Ok, so you don't want your table damaged by a mark off a cup or glass, but you don't want some crumby coasters kicking around either. The solution? Get some stylish coasters – like these Vinyl Coasters at Paul Smith.
Not coasters that look like vinyl, these used to be vinyl – made from abandoned/damaged records, then rescued and recycled into something for the home.
The downside of being so eco is that you don't know which coasters you'll get – depends what records dropped into the factory that day. But you do get six in a pack, with a price of £15.
