Being able to work outside the traditional office is really a marker of how our lives have evolved. No longer are we only sitting at our desks in offices, this new freedom comes with many advantages – like, say, the ability to work full time from your couch. Small, lightweight tech like laptops, tablets, and smartphones allow us the flexibility to move from location to location without a drop in productivity or performance – but you may still need a workplace designed less for lounging and more for getting things done.
