We all want to have the perfect little landing strip. A convenient area by the doorway we use most with plenty of surfaces and enough storage to drop all of the day's burdens—your cell phone, iPod, wallet or purse, mail and keys—and enter your serene and peaceful place (Hey, spending all night curled up at your desk clicking through Facebook can be very relaxing!). But sometimes... landing strips just happen.

We spotted this image on Flickr of a landline cordless phone doing double duty as a landing strip. In this case, being the kitchen's go-to spot for takeout menus.

Of all the reasons for keeping landlines around, like the benefits of a non-cell-phone in an emergency or just the fact that real handsets can be so damn sexy looking sometimes, we've never seen their possible double life as a storage unit as one of them.

What do you think? Does this makeshift landing strip remind you of a space in your home? Let us know in the comments.
