Depending on what kind of lighting you choose for your everyday workstation, you can get different results, moods and designs. One the things that looks really good is when LED lighting is used behind and around a workstation, as ambient lighting. It sets the mood and looks awesome.

1. Dave Lei's Ingenious Floating Monitor Setup
The look and feel of Dave's workstation is really enhanced with well placed LED lighting. It adds more depth to the desk and makes it look really interesting. Dave used IKEA Dioder LED light strips to light up his desk.

2. Steve Price's 9-Monitor Workstation
This was Steve Price's setup from last year. He recently redesigned his workstation with a custom desk and is currently only using 6 monitors. However, his previous monitors were nicely lit from behind using LEDs. This setup can be overwhelming for users not used to that much screen real estate, but if you love big monitors, you'll love this workstation.

3. AcFlynn's Floating Monitor Setup
Although this was a custom-designed workstation, and countless hours went into its setup, one of the most impressive things is that there are three floating monitors in one custom-designed arm, and that they have some lighting hidden behind them. This just makes this workstation easier to use.

4. Kevin Freitas IKEA Workstation
This is another great example of what you can do with a bit of ingenuity and some basic parts. The IKEA Dioder LED lights were taped under the glass IKEA Vika Lauri desk.

5. Patrick's Blue Ecstasy Workstation
It's hard to describe Patrick's workstation. It's clearly nicely lit with a bunch of blue LEDs, it extends to neighboring shelves and desks without looking too cluttered, and a lot of thought went into it to make it an enjoyable place to be. The monitors are also spread out, so that they don't overwhelm you.
