Laser cut from 3mm birch plywood, these drink coasters from National Design Collective celebrate Canadian cities. The decor accessories are a staple of national pride and feature topography-inspired designs of Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa.

Entitled "I Kinda Like it Here", this coaster set from National Design Collective makes a great housewarming gift for proud Canucks, urban planners and design enthusiasts with an appreciation for clever home goods. The pieces are decorative, practical and are guaranteed to spark up conversations among guests.

Inspired by our nation’s geographic identity, this set of four coasters comes complete with a handmade screen print that matches each city’s outline. Each of the pieces measures 80mm across and is durable thanks to its sturdy wood materiality.
