I don’t think I’m going out and a limb and making a radical statement here: Like many of my fellow freelance writers and bloggers, when I’m not working from my local coffee shop I spend ample time on my couch. And in my bed. And then back to my couch. It’s a vicious cycle, especially since I do have a desk. Sometimes I wonder if there’s such a thing as “sofa sores.”

This whole time, mind you, I have my fingers placed on a keyboard, my eyes focused on a computer screen. I wouldn’t consider myself a geek, thank you very much, but I do spend an awful lot of time with my MacBook.  If you’re like me and have an intimate relationship with your ‘puter (and your couch), you may want to invest in a set of Ctrl-Alt-Del pillows available at DiffractionFiber’s Etsy shop.

These light gray, 12 inch, couch-ready cushions ($58 for the set of three) are handmade from Eco-Felt (or Eco-fi), a fiber that’s made entirely out of post-consumer recycled plastic bottles. The letters are cut by hand and appliquéd to the pillow cover.

The cheeky Ctrl-Alt-Del pillows make for great interior décor items for both geeks and green design enthusiasts. Now, excuse me while I relocate to the couch…
