Pad & Quill Debuts New Leather Coasters for HomePod

Following news that the HomePod leaves white rings on some wood surfaces treated with oil or wax, Pad & Quill has designed and debuted new Leather Coasters that are meant to be used with the HomePod.

Available in two colors, Whiskey and Chestnut, the 4-inch HomePod Coasters are made with full-grain leather and offer a soft leather backing.


Pad & Quill's new coasters will prevent the rings that occur on some wood furniture due to a chemical reaction between the wood and the silicone used for the vibration-dampening base of the HomePod.


The coasters will also work with other speakers that include similar silicone bases and also leave white marks on surfaces, such as the Sonos One, but the coaster's size and shape were designed with the HomePod in mind.


The new Leather HomePod Coasters can be purchased from the Pad & Quill website starting today for $19.95. Orders will begin shipping out next week.

Why do they have to be made from a piece of a dead animal?


Because the living ones won't hold still.

This is what makes it all worthwhile:
“...will also work with other speakers...”
What a time to be alive!

20 bucks. Or you could use, I don’t know, an ordinary cheap coaster you’ll never see anyway. Or maybe a disc of paper you could cut out yourself for $0.0001.

Or maybe Apple could have put a nice rubber gasket on the bottom of this speaker and nobody would have to worry about it.

That’s, um, what’s causing the ring.
