Do you place heavy furniture on carpets/rugs?

No replies yet, so let's make it clear that carpet=rug for the purpose of this thread.

When I say heavy furniture I mean things like a 3-seat sofa or a dining table with 6 chairs. When I google furniture on carpet or heavy furniture on carpet, most links talk about moving heavy furniture. I am thinking of placing one carpet under the dining table with the 6 chairs and another one under a 2-seat sofa and a coffee table. If a sofa and a coffee table sit on a carpet without being moved can they cause irreparable damage to the carpet? Would you put the carpet just under the coffee table for aesthetic reasons? The carpets I placed in the corridor and the bedrooms were an easier job because they don't have any furniture on them but I would like some opinions before I start experimenting in the living room. I should also mention that I already have carpets so I am not going to buy new ones, just trying to find ways to fit them in the house.
