We often see living rooms without a clear definiton of space. A rug can make or break a room. Rugs create LINES which will add DEFINITION to a space and tie your furniture together. Choose a rug that incorporates shapes and colors found in your furniture to create an inspired space. 

 

This space is so TALL and open that defining the space is crucial. This furniture arrangement creates a  more comfortable living space defined by the parameters of the rug.

This rug under the chaise lounge is a great divider between spaces. It creates boundaries without inhibiting flow in a space.

ZestyNest

These two rugs divide this living space beautifully. There are two clear seating areas grouped around each rug, utilizing the large space. We also love how each rug is the same design in opposite colors- so pretty!
