Jonathan Adler goes wired. Or really, unwired.

We’ve long since ditched the land line and become a mobile-only household. Overall, I love the savings and consolidation; if not the fact that the stupid 3G network doesn’t reach my kitchen for some reasons. The main challenge for me, as with most busy moms, is remembering to plug everything in at night. Jonathan Adler, of all people, is making it easier with a fabulous cell phone charging station that looks more Barney’s than Best Buy.  I’m so glad the designer of all things beautiful and covetable has taken his plot for world design domination and moved it to...

Previously seen on Cool Mom Picks I could count the many ways in which I am completely obsessed with  Threadless, the original crowdsourcing art-to-product site, but who has that kind of time? But with this, their latest, my life may just be complete–Threadless has teamed up with Griffin to make cool iPhone cases. Catch me; I’m swooning.  Now sadly, the iPhone cases won’t fit a geriatric first-generation iPhone, but for you 3G and 4G folks, have at it.
