It’s not often that we absolutely fall in love with iPhone/iPad stands. Frankly, they’re so utilitarian that there’s not much to set one apart from another.

Last week we brought you a gallery of 20 beautiful Mac OS desktops, but the customization doesn't stop there. This week we bring you 20 beautifully customized iPad homescreens. iOS customization is a little more challenging than OS X customization, particularly on the iPad, but with a little time and perseverence, these themers achieve beautiful results.
