Valery's Colorful Mix in a Brooklyn Brownstone


Large area rugs can transform modern rooms. Change an area rug and see instantaneous results--no waiting for contractors or workmen. Select that one irresistible color and pattern that calls your name, whether online or in a brick and mortar store. Bring it home yourself, or if you find it online, have it shipped directly to your front door. Then you do the hardest part, moving the furniture to make way for your new and exciting look.

We love how the pattern in the rug above plays so well with the oversized art in black and white and the deep red seats and backs on the woven chairs.

About area rugs in modern dining rooms

All sorts of dining rooms can benefit area rugs underneath the table and chairs. Under the table and chairs is the key to success with rug-placement in the dining. Be sure the size of the rug allows for plenty of room for dining chairs to be pulled out and still be resting on the rug. Also, rugs for the dining room should be chosen with care (the fiber from which a rug is made should allow for easy clean up) because accidental spills will happen.

From the gorgeous modern chandelier to the beautiful rug on the floor, this inviting dining room is a great example of how a retro space should look. And did we mention how awesome we think Tolix chairs are?

Live in an open loft?

Those who have the opportunity to live in the open space that is a modern loft have the perfect opportunity to use multiple area rugs to define the different “rooms” that are mostly undefined in a loft. Think living room, dining room, home office, bedroom, and even the kitchen. A rug can immediately define each area’s perimeter. 

The main thing to remember here is that in choosing the color and pattern of each rug, you should consider how each floor covering will fit into the overall look of the space. The goal should be to create a cohesive, complementary design aesthetic.
