Pad and Quill unveils leather HomePod coaster to protect wooden surfaces

Leather HomePod Coaster

That was quick. The same day Apple acknowledged that the HomePod might leave rings on some surfaces, accessory maker Pad & Quill launched its Leather HomePod Coaster.

Apple released a support document stating that it's not unusual for the HomePod to leave mild marks when placed on some wooden surfaces. While these marks should be easily removed by a damp cloth, some HomePod owners may want to invest in a surface protector like the one now being offered by Pad & Quill.

The Pad & Quill surface protector is now available for pre-order for $19.95 through It is available in Whisky or Chestnut. The 4-inch disc is handmade from American full-grain leather with marine grade stitching and an ultra-soft leather backing.

It was also revealed this week that Sonos speakers were also leaving marks on some wooden surfaces. So you might want to invest in a speaker coaster for whatever model you use if you're worried about your furniture or countertops.
