This neutral dining room may be pretty basic in color palette, but it’s certainly heavy on the details. The box beam ceiling, chair rail, sconces, chandelier all bring the large space down to a cozier level. But because the edges and surfaces are hard (with the exception of those beautiful velvet chairs), the rug is an important component in softening the space, visually and acoustically. The contemporary pattern is busy enough to handle minor kid spills, but anything outside the two tones in the rug would likely stand out.
These rugs were hand knotted and sheared to an extra-long pile, embellished with knotted, tasseled fringes. While they are now special pieces for contemporary homes, they were created as utilitarian rugs meant to help warm nomadic tribes in cold temperatures.
A rug that has a vintage or antique design can definitely work in a more modern room! In fact, using a rug in a transitional room that blends vintage and modern styles together can be a great way to bridge the two looks. If you are designing a room that is contemporary, an antique rug that showcases similar colors to those used in the room can give it some personality.
I’ve always loved the look of rugs in a dining room. Something about the graphic on the floor set against (or to distract from?) the legginess of the table and chairs just makes me happy. However, as the mother of four young kids, I’ve come to view dining room rugs with a pretty critical eye. Can they gracefully handle spilled grape juice? Will you see this morning’s (or, let’s be honest, yesterday’s) smashed cheerios? Will the stain of an errant strawberry live with us forever?
