How To Get Polyolefin Rug to Lie Flat?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I recently bought a beautiful area rug for my living room, but it won't stay still or lie flat. It's 100% polyolefin. My living room is carpeted (low pile). The rug seems to slowly creep across the floor. If I put any furniture on it, such as sofa legs or a coffee table, it buckles. Help!
