A holiday essential: the humble trivet, for protecting table surfaces and, ideally, adding a note of style to the holiday table. Here are five we like:
Above: The Bagel Trivet is carved from Japanese maple, cherry, or walnut and comes with a leather hook for hanging purposes; $80 from Mjölk.
Above: The Teak Trivet is $29 from Canoe. The trivet is made from solid teak and stainless steel, and the wooden paddles can be turned outward to expand the diameter to accommodate different size pots and pans.
Above: The handmade straw Japanese Trivet is $16 from Schoolhouse Electric.
Above: The Trivet Stick has a magnetic joint that allows it to be used as a triangular trivet and then straightened out for easy storage; $30 from YLiving.
Above: The Concertina Wood Trivet is $55 from A+R Store. It is made from walnut and expands to fit one or several serving dishes.
