Magnetic Mats

Share

Working on your guests beginning with the doormat is one of those modern decorating ideas that is not only fun but totally understated. What's great about the doormat these days is that you can express something very specific about yourself and your personality before a visitor has stepped over the threshold to your home—especially since modern doormats are bursting with sass, embossed with witty quips that seem to have come straight from the host themselves. Since this is the case, we advise you to go ahead and let your mat do the talking for you. What your visitors learn before they enter your home may be the most valuable thing of all—so here are some magnetic doormats we picked that convey all the different kinds of host you want to be. Hope you find a (mat)ch made in heaven.

the sweet one

We know your type. When guests are edging out the door, ready to leave, you're insisting they take leftovers, that they please stay for coffee, and to come back over any timeThe extravert in you is on high alert in this doormat, but that's what people love about you.

the pragmatist

Your mat shows you to be the no-nonsense type that emphasizes function over form. Why have a mat unless it's somehow beneficial to both sides? You also might be the type to go on autopilot every now and then, and need to repeat this mantra as you head out the door. No more with this doormat.

the cynical one

The funny one that insists on using their mat to display their specific brand of humor—exceedingly arch, wry comedy over obvious stuff. It is a dark humor—akin to that of black comic Louis CK, but people are drawn to you for it (there's a reason Louie has been nominated for six Emmys).

the homebody

Let's be real: we know exactly who that mat is for: yourself, coming home from a long day of work, just looking for a little encouragement from the place that you know best (and that knows you best right back). This mat is for the homebody in all of us, that just wants to add a little charm to an already charming, impossible-to-leave place.

the minimalist

You don't need your mat to "speak" for you—although it will anyway, conveying your unfettered self, stylish but never over-the-top. This is the mat for the modest, restrained sensibility that despite all remains effortlessly cool.

the open receiver...(or are you?)

For the enigmatic one. The host that makes you never sure if you're welcome, but also never sure you're not welcome, either. That, and you're clever as well, some may say ingeniously so.
