For whatever reason, visible electrical cords drive me nuts. Which isn’t to say that my house isn’t full of electrical cords running to outlets – there’s even one snaking down the wall in a tube for the CO detector – but my not having lived up to my own ideals isn’t a reason to toss them out the window, right? Sometimes something needs to be plugged in and there’s just no short-term, inexpensive way to mask one’s electrical cords. Or isn’t there?
You might, for example, purchase and install one of PA-Design‘s cavaliers de printemps, which turn your electrical cords or computer cables and such into a branch upon rests a richly-colored bird. Or you could do what Maisie Maud Broadhead did (in an art installation, sadly, not in real life) and turn your long and winding cables into art using U-clips.
Unless you’re not at all bothered by snaking electrical cords… which I can only imagine some people aren’t.
