Stop! Don't you dare set down that drink without this
Remember the story line in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" in which Larry David is accused of setting a glass on a wooden table sans coaster and leaving a ring? (Spoiler: He didn’t do it.)
People get to talking, drinking, and they get careless. But if you leave enough coasters around — and eye-catching ones — maybe, just maybe, they’ll get used.
Mine, I realize too late, blend in too much with the furniture. That’s why these citrus-patterned leather coasters from the gift shop at Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs appeal. Twenty dollars buys a five-pack of hand-tooled, burnished and waxed leather coasters made by Commune Design.
The design collective also has its own line of handsome tooled-leather coasters for sale for $25.
Leather coasters, five-pack, $20 at Ace Hotel, shop.acehotel.com.
