We're definitely feeling these clever multi-functional switchplates from Keep It Cartesian. By creating an extra ledge for incoming/outgoing mail, keys, and cord control, a sweet seamless mix of form and function is created, saving you both space and money. A closer look of all the available switchplate options can be found after the jump.
The cordwrap. We prefer using it to hold our cell phones, but we guess an extra-long TV cable makes sense too.
The key holder. Especially convenient since we too have a tendency to lose our keys.
And our personal favorite, the mail drop-off. We occasionally need a reminder to mail out things before we leave the house and this looks to fit the bill.
More information can be found at Keep It Cartesian. No availability as far as we can tell, but hounding the designers usually works (but do it nicely, please).
