We take a look at placemats and coasters available from us, but first, let’s have a little history…
The first coasters were designed for decanters or wine bottles, so that they could be slid (or “coasted”) around the dinner table after the servants had retired. They were in common use after about 1760. Early coasters took the form of a shallow tray or dish made of wood, papier-mâché, silver or silver plate.
Here at Top Note Design, we have an ideal collection of square or round placemat and coaster sets for wine lovers on special evenings with your favourite tablecloth, and for everyday dining too, to add to your enjoyment when a servant has finished for the day! We have four unique Burgundy wine-inspired coasters, featuring our original Burgundy wine foil designs. Each design is based on the capsule of one of our favourite wines and come beautifully packaged. Match with our square Burgundy wine-inspired placements for the perfect combination. We designed this mixed set of four Rhone wine-inspired coasters in 2012.
Since then they have become a firm favourite as a colourful highlight on any table. They are perfect on their own or combine with our square Rhone wine-inspired placements as a great gift for wine lovers. Mis en Bouteille au Chateau – this set of six round wine-inspired placemats and coasters set are based on a wine capsule that we have reimagined in our distinctive style. They look just as fantastic in the kitchen or office with a cup of coffee as they do with a glass of wine. They are beautifully made in Britain and come in our signature navy blue box. Finally, inspired by our love of champagne we have created these stunning Champagne themed coasters with original designs based on champagne corks and cages. A great addition to any wine lover’s table. Cheers!
