DEFIN­ING SPACE

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - 10 WAYS -

In a large, open-plan liv­ing room, rugs can help to map the lay­out by pro­vid­ing a fo­cus for each zone and a vis­ual an­chor for the fur­ni­ture. In the din­ing area, choose a rug that’s large enough to hold the ta­ble and chairs, even when peo­ple get up to leave. If the floor be­neath is stone or wood, this will pro­tect it from scratch­ing and muf­fle sound. A rug is the nat­u­ral cen­tre­piece for a seat­ing group, adding colour and po­ten­tially pat­tern and tex­ture, too. The fur­ni­ture should be placed fully or par­tially on the rug to create a com­fort­able zone for re­lax­ing.
