Round rugs are an unexpected counter to the more conventional rectangle. Just that unusual twist on the shape can enliven the experience of a room. Take a look:

The circular shape of the rugs in these examples offsets the rectalinear nature of floors, walls, openings, and much of the furniture. Additionally, in living rooms, the shape seems to enhance the coziness and intimacy of the seating arrangements.

Have you ever used a round rug in your home? Did you find it created a new dynamic that simply isn't achieved with a rectangle?
