It’s always a good idea to have a few trivets in the kitchen, but they are also handy throughout your home on end tables or a coffee table. Use them to protect surfaces from hot dishes and pans, whether you’re serving dinner for family or entertaining friends with a hot dip or appetizer.

The Blue Hydrangea Jute Trivet is an addition to the Blue Hydrangea Collection. Designed by artist Phyllis Stevens, this trivet brings the charm of a beautiful hydrangea blossom all year long.

A heart is formed on the Paw Prints Jute Trivet, both as a sweet image and expression of love for your family pets.
