Bocci’s 22 Makes The Outlet Cover Plate Obsolete




    Have you ever wished that your outlet cover could magically disappear? We have, especially when the covers prevent us from positioning a couch, table or chair in the right spot. Fortunately, the 22 suite of electrical accessories by Vancouver-based design house Bocci provides a sleek alternative. The outlets are brilliantly created, so they’re flush to your wall. What’s more, you can apply drywall over them for a virtually seamless look. Bocci offers matching light switches, cable or speaker outlets and telephone connections as well. With an outlet, remove tool, double gang mounting plate, informational booklet and DVD, the starter kit costs around $250. It’s a major investment, but might prove worthwhile for minimalists and design purists. Read more about it on Apartment Therapy.
