In Praise Of: Pretty Tablet Stands

Every time it appears in a photo or video, I get compliments and questions about the brass tablet stand that holds my laptop or iPad while it charges.

I agree, it is pretty amazing.

My tablet stand is vintage from the 1970s, which means it’s not really a tablet stand. We were still typing on typewriters in the 1970s, not laptops and tablets. My oh my, how things have changed.

My stand held a memento from my parents’ wedding. I’ve used it to display various pictures over the years, but now it functions as a beautiful and practical display stand for a laptop or iPad.

I wondered if I could find this exact brass display stand somewhere online. Unfortunately, I did not on the particular day I went down the internet rabbit hole. However, I did find other pretty tablet stands to share with you today. Some of these are specifically called tablet stands. Others are cookbook stands. I think they are interchangeable now.

Check out these pretty tablet stands.

Metal Bamboo Stand | Amazon

I’m not sure about the quality of this one because it doesn’t have enough reviews but I didn’t see anything else like it in my search. It looks like it is made from bamboo, but it is metal. It’s so pretty!

I am mesmerized by acrylic and resin art. Isn’t this ocean-themed cookbook or tablet stand so pretty?
