Ever worry about spilling a drink on your smartphone at the dinner table? Well if you have, IKEA has just come up with a practical solution: a placemat complete with a smartphone pouch. As part of the Swedish retailer’s upcoming “SITTNING” collection that aims “to celebrate the joys of sharing a meal with those you love,” a new placemat that has a pouch sewn onto it, will be available for a bargain of $2 USD. However, the loose weave in the mat ensures that you’ll notice if your phone lights up, making it all the more distracting. Isn’t that the opposite of what this “SITTNING” collection is all about?
