I have been debating purchasing a new rug for our family room for quite some time and recently decided to try to actually commit to one. Without one it felt like the furniture was somewhat floating without an anchor.
This is what I had previously but it drove us insane because no matter what we put underneath it, it kept moving all over the place. Plus I am not in love with the color anymore. What do you think about the size? Do you like the smaller dimension?
I decided to try this IKEA rug but it is far too brown for my taste and even if I shimmy the furniture around, it still feels wrong. I keep going back and forth between going lighter or darker. What would you do?
Here are a few of the lighter options that I like: I love #1, the loop rug from Bolia. It is super cool and has a little dark thread in it to hide dirt, but I am worried that the loops will tear up easily. I would buy #2, the Souk Rug from West Elm if it were available here! (Could someone else go buy it in the US and let me live vicariously through you… please!) I love the idea of a vintage rug like #3 from Jayson Home, but I just have not found one locally that I like yet.
What would you do? Go bigger/smaller? Lighter/Darker? Go nude and live without a rug?
