Ikea have unveiled a special new range of furniture, yes it is cost-effective, yes it is flat packed – but the twist is, it can also charge your smartphone, wirelessly. The new high tech collection features lamps, bedside tables, and desks, which all contain a charging pad developed in collaboration with specialist technology company Qi.

Google Nexus, HTC, Samsung and Nokia and other devices already embedded with Qi technology will be compatible with Ikea's new pioneering range. The Swedish retailer will follow the furniture launch with a range of cases, which will enable other device holders, such as iPhone users, to benefit from the wireless charging items.

"Through research and home visits, we know that people hate cable mess," Jeanette Skjelmose, IKEA business area manager for lighting and wireless charging said. "They worry about not finding the charger and running out of power. Our new innovative solutions, which integrate wireless charging into home furnishings, will make life at home simpler."

The range will go on sale at Ikea stores and online from April 2015.
