Underneath It All
By placing a large area rug directly underneath furniture, living room dwellers are given a comfortable sitting area without the pain of installing carpets.
Area rugs don't have to line up in perfect symmetry. Here, designer Andreas Charalambous complements the different angles and recesses of this dining room by placing the neutral rug off-center.
Take a Seat
This large area rug carpets the majority of this sitting area, allowing guests to get comfy on the floor as well as the couch.
Designer Erinn Valencich places an area rug in line with an oversized mirror to elongate a small space.
