I could use some decorating advice.
We received a luxurious alpaca rug as a gift.
Good timing since our new apartment has a large and largely unfurnished living room.
I would like to put a rug beneath the alpaca so as to (1) help dampen sound, (2) protect our wood floors and (3) prevent the alpaca from sliding around much...
Because I am told that the alpaca rug will not endure significant foot traffic, I think I will protect the bulk of it by putting it beneath a translucent coffee table in between two loveseats.
Is all of this a bad idea?
If not, my question is what rug should I get beneath the alpaca?
Pottery Barn has these Sisal Rugs, but they are thin and I don't much care for the texture.
That being said, they probably wouldn't clash with the alpaca.
Any other ideas?
