Despite my current online business, I have never really embraced technology as being personal to me. In fact I didn't own a phone, TV or a computer until I was in my 30s. I didn't even have a car or drive until then either. I knew how to work a Mac for design and passed all the necessary computer modules in schools and various courses. I could even code a basic quiz but I just wasn't interested in having tech 'stuff' in my house...
I am not attracted to the aesthetic of tech. The black stuff. Metal and plastic attachments, wires, screens and plugs.. Eughh!
On Mobile Stands and Other Relevant Research
Through researching relevant gift items to offer my customers in my online business I have discovered that there are things that make the tech world 'nicer' or more aesthetically pleasing so to speak and I am not talking about content. I am talking about paraphernalia. Phone holders, mobile stands and more specifically, phone stands for desks.
I love my new makes I have to say. They are both handy and luxurious. Quirky enough to be interesting and practical enough to be useful in today's world.
These little phone stands are light weight and lend themselves design wise to a living environment. They will add something to the decor and not cause your living space to look like an office or a space station. (My phone holders are not recommended to those who like that aesthetic).. I realise that the basic idea is not unique but I have made a few to make mine better I believe or at least to appeal to my sense of style.

What are the Outstanding Design Features of My Mobile Stands?
They are basically a pyramid shaped cushion with a little step added on the front on which to lean your phone securely while you enjoy having your hands free.
What are the unique design features of my phone holders?
1) I use interesting upholstery materials which are often recycled and arty looking. This way they can contribute to your living style to make a design statement along with being a practical and necessary item.
2) I have added the tassels to give a little distinction of luxurious decadence to the mobile phone holder. I make the generous tassels from scratch from matching coloured threads and yarns. I can also from time to time, save tassels from products I buy, like saving buttons from old worn out garments, just in case I can then use them in a design some time.
3) Another design feature I often include in a phone stand for desks is a little hanger incorporated into the tassel chord so you can put it out of reach on a little hook if you want to clear a space for any reason. This way you don't have to put it on the floor and the visual contribution of the pattern and colour is still apparent when you are not even using it. Much like a cushion adds to the style of a room by highlighting and complimenting the colour scheme and theme of a room.

Is a Phone Stand Part of Your Everyday Too?
I notice the fact that these little phone holders are part of our everyday and baring this in mind they will have an effect on us. Perhaps the effect is unnoticeable for the most part with regular holders except for the handy hands free attribute but it could be different, better. Hopefully the effect is obvious when you have one of my phone holder designs. I want them to be practical of course but uplifting and fun too.
