BETHEL, Conn. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- So you finally bought that flat screen 3D TV you’ve been dreaming of, but as soon as you open it, you realize that it has to be connected to your cable box. What a hassle! Plus, the speakers you splurged on seem out of place on your polished parquet floors. Is it even possible to have sleek, new technology and a space to match?

Duracell and Apartment Therapy’s founder, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan have teamed up to offer the following tips for seamlessly and even wirelessly incorporating technology into your home décor (and maybe providing great last minute gift ideas).

Create a charging station:

Instead of separate charger cords for each of your mobile devices, making a tangled mess around your home or office, eliminate the clutter by using the Duracell myGrid. With it you can wirelessly charge up to four devices at the same time. Just attach a Power Sleeve or Power Clip+ Tip to each device and drop it on the pad to charge – it’s that easy – and mobile devices are organized in one place.

Cleaning up around the desk:

A terrific stocking stuffer for someone who spends a lot of time at their desk and hates cable clutter is Bluelounge's newest item, CableDrops. CableDrops are affordable and effective solutions to keep your wiring organized and neat. They also come in a variety of colors to help match your décor.

Update your computer speakers:

If your computer speakers date back to your first computer, or if you’re looking for a portable solution, think about upgrading. The Jawbone Jambox designed by Yves Béhar operates as a Bluetooth wireless speaker. It can connect to your music via your phone, computer or tablet from anywhere around the house. Not only does it look sharp but it also sounds great.

Make your flat panel wireless:

An easy way to set up your flat panel TV is to unplug and go wireless. The Phillips Wireless HDMI connections allow you to connect your TV to HD devices (e.g. DVD Players, cable, satellite boxes) wirelessly. So you can place your TV even in challenging areas such as above fire places or passageways.
