Suggestions for a Rug to Go With this Patterned Sofa?

Good Questions

Q: I have owned exactly one rug in my life. It was an IKEA flokati that was cheap, hid dirt and cat hair almost too well, and was quite versatile. I'm now the proud owner of this awesome and marginally comfortable sofa and living in a new apartment (haven't made it to the bookshelf yet...) that showcases the sofa as I always imagined. As I try to pull this room together, I'm faced with the challenge of finding the right not-a-million-dollar rug for the room. I'm a little pattern-timid but not opposed. I just don't even know how to start to choose. Help!
