In Germany, some call these things "Hinstellchen und Verstaubchen" 
(placelets and little dust collectors), or, if of the larger kind, 
"Rumsteh-o-Maten" (standaround-o-matons)... at least they have not taken 
over Khyberspace Ground Control yet! Except for a small plastic PEZ 
sweets dispenser in the shape of Jason Momoa in "Aquaman"... sorry, but 
I simply dig long-haired and bearded men! And lynxes... but it's hard to 
find a naturalistic life-sized sitting wooden lynx for the top of my 
e-organ! Or perhaps better a Vangelis bust?

See you in Khyberspace!
