My living and dining area is a large loft like space that I am working on furnishing. I am sort of a minimalist, but I wouldn’t say my taste is contemporary. I want there to be some warmth and sense of history in the room, without the clutter. I am considering bringing in a patchwork rug to place under my dining area and the two I have looked at are pictured above. My table is a very dark (almost black) wood with bronze legs. The first one is the Cadiz Wool Rug from West Elm. It is shown in a striking Ink color which I love, but I am afraid should be used as an accent. The second rug I am considering is the Havest Rug in Teal from Stepevi. The subdued blue shades will anchor the room without screaming color. Let’s see if I can come to a decision after the table is delivered later this week.
