You know the scene: You’re lounging on the couch, watching TV, and multitasking on your phone when the dreaded “10 percent of battery remaining” notification pops up on your screen. You scramble for a charger, only to find there’s no outlet within reach. What’s a citizen of the 21st century to do? Charging nightstands and desk lamps have long been popular, but don’t neglect your living room when it comes to making design-conscious tech upgrades.
