I haven’t decided yet whether these are going to be “limited edition” or perhaps the kick-off for moving my line into home-goods territory, but at the end of October I bought up some super thick felt in Berlin, packed it up and brought it to Paris and made these new musically-themed drink coasters.
Record Player Coaster
Instead of flipping on a record, you can set your drink onto the turntable and instead of moving around and around, it’ll stay in one place on your table which is exactly the point. It comes in red and brown and also includes and arm and two faux buttons to press to your delight.
You can find it on Etsy here:
Ghetto Blaster Boombox Double Coaster
As you may have noticed, I have a bit of an obsession with ghetto blaster boom-boxes and since they incorporate a circular element (the actual speakers), they seemed perfect to go hand in hand with cups – I just had to turn them into a coaster. It supports two drinks at a time and my oh my, look at those fancy buttons under the cassette deck!
You can press play, pause, stop and record. I dare you to make your next mix tape with this baby. But I’ll tell you now, it probably won’t work. However, it will hold your drinks!

I would love to do a home-goods range of coasters, pillows and more. We’ll see! I’m back in the USA, land of the endless fabric stores and I will say the cottons are calling out to me.
