Survey: Hybrid Lounge Seating at Home?

We started seeing these hybrid work-lounge chairs become popular 2-3 years ago, popping up all over in new modern university buildings and libraries. Last week, a friend came up to us and asked if it would be a good idea to toss a few of these in his living room. We weren't sure if we could make up our minds ourselves at the time, so we thought it'd be a good idea to ask our readers for their two cents on the matter.

The pluses of having a lounge chair / laptop desk would be the added convenience, value, and space consolidated - since you could remove the need for a dedicated computer desk if you had a comfortable place to do work. And heck, if you could do it while watching TV, who can complain?

On the other hand, that's just the thing. The negatives of having one of these babies in your home would be the added confusion of creating a working environment within a place intended for solitude and rest. Though many of us have adapted to the work-at-home routine, there are others out there who will agree that combining the two psychological mentalities into a single space just isn't worth it. However, if used solely for an office environment, it's nothing short of a spectacular place to do your thang.

If you'd like to purchase the chair featured above, it's made by Gunlocke and is called Meet & Greet chair.
