No surprise, but I'm endlessly encouraged when I encounter examples of how carpet adds a certain "je ne sais quoi" to an environment. In a camping environment, carpet adds insulation, protection from the elements, but it also considerably adds to that homey feel that lets you sleep deeply at night. I don't know about you, but I feel a bit more vulnerable when I'm out there in the elements. Sleep can be elusive. Poor sleep means crankiness the next day... Not a good scenario.
So, for the rugged camper looking for a practical solution to an otherwise miserable living/sleeping situation, I urge that you read OUTDOORSmagic Gear news. In particular, read about the Vango carpet in Carpet for your tent.
Nylon [especially Nylon 6,6] makes for the best possible carpet. Vango obviously understands carpet as they explain that "the carpets are made from sumptuous woven Nylon supplemented with a luxurious foam middle layer and a waterproof, non-slip PVC base."
Now, in the workplace, carpet adds cachet, improves productivity [see A Foot's Perspective - Episode 4 for more information about carpet and productivity], creates comfort underfoot and expresses a distinct sense of style. So, why not accentuate and take advantage of all of those benefits?

This wonderful image from Jared D. Nielsen's post titled "Extreme Cubicle Makeover: Red Mahogany Luxury Paneled Cubicle with Dark Cherry Hardwood Floors" makes my case.

Don't you agree that high design such as this in the workplace, particularly in a cubicle, can only elevate, enhance and improve?
I do have one suggestion. A larger rug. For that matter, what about wall-t0-wall carpet for this cubicle? It would add to the richness of the experience, help absorb unwanted noise from neighboring cubicle mates and generally enhance the work environment.[Hmmm. A thick plush cubicle carpet might also make for an excellent sleeping surface for 24 hour productivity... Think 'cubicle camping.']
Here's to adding that extra special touch to your every activity - from camping to working - with carpet. You won't regret it!
