Your end table will soon be able to juice up your phone once the IKEA wireless charging furniture collection launches. The Swedish furniture company partnered with the tech company Qi to integrate the latter's wireless chargers into a collection made up of small lamps, end tables and desks. The result is a set of minimalist furnishings that can also charge your tablet or phone.

The IKEA wireless charging furniture will be able to juice up any device that supports Qi's wireless chargers, a list that includes Nokia, Google Nexus, HTC and some Samsung products. For those devices that aren't supported, IKEA plans to release covers to solve the problem. Ikea's wireless chargers will first hit the company's UK retail and online stores but will likely see wide release soon after should everything run smoothly.
