@maximus321,
Thanks for the thought, but it's on a concrete slab. Anyway, I'm hoping to avoid walking on nail heads in my bare feet.

I had a new idea yesterday. What I should have done in the first place would have been to buy a chair mat. The kind with little plastic spikes molded into the bottom to keep it from moving. Maybe I did think of that and checked the prices. Them babies are expensive.

You can use a drill into the cement, and screw the rug down.

With small rugs, it's really difficult to keep them in place. I've used tape and those rug over rug sticky material, but none works very well for very long. The rug in our bedroom that I must walk over at night kept moving around, so I set my wife's nightstand leg on it. I can't nail it down, because we need to clean the bedroom rug regularly with our iRobot.

@cicerone imposter,
Yeah. There have been a number of good ideas here, and a couple that were, well. . . . As I say, I'm saving for a heavy duty chair mat designed for carpets. The old budget took a rather disturbing direction today, but that seems the way to go. That fine looking area rug of a few months ago is getting decidedly thin in a few key spots, but continues to bunch up.

@Decon123,
Well, the chair does have casters. The rug doesn't move by itself, but all I'm asking is that it simply lie there. Doesn't sound like a stiff requirement to me.

@roger,
You need to get a large dog to lie on it.
