Growing up, I remember every carpeted home or office had a rolling computer chair and one of those hideous plastic gripping mats. The idea was to make the wheels able to slide over an otherwise carpeted area...

But now that computers are everywhere—and we mean everywhere: the living room, bedroom and the kitchen—we're inclined to make sure our workspaces are better looking.

Real chairs without wheels are taking over, and, in this case, some people actually putting the carpets back down.

We spotted this Mother-and-Son workspace image on Lifehacker and were immediately drawn to the way that the pair had accented their workspaces with desk-area rugs.

What do you think, Unplggd? Do you like the definition of space you get from a look like this? Or do you think putting a rug under your desk chair is silly and cumbersome? Tell us in the comments!
