The transformative power of a large area rug should never be underestimated. Open living is always splendid, but can feel a touch cold if spaces are not properly defined. Our sure-fire trick? An area rug will carve out individual rooms quite succinctly in a lofty space. Indulge in the elegant intricacies offered up by a Persian Malayer rug, or use a simplistic Scandinavian wool rug to ground a sofa, chairs, and coffee table. Either way, it’s a win.
