Placemats can instantly pretty up a table setting. But the post-meal crusty niblets, washing and folding usually relegate them to special-occasion status. Modern-twist has come up with an elegant solution in their quick-cleaning, non-porous silicone products. Coming in chic prints ranging from floral, to polka dots, to abstract art, the hand-silkscreened placemats and coasters are free of BPA, latex and chemicals. Perfect for stylish entertainers who like to save the world in their spare time.

Parents: There's a kid's line, too. Doodle-friendly mats safe for washable and dry-erase markers are perfect distractions for travel and restaurants. Just wipe clean with a damp cloth and start coloring all over again.

Price: $18
