There is something beautifully sculptural about an everyday trivet made of natural materials - marble, cork, jute, leather. This jute woven trivet picked up in old Tokyo beautifully displays a steamer full of dumplings. Our simple Muji cork trivet doubles as a tray to serve a pot of tea midday. CB2's concentric marble circles host a jade plant by day then break out and dance all over our marble table to keep a hot tagine, bowl of couscous and salad a loft. And the corkscrew trivet gifted by whimsical friends balances on eight wine corks we foraged ourselves. This week we crafted our own out of round wooden beads by stringing them together with a leather chord knotted between each bead.
