I can't tell if the sandstone is sanded (i.e. a smooth top) or is left natural and a little rough. Which is it? Thanks.

Works great any drips are soaked up.Read More
The coasters are just want I wanted--simple and natural. I do not care for the sandstone coasters that have prints on them. These just look like natural sandstone which suits our decor well. I ordered 2 sets and for one of the sets, the bamboo coaster holder arrived broken but Overstock quickly resolved that situation by sending a replacement holder within days.Read More
This was a gift for my sister who wanted really good coasters in a simple neutral design/color. I have many Thirstystone coaster sets and have never been disappointed. They are very substantial and are great at absorbing liquids. I don't use any other kinds in my house and I am obsessed with having coasters on every table that might have a glass put on it. The price was good too. You will not be disappointed if you purchase these!Read More
Added a touch of natural elements to my modern decorated apartment. The lines and the ability to neatly stack them in the holder did not take away from my modern decor. I love the natural stone and how it absorbs the condensation from sweating glasses. Perfect look for the price and very functional.Read More
I ordered two sets of these. I thought I needed more than four coasters. I just moved into a Senior Villa and I don't think my shabby coasters moved with me (I'm still unpacking). The sandstone patterns are very attractive and varied They hold a surprising amount of fluid and sparkle until the fluid evaporates. The fluid evaporates rather quickly. I am less impressed with the coaster holders. They are not particularly attractive but they do the job for which they are designed and are relatively unobtrusive. I think these would make a nice gift for a man. They are not especially feminine...but would be appropriate for someone who likes rocks and stones...which I do.Read More
Looks great on my table and very functional . I like the light color against my dark table and the cork bottom is nice as well.Read More
I am very happy with my purchase as it compliments the space it is in very well. The coasters are squares of stone that have an absorbent cork square on the underside to control moisture. VERY ELEGANT!Read More
Unfortunately the first set arrived with a broken bamboo container, but customer service quickly set it right. The. second set is as pictured and lovely!Read More
Coasters are everything that they are advertised to be. they work very well for wicking fluids from glasses and look very nice. The holder pictured is not what was sent though. The picture shows a holder that holds all four coasters in a horizontal position. The holder that was shipped to me holds them in a verticle position. This would not be that big of a deal, but the holder is actually wider than the coasters so unless you have them to the outside of the holder, they will fall through the front or back. It has been a couple of years since I bought from overstock.com since my last order had to be returned and reordered due to poor packaging and quality control. Looks like they still have issues with quality control and making sure they pull the right items that match to fill your order.Read More

Best Sunroom Furnishing Ideas
Sunrooms are often some of the most popular areas of any home. Large windows and garden views make sunrooms feel like outdoor retreats while still providing the cover and warmth of indoor rooms. Because sunrooms are connected more to the outdoors than any other room in your home, pick design elements and furniture that work with that theme. Below, you'll find some of the best sunroom furnishing ideas. Seating: One of the most important parts of a sunroom is the seating arrangement. Since you'll likely want to spend many warm nights and bright days in your sunroom, you'll need adequate seating. Sunrooms typically feature either wood furniture or wrought iron seating. When deciding what's right for you, consider the overall look of the room as well as the intended comfort level. Wooden furniture with thick cushions is warmer and more comfortable than metal. A wicker sectional sofa with comfortable cushions will work well with the design of a sunroom. Alternatively, wrought iron benches and chairs give a modern look and feel to a room. Mismatched plush armchairs are a great way to bring both comfort and casual elegance to a sunroom. Tables: When picking out tables for your sunroom, consider how you're going to use the area. Choose a low table that can act as a coffee table for guests to set down their drinks. Tables with glass inserts match sunrooms well because of surrounding glass windows. Sunrooms are a popular place to go during parties and family get-togethers, so consider adding a small dining table and chairs to the room for meals. Design elements: Although sunrooms are indoors, they tie in the nature and wonder of the outdoors. Choose design elements that bring both sun and nature into the room. Wicker planters can hold plants of your choice. Place planters on side tables and on the floor next to entrances to give an inviting impression as guests enter the room. Artwork can change a bland sunroom into something charming and interesting. Look for paintings and sculptures that incorporate colors and themes from the surrounding decor.
