I love this statement made by an Est Magazine writer. Styling a home with round rugs requires a unique taste. Traditionally, rectangle rugs are preferred for their clean lines and ease of filling a room, but maybe you want something a little different. Maybe you have an odd shaped room? In any case, round rugs are no longer being used in dining rooms alone. Indoor/Outdoor options are available for patio use, living rooms can be styled with large rounds, and a round rug in a foyer can create a cozy landing strip.
Mimic the same rules for the living room when using a round. The front legs should be touching and grounding the rug. It makes a perfect compliment to a round coffee table if you have one.
You can also purchase a round large enough to fit all or most of the furniture on like pictured here:

Hooked indoor/outdoor rugs are ideal in foyer areas because they are high trafficked and make the first impression. Kaleen makes beautiful round rugs with their Home and Porch collection - everything from traditional to contemporary in trendy patterns like this chevron pictured here. Likewise, these are the perfect patio solutions under a bistro set during those summer barbecues.
