I love tea, and if it’s possible my other half loves tea even more. As a result we are frequent coaster users. However I’ve been having quite the coaster dilemma recently. There seems to be a lack of interesting, fun and colourful coasters about. I had a brief moment of hope after discovering the Skutta Coaster at IKEA, which now live in our lounge, but after extensive Googling I couldn’t find anything else to meet my coaster needs or wants.
Last weekend when I was looking through the TENT London exhibitors I finally had a breakthrough when I found some fabulous coasters by a local North East designer, Bettina Nissen. The Shadow Coasters are available from Designed & Made.
I also came across the cute Spill Coasters from Domesticity.
Even with these discoveries I’m still disappointed by the lack of coaster inspiration, especially with some gorgeous illustrators and designer producing mugs, tea towels and everything else apart from coasters. If you have spotted any lovely coasters please leave a comment with a link, and point us in the right direction!
