Seagrass Charging Station: Love It or Leave It?

I'm a big fan of charging stations, but for a long time, the only ones available were completely utilitarian — sharp lines, boxy shapes — with no heed paid to someone's interior design. What, geeks don't care about home decor?

Retailers like Pottery Barn are starting to make better-looking stations, like the Bento, but still not affordable. So I was pleased when I saw that World Market had a $25 charger, with nary a sharp line in sight! Theirs is made of seagrass, and though it's a little too shabby-chic-meets-geek for me, I like that it fills an aesthetic void. What do you think?

its not bad - not great for fitting in with much around it, but better than some i've seen out there. i still like the wood ones in white, though.

I think they should make more out of stained wood or marble. That would be cool! Have a great day... ;)

Don't know if this is true for everyone else, but my chargers get HOT when they're charging. That's why I wouldn't rest them near anything that could be tinder. Such as dry grass, loose papers, etc. And ENCLOSING them in stuff that could be used for tinder? That's just asking for trouble.

It's ok.

$25 for that? No thanks. I'd rather fashion one out of a cute shoe box than have that seagrass/wicker look. Plus, if you didn't have a case for your charge-needing friend (or needed to take it off), I'd be afraid that material could scratch its surface. Plus, it's boring. Needs some ribbons or something. :P We're not quite there on the charging stations, but I recognize the need for better looking ones!

I like it! It doesn't go with the current decor in my room, but I could see it chilling in my sunroom when I'm older, married to another geek, and we need multiple places to charge our devices...

Eh. Perhaps for a beach house.

People don't have that decor any more. How about something that looks futuristic.

I like the shape, but I'm not a fan of that material. I have a huge aversion to anything that resembles wicker.
