This cable tidierYes, we know cables aren't exactly clutter, and they are an essential part of a modern household, but they are far from pretty. Luckily we've found a way to keep them out of sight – just put an extension lead inside this nifty cable organiser, plug in your phone/ipad/camera chargers, then pop the lid on top to hide it all away. The lid comes in white, black, grey, dark wood and light wood shades, so you can choose a colour that will blend in with your flooring.
