To say that I am obsessed with design would be an understatement. I am that person who will spend hours in a store’s stationery aisle staring at beautifully adorned wedding invitations — even though I’ve been married for nearly 7 years. It’s not that I plan on needing them anytime soon. I just have a thing for paperie, but my aversion to dead trees means that I admire much more frequently than I purchase. Buying THIS paperie, however, would be guilt free for two reasons:
- These are made of recycled cardboard
- They are likely to last a long time
These letterpress coasters by Ali Drew are my definition of fabulous. They are the kind of detail pieces that tell you that a homeowner (or renter) really cares about style. Because only a person who truly cares would take the time too buy something this pretty for the purpose of holding up wet glasses.
But I have other visions for these beauties as well. I can picture them in a simple grouping inside a picture frame as a unique piece of art, or used to line the inside of a boring drink tray, rather than sit atop a table.
Either way, I’m smitten.
Why It’s Green:
- Made of recycled cardboard
