Flatpack Nightstand — Urban Shelf
From the website:
Go-Anywhere Side Table
Whether you're in a dorm room, a first apartment, or a starter home, we know you've experienced life in a small space.
All we need is a tiny shelf next to our bed to hold our e-reader, phone, and glasses.
It would be awesome if this shelf also held our cords up so we could stop fishing them out from behind the bed.
Urban Shelf is a smart foldable shelf specially designed for small spaces.
No assembly is required: just unfold Urban Shelf and slide one end under your mattress or sofa cushion.
Two cord holders keep your charging cables right where you want them, while a lip on the edge keeps items from rolling off.
• 2 cord holders to wrangle your charging cables
• Usable surface dimensions: 6.5" x 9.25"
• Edge lip keeps items from rolling off
• Holds over 4x its own weight
• Durable hinges won't break
• Folds flat to 1/2" thick
• Weight: 1 lb.
$14.99 (pocket litter not included).
Note added at 4:17 p.m. today: Rereading the post just now after publication, it dawned on me that this device would be perfect for my couch, a convenient place for my remotes — I currently require the use of four (4): TV, satellite, cable, Apple TV — that won't result in their disappearance down the back-of-the-couch-cushion-where-I-balance-them black hole.
Bonus: I can also place my iPhone — invaluable during commercials MOS — there.
Done and dusted.

"It's smart... but it's ugly."
But all Urban Shelfs are invisible in the dark, which is the milieu in which I'll be using mine (TV at night).
I'll squinch my eyes up real tight while setting it up, before fading to black.

It's smart... but it's ugly. I shoot for function AND style. In this world we live in, we can surely find both.

Dept. of Diff'rent Strokes: Just ordered the white iteration from Amazon (free shipping with Prime).

Though I am not intentionally abusive to things close to my retiring area,
I would snap this item like a dried twig before the witching hour.
