You already know a rug is one of the best ways to instantly upgrade your space, but it’s time to think a little more outside the box—literally. Yup, we’re talking about round rugs. Round rugs aren’t as common as their rectangular counterparts, so they already add immediate visual interest. Plus, they also add a touch of softness thanks to their curved edges, and they tend to influence how you arrange things. While a typical 5’x7″ rug lends itself to being the center of a room, a rounded rug can divide up your space a bit: Stick one in the corner with an armchair and bam, you’ve got a cute reading nook. Below, we rounded up some of our favorite round rugs (heh) to add to your home so you can start shape-shifting your space pronto.
