What size rug do I need?

The consensus among designers is to purchase a rug large enough to encompass all of your seating; an island if you will. But as we all know, large quality rugs can be extremely expensive. If  the largest rug is not in your budget and you must make do with a smaller size, follow this simple design rule: The front legs of the sofa and chair should sit upon the rug, the rear legs may sit directly on the floor.

“A small to medium size living room looks best with an 8’ x 10’ area rug.”
