Good Questions: Rug Color Suggestions for Our Dining Room?

Hello AT,

Long-time fan of the site here. My wife and I just moved into a condo, and we're looking for some suggestions - specifically, what color area rug we should put under our dining table. If for some reason colors are unclear, the wall on the left is a pale grey, the wall on the right, where the windows are, is a sort of gunmetal grey (an accent wall), and the chairs are Eames eiffel chairs in the orange/red. The table is a parsons, with steel base and a cherry-colored top.

Any/all suggestions regarding rug choice are appreciated. Thanks!

Yours, Andy

Dear Andy,

Very nice start! We like the way you've worked in some bright color along with the dark tones of the walls and table.

Our advice:

- Go bright to contrast with the floor and table
- Go warm to match the warmth of the grey and red
- For a more MOD look, consider adding pattern


- Sage green
- Rusty orange
- a touch of *yellow* for MOD feeling...

Below are two rugs that we found at the Rug Company that would be stunning:
