Workstations are not a new thing to us, but in the recent times, they have succeeded in turning more than a few heads and the demand for comfy, luxurious workstations has increased by leaps and bounds.
Have a look at these 14 stylish and Luxurious workstations.
1. Corner V1 Computer Desk
Dynamically designed to offer ergonomic comfort at an affordable price, the New Corner V1 Desk takes entertainment and work to new heights while saving space.
With the exception of the reclining chair, every part of the desk is hand-machined and welded for maximum sophistication.

2. Cruise & Atlas Workstation

Made with a flexible mesh fabric, a wide headrest and a broad variety of adjustment options, the Atlas chair provides numerous options for support. Equipped with a special reclining function, the unusually low sitting position shifts body weight to the large-surface backrest to reduce strain on neck, shoulders and arms.
The reclining position also promotes blood circulation and prevents swelling of the legs, allowing for more relaxed working and improved focusi on computer work.
The height of the two-part cruise table can be adjusted easily and tilted to align with the reclining position of the chair. All control levers are easily accessed from underneath the table to make the functions niftier to operate.
3. Daybed Ergonomic Workstation
A modern lounge chair and ottoman teamed with an ergonomically designed laptop computer support double the benefits of the Daybed ergonomic workstation, which can be simultaneously used as a home office workstation and piece of contemporary home furniture.
Not only is the Daybed a treat for the eye, but it also reduces stress and injuries associated with the use of laptops in unhealthy postures. The laptop tray can be slid into position easily and pushed away when not required with the help of a swing arm, while a conventional ball joint enables the tray to be rotated 180 degrees for both left- and right-handed users.
The reclining backrest provides adequate back support and the ottoman below can be adjusted to your height.
4. PCE Workstation
Another dental chair lookalike, the PCE workstation has room to support up to three LCD monitors, and can be adjusted from every angle.
Fully adjustable from footrest to monitors and ultra comfortable for extended playing, PCEs are not limited to gaming: one person’s ultimate gaming environment is another’s ergonomic workstation or personal home theatre.

*BINGO UPDATE* The Battle-Rig Pro Gaming Workstation was voted number 1 best chair for playing online bingo. There were numerous chairs up for nomination at the bingo awards ceremony last night but this one topped the lot. Over 2000 bingo players were surveyed and some claimed it provided them with a ‘bingo-hall-like’ experience, the enclosed space allows the players to immerse themselves in the bingo experience.
