Great article. I have an open floor plan - very small apartment. I have a square zebra pattern rug for the "living room" and trying to figure out would work for the "dining" room rug right next to it. Any help or suggestion would be welcome.

@Winston Otis: We were just discussing this rug issue with our open floor plan - small apartment. Our living room has a modern oriental rug style and it is also a bit difficult looking into rugs that would either match or compliment the dining room area. Furthermore, out dining table is oval but turns round when the leaves are popped out. We didn't expect a lot of pondering like this after we bought the table. Should we have started with the rug?
