Furniture makers for years have tried to hide electronics in all forms of cabinetry, but computers are no longer willing to be stowed away like something to be ashamed of. And one of the latest techno-fashion trends is to make digital equipment blend more naturally with the decor with natural materials.

German design company Holzkontor has taken this concept to a new level with an entire line of exotic woods in a variety of finishes. Techie Diva says the monitors, keyboards and mice can be purchased separately depending on your needs (and your budget). If they ever make a laptop, there's a perfect case for it in cedar.
