Work From Home Furniture for a Remote Workforce

The number of remote employees has exploded in the U.S. over the past several years, leaving companies struggling to create at-home setups with adequate support for a workforce in flux. In the span of one year, from 2016 to 2017, remote work grew 7.9 percent. Over the last five years, it grew 44 percent and over the previous 10 years, it grew 91 percent. An estimated 3 percent of the U.S. population now works from home.

A folding chair shoved into a closet is not a reasonable solution for any telecommuting employee. Small home office furniture is designed to be multi-purpose and adjustable. This is furniture designed to support a growing lifestyle since Amerisleep reports 75 percent of remote workers are planning to do their jobs from home for the remainder of their careers.
