I really hate it when cords get tangled and mangled. This is a good way of hiding electrical cords and gives a much neater appearance.
I realize in the big scheme of things, the "problem" of my electrical cords showing is like 0.05 out of 100 on the importance scale, however I do have one lamp that's really bugging me!! (but is this a fire hazard? Hmm...)
