Flexibility is important in a lot of cases. When it comes to furniture, you want to have the freedom to move things around, to not be restricted to a single layout. The easiest way to get this type of flexibility is with movable furniture which sits on wheels. This design strategy is popular in the case of modern and contemporary furniture pieces. These usually manage to balance looks and functionality and pay more attention to versatility, flexibility and modularity than other styles.
