A coaster is a small mat on which a bottle or glass can be placed so that it does not stain or damage the surface of the table. Coasters are in wide use and can be made from many different materials like lace, cloth, jute, wood or stone.
Drink coasters are often symbols of elegance and sophistication and the display of a set of coasters is often an indication of the care and attention paid to the beauty of a home. Marble coasters have a level of contrast that comes from the design of the coasters. Marble is natural stone and has a permanence and power that comes from the earth itself. They are available in a wide variety of colors and can even be multi-colored. Classic coasters made of marble will be white in color and are very easy to maintain and clean. They, however, require careful handling.
