Hello Martha. How far under the furniture should the rug go? Trying to decide how large of a rug to order. Tks

Area rugs should, at a minimum, be under the front legs of your seating - But it's better if it's under the entire sofa or chair as shown here.

What you don't want is a rug so small that it's floating out there like a little island surrounded by sofas and chairs

Can I go somewhere in the middle (between sofa legs) or should I pick either just under the front legs or all the way under the soft (under both legs)? Thanks again!

Thanks for the question! The above responses are great! You can have it either way, we do both ways, with the furniture completely on the rug and with the rug coming somewhere in between the furniture legs. Best of Luck!!
