If you're a Vintage Geek fan chances are you're also a fan of or have seen the Scandiphone quite a bit (it was added to the New York Museum of Modern Art's Collection in 1973).
Whereas the upright (just set it down to hang up the call!) "space-age" phone was not readily available — you had to either go vintage and risk the components not working or order internationally, happily, it's just been added to Urban Outfitters' website.
The Scandiphone comes in red, black, or white for $60. Even as the world moves away from landlines, I've totally fallen for this phone and its mid-century styling. Plus, you'd own a legitimate modern work of art. Fancy.
