Clever Coasters: Upgrade Your Cocktail Hour

Quick question, when was the last time you used a coaster? Or when was the last time you were over at a friends for a cocktail and they had coasters? And paper/cardboard ones don’t count. I can still remember my mother and grandmother having beautiful crystal/silver coasters. These beautifully crafted little disks may seem obsolete these days but back in the day they were standard in almost every household. Sure they had utility –  they protected their antiques from the dreaded rings but I also loved the whole ceremony of using one. As such, I have been on the hunt for great coasters for our second home in New Orleans – where cocktail-ing is an art. Thankfully, I managed to find many great examples of beautiful yet cheeky coasters from Jonathan Adler. Perfect for Nola.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
