I purchased this type of coaster set in another design and they are both fantastic. I purchased both sets because I am super indecisive. Who knew choosing a coaster set would be so hard? Haha. Both coaster sets are very absorbent and are very well-built. You would think all coaster sets would be as well-made and high-quality as these, but that is not the case. I have had coasters in the past that were not well-made at all, and this resulted in parts peeling and me eventually throwing the coasters away. I don't think I will have that problem with these. These coasters really give my tables that WOW factor because of the modern designs. I love both sets and have placed them on anything that needs a coaster. Hopefully, everyone will do me a favor and place their drinks on a coaster and not directly on the tables.
