So Long, Pesky Cords – Thanks to the Multi-Purpose Ledge


What’s your secret for making electrical cords sexy? Let’s face it, they just aren’t. And with so many gadgets on the market these days, an ugly tangle of chargers and power strips don’t add to the sexy factor.

The latest solution to this problem? The Ledge from Urbancase. This sleek console hangs on the wall, conceals unsightly cords and features a drop-down, pull-out shelf on the right side.

As Design Milk points out, the Ledge could serve many different functions in the home, including a desk, a hall table, or stereo/media cabinet. The designers built the Ledge around the notion of cord management.

Admittedly, the stylish little number doesn’t come cheap (it’s listed at $1,500 including shipping), but it’s available in walnut or red, comes formaldehyde-free, and we love that it’s designed by an indie furniture company in Seattle.

According to their website, Urbancase is committed to minimizing their negative impact on the environment, so they use Forest Stewardship Counsel-certified lumber and low VOC finishes whenever possible. Each piece is hand built in their Seattle workshop.

How would you use the Ledge? Can you picture it in your space?
