Talk of the Town
This sleek coaster set does more than save your wooden surfaces—it opens a window into history. Each set highlights one of America's major cities (Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, or Los Angeles), and each individual, acrylic coaster is etched with a map of that city during a key year in its growth. Together they form a visual timeline that hints at stories of annexed towns, changing coastlines, even sprawl. Stack them on top of each other, and it's like looking through time.
This cartographic history is compiled by designers Brian Barr and Dr. Matthew Wettergreen, gathered from online databases and historical maps. The set serves as both a stylish home accent and an intelligent conversation starter. Handmade in Houston, Texas.
Each coaster has rubber feet to prevent scratches.
Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
