Apple’s HomePod is leaving its mark on wooden tables across the globe, but the folks at Pad & Quill have already come up with an elegant solution to save your furniture from ugly white rings.

Pad & Quill’s Leather HomePod Coaster is made American full-grain leather to provide state-of-the-art surface protection for your new HomePod. The 4-inch disc has an ultra soft leather backing with an artisan signature, giving it some classic design touches.

Perfect protection.

The coaster is designed to be a buffer between your table and the silicone vibration dampener on the bottom of the HomePod. Apple recently told customers that the HomePod will sometimes leave a white ring on tables but that it can be removed by cleaning it with the manufacturer’s oiling method.

The HomePod Coaster comes in two colors, whiskey and chestnut and boasts “marine grade stitching”. Each coaster will set you back $19, which isn’t too bad if you just spent $350 on a Siri-powered speaker.
