The owners of this Atlanta townhome both work from home from time to time and love entertaining. A power station with USB outlets is discreetly hidden in the top of the kitchen island and revealed by pressing on the top of it. With the power station accessible, the island becomes a comfortable spot to work or charge cell phones.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could whack your iPhone to turn off its alarm in the morning, the way you can with an old-school clock? This clever holder turns your phone into a freestanding alarm clock with a slappable snooze button … plus it’s a charging station.
Take a closer look at the islands, and you might notice that each comes with a couple of outlets. Not only do these allow the owners to plug in blenders or other kitchen essentials, but they can also be used as convenient charging stations for the kids' phones or computers after dinner.
