Chances are you are already using your smartphone or tablet in the kitchen, so why not just integrate everything directly into the kitchen counter?

Sometimes you just don’t have space for stools in your kitchen, or perhaps they don’t really go with the design you had in mind. This is where Upland Developments from Utah, enter the picture.
