Which Rug to Go with Very Burgundy Couch?

Good Questions

Q: I recently painted my living room and am having a hard time picking out a rug to match my very burgundy couch. My only real criteria are that it can not be white or very dark, as I have two light colored large breed dogs that like to shed a lot and have been known to dig up the back yard and run into the house in the summer.

My boyfriend is more interested in a persian style rug while, I would prefer the earthiness of a jute rug. I am also completely open to other suggestions, as I feel a little lost on the subject. I am also considering drapes and switching out the throw pillows depending on my rug choice. Here are the ideas I have come up with thus far:

1: Preston Blue Tabriz Rug
2: Preston Blue Agra Rug
3: Hand-knotted Oriental Sea Blue Wool Area Rug
4: Desa Rug, Neutral
5: Chunky Wool & Natural Jute Rug

Thoughts?
