Oval area rugs are an interesting change from the standard rectangle rug and can be used to create a graceful visual impact. The rounded edges give a soft appearance and an oval rug can help soften a room that appears to be too angular or square.
Visual interest can be created by mixing oval rugs with different shaped furnishings - try a rectangle shaped coffee table on top of an oval rug. But if you are looking for a continuum of style, decorators suggest an oval rug with a oval table. No matter which way you use them, an oval rug can instantly revitalize a tired room.
Many of the oval rugs here at House of Area Rugs are also available in rectangle and round, what this means for you is you can get the same style rug for different areas of the room to create a unified look.
