What size and color rug would work best in this area?

Looks to be a sunroom, so I'm thinking a large sisal bordered with your accent color and large enough for both sofas to sit on.

Possibly a blue and white oriental rug.

Only the front legs of the furniture need sit on the rug, and even that is flexible, so minimum 5 x 8, then a 6 x 9 if you can find that size, and after that about 8 x 10 which seems too large.

Actually, I like a coffee table to be no more than 18" from the sofa, and while that seems to work for the sofa on the right, the loveseat on the left seems too far removed from the coffee table to be able to use it. I suggest getting rid of the skirted table as it looks dated. The other pieces are beautiful and I'm envious as I adore wicker.

A company named Dash and Albert (after a pair of dogs, I believe) offers the lovely striped rugs shown below in the 6 x 9' size which I believe could work for you. I like the rug with the blue, green and yellow stripes in the photo, second from right, I believe.
