Co-working. It's super trendy, but can make some people want to put on their headphones and hide under their big, collaborative shared desks.

Susan Cain, author of Quiet and presenter of the famed TED talk "The Power of Introverts," has partnered with Steelcase to create Quiet Spaces, a new line of co-working office spaces expressly designed to empower introverts to do their best work. 

As an introvert who works 9-5 in a shared, collaborative office space, I can't help but love this idea. The small, private spaces allow for a brief escape from the sometimes overwhelming environment of co-working, but the design still leaves the space feeling open.
