Q: We are soon moving to a new house and we are trying to design the living room area. We are keeping our (cream color) couch and accessories (orange/copper tones). We would like the room to be in shades of brown and burnt orange...

...with a 'zen contemporary' feel. In the pictures we have the furniture and accessories that will be in the space, as well as a glimpse of the wall and the view out of the window. Our main question is which of these two rugs goes better. Note that we don't have the coffee table yet, and we are open to getting a different one. Any comments and suggestions, general and specific, are very very welcome.
