Do I need a rug in this seating area?

I've been thinking about getting an area rug to go in front of the couch, just under the chair legs and up to the fireplace???? Maybe in a silver blue ???? Is there a rule for rug size in a seating area? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated !

How about staying with the blues, darker than your pillows and more toward the tone of the water color in the art work over the fireplace.

Since there is no TV, how about changing the direction of the 2 chairs so that they are oriented towards instead of away from the sofa? I like the Gramercy rug suggested above.

Thanks! That's a good idea but the TV is in cabinet to the right of the fireplace.

I would definitely put down something warm and thick, silver doesn't sound bad at all. Consider a shape like a round or a large oval. Or consider the attached Mission Arts and Craft type of a rug from Shaw. We can help you with a custom rug as well possibly a border rug or geometric design. Aquamarine and Sable Brown would pop.

Agreed, an area rug would help soften the color and wood flooring in the room.

Dear bellesum,
I moved the chairs..... After I thought about it....we don't even use that TV that's in the cabinet ! Love, love love the new arrangement ! I also like the Gramercy rug and now think that the size of it would look better with the new arrangement !
Thank you so very much!

Amazing transformation in a short time! Congratulations! Just wanted to add that if you get an even larger size of the same area rug where more floor space is covered and most of the chairs are sitting on it, it would look even more amazing, especially from an aerial view.

bellesum: I like the size of the rug because I can easily take it up. I am a cleanie, I use an irobot Scooba to mop my hardwood floors and this is going to work fine! Thanks again! :-)

Thank you craljh! Maggie is sweet! This is her house, she just lets us live here! :-)
