Cord Cover-Up

What's wrong with this picture?


Where is the electric cord? How will they light up that lamp?

Many interior design magazines do this. They hide the cords in the meticulously styled pictures so you start imagining the table looking oh so elegant and perfect in your living room. You buy it, place your lamp and iPod dock on top and then EGAD! Unsightly cords under the table!

Here is a tip on how to hide those ugly cords.

I'm planning on having something like this made in Kamuning next week. Want to go with me?

Hi Mrs. G! I'm a lurker on your blog and I must say its been a wonderful experience picking up your fab and helpful tips!

Is the cord coverup safe? wont it be the cause of err... electrical mishaps?

@cher - Hi! I'm glad you enjoy the blog.

About the cover-up, I'm not sure if it's 100% safe. I'm now thinking of looking for a fire resistant fabric.
