Some people are really obsessed with their iPhones. Tuan Nguyen, Ken Thomas and a few buds got together to create this unique coffee table in the shape of the Apple phone. The iLounge members made the furniture out of corrugated wood and glue. They also made built-in coasters out of the icons. We like the design and figure we can put it alongside our Pacman Living Room Set in the room with the Super Mario Wall Decals.

There are wooden speakers and environmentally correct ones, but what if you could combine the two? That’s exactly what Woodchuck’s Woodgrain iPod/Laptop Speakers do. Available in both light and dark models, the speakers are surrounded in heavy duty cardboard and arrive flat. DIY and can they make you look hot without damaging your budget. We found the semi-recyclable devices available for only $13.50 a pair.
