One great thing about rugs is that they can add so much color and pattern to a home, while rarely competing too much with other elements that seek attention. Rugs are a place where we dare to not worry as much about "matching" everything else. While a monochromatic room can be alluring if done well, our home tends to overlap in the colors and patterns we love; and because we love them, they tend to all work harmoniously. If this is how you operate, too, Jonathan Adler rugs can be ordered to combine any of 12 main colors, and patterns like Houndstooth (below) really get us going.
