Every time we entertain we're reminded how much we love a good trivet. Whether a simple felt circle or something fancier, trivets can often be the perfect blend of form and function - because who says a trivet can't be pretty while protecting your table from a hot dish?
From the ultra modern to classic cast iron, we think all of these have a place on the table. Feel free to add your favorites to the list in the comments section . . .
