The Hardwood Office Chair Mat

While some are finding ways to lower the usage of wood by using bamboo and other such resources, others are finding new ways to use even more wood. This charimat doesn't just look like its made of wood, it actually is made of wood.

This hardwood mat protects both hardwood and carpet from all that wear and tear that comes with wheeling around all day in that fancy office chair. It is meant to be more durable thatn the typical plastic mats which as we all know warp after only a few years not to mention it gets scratches all over the surface.

The chairmat measures 48" x 49" and features a cherry finish. To snag one for yourself it will cost you $299.95, personally I think I'll just stick with ugly plastic at that price.
