Often, the only thing left to bring your room together is the accent piece that serves as the perfect focal point to the space. While a gorgeous coffee table can bring plenty of style into the living room, there’s nothing quite like the way a set of well-layered rugs soften the most relaxing room in the home.
From industrial themed rooms to bohemian inspired living rooms, we’ve rounded up 12 rooms that show us the right way to layer rugs.
Bringing Balance with the Cowhide Rug
The cowhide rug can make the room feel extra dynamic with its irregular shaped cut, wonderful for masculine or minimal interiors.
We love the coziness it brings when furry softness is pared down with plain rugs.
Pile Those Prints
If you prefer a more creative alternative to styling your living room, draw inspiration from these rooms with a playful touch. Mix and match your favorite printed rugs and pile them on top of each other diagonally.
One of the best things about layering is the countless color options it brings. You can add a layer that matches the warmer or cooler tones of the room without going monochromatic.
Lines and Symbols
There’s no need to go crazy with colors if you’re up for a more muted living room. A plain rug paired with a smaller striking rug can give your room the extra dimension it needs to stay vibrant.
