I've always taken photos of my current work setup. Below are my workspaces from over the years. I'll continue to add photos as my spaces changes and as I find more photos.
I won't pretend that I don't love my workspace at SimpleGeo. I'm capable of working out in the open, but I can get more done with less distraction. Plus, the blackout curtains kick so much ass.
Somehow, I never got around to taking a full-on picture of my desk at Digg. This is the best that I have, so imagine the rest of the desk surrounded by dozens of others in a giant, windowless cinder-block room painted entirely silver. Seriously.

This is a horrible picture, but it's the only one I have. We got these metal desks from DWR which look really good so long as you never, ever use them or have someone to polish them on a daily basis.
Because we were running out of space, Jake Nickell and I decided to share an office. We shared a single 12' desk. My spot was on the left side, closer to the wall by the bookshelf.
In Threadless’ 4th office, we got ridiculous and took a 20’ x 60’ piece of the building and broke it into three enormous offices. Also, choosing an Eames Executive Chair is choosing to ignore 50+ years of ergonomic research. Ouch.
These offices were smaller than a jail cell, but it was my first actual office, so it was still pretty cool.
I had surgery in 2005 which kept me working from home for a couple months. Yes, that's a PC. Despite popular belief, you're not required to design on a Mac.
We decided to build these huge desks out of solid wooden doors and deck posts. Each person was responsible for sanding their own desk. I believe these all got painted by Joe Suta and are now lunch tables at the office.

This is in the office that I shared with skinnyCorp back when I ran my own design company, inFORMATION Design Lab.
