Apple’s iPhone 4s will fall into the hands of thousand upon thousands of people tomorrow.  And while the handset surely is great value for money, we can’t help but get that the feeling that West Elm’s Parson Audio End table from West Elm is anything but.  However, it’s not your average table and why the hell would we mention the iPhone if it were.

Integrated into its lacquered surface is an 30-pin dock allowing you to charge your handset and playback music through a built-in front speaker system covered by fabric.  Unfortunately, the cord doesn’t snake through the leg of the table and instead destroys the table’s clean lines.  It measures 20″ square and 22″ high, so might suffice as a bedside table.

The Parsons Audio End table from West Elm is available now.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
