I've noticed that the no-rug look is popular in Europe, where the floors are often made of beautiful wood, sometimes in parquet patterns — with floors like that, why cover them up? But as we can see here, a floor doesn't need the perfect patina to look good naked.
Do you like this bare-floor look, or do you think these rooms are missing something?
