Good Questions: What Size Rug Should I Get?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

I'm planning on getting a white flokati to go along with my mid-
century like decor (imagine a womb chair in place of the folding chair). My Living room is L shaped with a piano and home office at the other end of the long part of the L which is not showing (the short part of the L is the entry and kitchen/dining area)...

The living room area is defined by the two windows on one side and
staircase/piller opposite. I thought it would be best not to have
the rug under the couch (the better to show off the beautiful
stainless legs on my new Ligne Roset "Stricto Sensu" couches).

If I get a rug that centers between the couches and the knoll chair I feel the rug will be too small! Is it okay for the rug to go under the knoll chairs, but not under the couch? I've included a photo w/o rug, a photo with 4'x 6' newspapers and a photo with 7'x9' newspapers.
