Q: We want a rug to pull our living room together and give it a cozy feeling, but we are on an extremely tight budget. Will this brown HERRUP rug from IKEA work in my living room that is basically all solids? And where should we put it? I was thinking right in front of the couch, but there is also that area in front of the fireplace, between the tv and the chair/ottoman. Will it look lopsided with the rug only on the area in front of the couch and nothing in the space in front of the fireplace?:
Also, if you have any other (VERY cheap) rug suggestions, I would love to hear them. I really do like the HERRUP rug a lot, I just don't want our living room to feel too dark and/or boring.
