SCRABBLE Coasters

SCRABBLE Coasters

"Qi," "zi" and "zoa" are words you probably had no familiarity with two years ago. After Words with Friends, however, they probably end up getting entered in your phone or Facebook more frequently than some of the more commonly used words to describe dudes with popped collars. I...

Introducing: MVMT Sunglasses

Introducing: MVMT Sunglasses

For too long, sunglasses have either been affordable but poorly made, or solid but so pricey you’d consider taking out a loan to buy them. It’s time for a better option. MVMT is proud to introduce their line of sunglasses that aren’t plagued by retail mark-ups and cheap manufacturing. We’re talking high quality, stylish sunglasses for far less than you’d imagine. By utilizing the same direct to consumer model as their highly successful watch line, MVMT is able to make their own sunglasses and offer them to you for as little as $70. Even better, as a Cool Material reader, you’ll save 15% on your first pair. The MVMT continues.

Floppy Disk Coasters

Floppy Disk Coasters

We cannot, for the life of us, remember the last time we held a floppy disk in our hands. The little black plastic disks were fun to take apart and hang from the rear view in the car, but they haven't been much use since CDs and the Internet. What they are good at though is looki...

Concrete Coaster

Concrete Coaster

Concrete is cool. Coasters are just good manners. Combining the two is obvious, but this particular coaster goes one step further because the cement has enough non-toxic recycled ash in it to make the coaster water absorbent. Most coasters prevent your cold one from leaving a rin...

Bar Games Coasters

Bar Games Coasters

If you didn’t want social interaction when you were out at the bar, you’d drink alone at home. Talking about sports, or the weather or traffic over a cold one is just as much of an American pastime as baseball itself. Eventually you’re going to run out of things to talk abo...

Dexter Blood Splattered Coasters

Dexter Blood Splattered Coasters

Nobody casually watches Dexter. If you watch Dexter, you love Dexter. Most fans of the show are the adult male equivalents of pimply-faced teenyboppers slapping pictures of Taylor Lautner's abs up on their wall. Even if you aren't a Dexter memorabilia collecting freak, you m...

Reusable Paper Coasters

Reusable Paper Coasters

Coffee mug and beer bottle stains are for immature slobs. We want our pad to look presentable and that includes keeping the coffee table in front of our TV in good shape. This doesn’t mean you have to use boring coasters from Bed, Bath and Beyond, however. These Reusable Paper ...

Record Label Coasters

Record Label Coasters

Buying new furniture is expensive (even IKEA adds up), so protect the stuff you already have by listening to what your mom told you all those years ago and using a coaster. The protective barrier between your beer and your table doesn't have to be a piece of flimsy cardboard or g...

The Big Lebowski Coasters

The Big Lebowski Coasters

Here's a common problem:  You're throwing a party and wearing your favorite oversized sweater when you go to carefully rest your White Russian on the coffee table and realize you don't have any coasters!  Major bummer.  Don't let this mistake happen to you at your next soiree ...

Palette Coasters

Palette Coasters

Currently our coaster collection consists of some cheap beer logo cardboard discs that, to be honest, we’re not completely sure how we acquired.  Needless to say we’re ready for an upgrade and, maybe in the spirit of our first job hauling stuff off stackable palettes in the...

Girls Can Tell Coasters

Girls Can Tell Coasters

To be honest, the last time we paid any attention to a diagram was in health class... you know the one. Sure, diagrams can generally be pretty boring, but it really depends on the context. Philadelphian artist Sara Selepouchin creates coasters featuring complex diagrams of everyt...

Bicycle Wheel Coasters

Bicycle Wheel Coasters

If your love of bicycles goes beyond the occasional ride through town to the point where it's really the wheels, spokes and gears themselves that get your motor running (or your pedals turning we suppose) then we've got a decorating tip: replace anything round in your pad with bi...

Psycho Diagnostik Coasters

Psycho Diagnostik Coasters

The next time you bring home a date and want to find out if she's already planning your future, then you're going to have to analyze her. Of course you don't want to pull out a pad of paper and start jotting down notes on her behaviour—that would be too obvious. Just have a dri...
