I wasn't gonna leave it like it is! I was gonna either get it and drill a couple holes in the dock and then the phone would lean back on the pieces of bamboo I would stick in the holes! Modify it another words! I may ask the artist that do these if he/she would possibly alter it a bit and I would pay a little extra!
The encasing for the lightning connector holds it in place because it doesn't have any room to move at all. Yes, the phone will be supported, but not be the cable. It'll be supported by the wood that's supporting the cable.
Anyway, I would totally buy this if I had a white iPhone. I have a black desk, aluminum iMac, black iPhone it wouldn't look like it fits in. However, this is very, very pretty.
