If your iPod lays around on your desk from time to time, consider investing in the Parsons Audio End Table. This piece of furniture allows users to charge their device and play music at the same time.
The Parsons Audio End Table is a miniature counter that also doubles as a dock for the iPod/iPhone. In addition to the integrated docking station for charging, there's also built-in speakers on the front so that the user can listen to music while the device gets an energy boost. Because of its technical features, the table must be plugged in and fits most standard outlets. The counter itself has a beautiful white lacquer finish that gives it a clean, contemporary look.
