[dwell] Living Room Rug: Help Me Choose!

One of my goals this year is to purchase a rug that actually FITS our living room. Our living room is rectangular shaped: I wouldn't call it huge, but it's pretty big. However, we only have a 4x6 rug from Ikea on the floor. Embarrassing. I mean, it's been fine for the time being (almost three years... yikes), but we really want the space to feel more cozy, and we think a large rug will do just that!

Here are three of my favorites, all of which are from Urban Outfitters. And they're pretty reasonably priced: a)which is a surprise coming from Urban, and b)for 8x10 rugs, which are usually ridiculously expensive, yet the size we need for our space.

This zigzag rug is fantastic! Love the soft gray and white. I believe the 8x10 rug would be $169. Not too shabby for a rug this size!

I like the navy in this rug: and the herringbone pattern is so pretty: subtle, yet full of oomph! The 8x10 rug would be $199.

I think this pattern is so sophisticated and sleek. And again, the soft gray would be a beautiful choice (our current 4x6 rug is gray). So pretty! This is on sale for $169, woot!

Which is your favorite? Help me decide! I'm leaning towards either of the grays because we are used to that color already. But which pattern?! Or should I take a chance with the navy? Decisions, decisions. Too much of a good thing. What does your living room rug look like? Or do you have wall-to-wall carpet?

Happy Thursday!

  1. I like the first one the best!!

  2. I actually almost bought the chevron rug just a few minutes ago! What a fabulous sale! I would get the first or third :)
