REVIEW – I have been struggling with my computer chair on carpet for a couple years now because getting a chair mat was always on the back burner. So when Vitrazza offered their Collegiate Series Glass Chair Mat for review during March Madness I had to check it out for the sake of my carpet and basketball team. Let’s see if the Vitrazza glass chair mat can make a difference.
What is it?
Vitrazza makes glass chair mats for home and office in Golden, CO which prevents wearing out carpet or other surfaces through repetitious chair movement. Their collegiate series allows you to show your college pride by micro-sandblasting your college’s logo on the bottom of the mat.

Design and features
By selecting the Vitrazza Collegiate Series Glass Chair Mat a master glass artist will micro-sandblast the logo of your college of choice into the bottom of the mat. There are only 28 colleges to choose from at the moment and my alma mater (University of Texas at Austin) was not listed so I chose my wife’s team which is the University of Oregon.
The box was a bit heavier than I expected weighing in at 53lbs with packaging so I would recommend having another person help you move it. There are four sizes to choose from which are 36x48in, 42x48in, 48x48in, and 46x60in. You can select a landscape or portrait orientation and which corner you would like the logo placed. I selected the 42” x 48” in portrait orientation with the logo in the bottom right since my desk has a wall on the left side.
Since the logo is handmade Vitrazza does state delivery will take 3-4 weeks and mine took four weeks exactly. The packaging was very adequate and sturdy and all the stickers came off with no issue except the college authenticity sticker which left some residue which I had to use glass cleaner to remove.
Rolling my chair around now is so much easier and hardly any effort. The glass is super smooth and even comfortable with my bare feet on it. The logo covers about a 10 x 12 inch area so it’s a pretty good size. The micro sandblasting is subtle and depending on the type of carpet you have it may blend in a little as mine does but I kind of like it that way.
What I like
- High quality smooth glass
- Transferable Lifetime Warranty
- Made in the USA
What I’d change
- More colleges if possible
The Vitrazza Collegiate Glass Chair Mat is awesome on its own and sure to spruce up any office. Being able to add your college team of choice is a nice addition but adding your team logo by hand isn’t cheap with this one costing $545 but their Brava line starts at a more reasonable $195 without the logo. If you are in need of a glass chair mat for your home or office you should definitely see what they have to offer and if you are rooting for your team in the Final Four here’s another way to show off your team pride.
