A QUESTION OF GEOMETRY! TO USE A CIRCULAR RUG OR RECTANGLE

Filed under: round area rugs — Tags: — jherzlinger @ 4:31 pm

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

After running around New York last week, it was GREAT  to get some downtime this weekend!

Today’s blog IS ON THE QUESTION OF SHAPE FOR A RUG. I am constantly being asked by my clients, is there such a thing as a standard shape when considering a rug?

And ironically enough this past week I was working on the same topic.  I am designing a media room with a lounge area and found myself getting really tired of always using rectangle area rugs and squares.

So I put my own advice to the test in this project and low and behold the use of a circular rug was the absolute correct answer!

I have put the floor plan as an idea and some examples of how traditionally modern  rug, that is put off the center, can really make a furniture grouping look hot!

The rule of thumb when it comes to a traditional seating area is to always have at least eight inches from the back of the sofa and to have all the seating actually sitting on the area rug.  Everyone is always concerned about having a piece of furniture half off and half on.  It makes for very wobbly furniture.

Enjoy the examples!

Tomorrow is vendor day! So stop by  and read who is highlighted this week!

Have a great day!

Jamie
