This week Latest Sale discusses best ways to choose the right living room rug style for the Interior Design Business Directory.
When shopping for living room rugs keep in mind variables such as size, texture, colour, pattern, shape, and how well the rug is likely to complement existing furniture. Finding a rug that accommodates the desired seating area, rather than the whole room is crucial. An oddly shaped rug or a round rug allows you to cheat scale. If the living room space is heavily used or pets are involved, consider an all-wool rug, sisal, or a cotton flatweave which can also add texture to your space. Some affordable options include an all-wool, hand-knotted rug or a combination of wool and artificial silk. Choose a solid ground colour or rich jewel tone when layering and top with a smaller patterned rug that highlights some of the bold colours and it will be a great conversation-starter.
