Behind the Design: Area Rug – Anchoring the Space

The next step in my design process is adding an area rug. The right rug can anchor a space, making it feel balanced from top to bottom. Size is the most important factor to consider when selecting a rug.

RugOur firm has discovered the necessary clearances to optimize comfort and functionality in a dining space. You must consider space between chairs, knee-to-table and distance from the wall. This is especially important in moments like holiday dining celebrations. With proper clearances established, you can easily walk around the entire table to serve your guest or have plenty of space for caterers to operate with ease.

Also, you should be able to scoot out of your dining chairs comfortably without the legs of the chairs extending beyond the surface of the rug. This is crucial for ease of use. Take it from me, if you go with a rug that is too small you’ll be annoyed each time you leave the table.

This contemporary rug we chose for our ultimate dining space features an abstract color block pattern. The golden yellow accents add warmth to balance the pumpkin pie ceiling inset, while the magenta hues ground the New London Burgundy walls, instantly adding harmony to the space.

This high quality area rug is made of 100% wool and created by hand-tufting. Rugs constructed by this process are made to last for upwards of 20 years, even in high traffic areas. Watch the video below to see how this time-tested process works.

I always consider sustainability in my product selections. This rug is no exception. Our company prides itself on providing superior service to our clients from the initial design concept, to completion and beyond. Once projects are complete, we share aftercare information like our Rug Care and Cleaning Guide to encourage sustainability and longevity of the products we supply.

Thank you for designing with Robin Bond Interiors,
