Apparently there’s a retro vogue going on in the design world when it comes to appliance, lamp, and power cords. Shown here, a selection of colorful braided fabric cable looms available from Sweden’s FRINAB Fristad Industri Aktiebolag. The cable is available in small quantities, online through their NUD Collection brand, which includes a webshop that will sell you either mix-and-match custom lamp cordsets or just the cable. They have 44 different colors and / or patterns; the 10 foot length costs $14, and the longer, 20-foot length actually costs more, on a per-foot basis, at $35.

They’ll send you free samples, too, in the colors of your choice. Shown here is a scan of the card they just sent me, with two three-inch whole cable samples on the left and two loom-only samples on the right. [via adafruit]
