comments about PALLET COASTERS:

Very well constructed; glue, brads (mini-nails), perfectly cut wood pieces. However, my initial close-up inspection revealed that only two coasters were useable as-is. The sharp little nail heads on the others stuck out just enough that they would have scratched the very wooden table surfaces I bought them to protect.

      Comments about PALLET COASTERS:

      I work for a major importer that has many distribution centers. We are phasing out the use of wooden pallets so we have lots of contests to come up with new and innovative ideas to repurpose pallets. This was just the perfect choice for a gift for our management team (paired with a mug and gift card for their favorite coffee)! I'm probably going to get a set for myself as well. Use 4 for my personal use and last coaster to be used as a desk accessory. Coasters were very well constructed and pristinely packed. Very impressive! I wish the price was a little cheaper (we probably would have bought a set for each manager instead of breaking it up). A very simple yet beautiful product.

      These are practicle and they look awesome. My wife loves the rustic/wooden look and these fit the bill right on the money. The only downside is while they are durable when used as coasters, the pallet appearance may lead you to believe they are stronger than the decoration that they are

          The pallet coasters were just the kind of gift I was looking for. In addition I bought a few mugs and tiny bags of coffee of different flavors and strapped them to the coasters for effect.

                  Comments about PALLET COASTERS:

                  These coasters are awesome! They are a very stylish addition to any room and are a definite conversation starter. They also provide a sturdy base for a variety of glasses/cups. I gave these as a gift to a friend in the pallet business, they were a perfect match! I am a little worried about the longevity of the coasters however, in receiving the initial set all 5 were damaged (cracked in places or completely broken). Luckily Uncommongoods being the excellent company they are replaced them with a second set which was in great shape.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  If being shipped with other heavier products (Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses, in my case) pray there is a sufficient amount of packaging materials to protect all of your products. These come in exposed packaging and don't play well with heavier objects while being shipped.

                  These clever coasters look cool while keeping moisture off your table. Would you load one with a glass of your favorite beverage?

                  Although I wish someone in America had thought of this, I love these little gems! You don't live in the North country without scrounging a few pallets for getting the wood stove going!! They represent our Yankee methods of using what you've got and never letting anything go to waste! These are a "gotta have"!!
