Trivets and Burner Plates

Protect your tables and add colorful accents to your table settings at the same time. Trivets and burner plates keep heat away from table surfaces, which prevents burn marks or rings in furniture wood or its finish. They can also protect tablecloths and other textiles from dripping sauces, which prevents stains. Williams-Sonoma offers a large selection of colors and materials, letting you complement your table settings while protecting your furniture. Wood trivets espouse a rustic decor style, especially when they involve clean lines and simple styles. Wood carved into a geometric shape can lend a contemporary edge to your table setting. Cast iron trivets are incredibly sturdy and durable, and they pair well with traditional styles. Burner plates take the accessory a step further, giving off small amounts of heat to keep dishes warm when they are on the table during a meal. These are fantastic for longer gatherings, as they keep food from getting cold over the course of the evening.

Our collections include plenty of other items to help you accessorize and protect your table. Use a solid or printed tablecloth to protect finishes and add some color to your dining room decor. Accent the cloth with contrasting or matching napkins and place mats. To keep moisture rings from forming on wood, make sure you have coasters on hand to place under drinks.
