Adventures in Ugly Design: The Cable Carpet

Most of us try to hide cables under the carpet or along the walls or inside the walls, but this weird cable carpet displays them prominently. Designed by a German student, this rug has cable patterns cut out of it, designed for you to pass your cables through.

In our opinion this is pretty ugly, sort of like the living room version of varicose veins. Then again, in our homes you can barely see the cables thanks to all the electronics that are on the ground.
