Most of us love to do our work over a cup of coffee, but keeping the focus on work while attending friends or family members on a coffee gathering usually becomes difficult for us. However, new designs are appearing that use creative technology to bridge the gap between a coffee table and workstation. Now, we can sit, chat, have coffee and work altogether at the same coffee table. The new range of furniture integrates a coffee table with a flexible workstation. Check out some creative coffee tables that double as workstations to ease your work.

The convertible table is a single piece of furniture and you can pull out a workstation whenever you need it. Featuring the workstation at a comfortable height, the table lets you work nicely on top of it.
