All over the world, people have started to take ergonomics as a very serious fashion and designers have been very active in creating and designing furniture that is apt for work from home or even work from the office.
These furniture items are needed to be flexible, functional and multi-purpose. Most people are having a difficult time in managing their work space and personal space and the same is applicable to their time too. This creates a need for multi-purpose and dynamic furniture requirements.
The dynamics of trends has changed and so has the need of comfort.
