Map Quest

We tend to think coasters are the socks of the tabletop universeóan afterthought and used only when needed. When you're sipping a crisp iced tea (spiked or otherwise), are you really thinking where you should set that tumbler down? We surely aren't. And we've ruined many wooden surfaces that way. Which is precisely why we're calling on this four-piece Brooklyn coaster set to come to our furniture's rescue. These cork-backed marble tiles split our beloved Brooklyn borough into four parts, so your drink can chill in Williamsburg while your guest's beverages hang out in Park Slope. Plus, at $42, this set is a great housewarming gift for any New York apartmentóbe it in Brooklyn or beyond.
