We ran across this great tip from  Gabrielle Savoie via MyDomain.

"A rust-colored luster velvet sofa mixed with a black Turkish rug and an edgy metal drum stool will elevate the sophistication factor of a living room. In this light and bright living room, all the colors are pulled from the rug to create a coherent look."

A formula, not a rule! You can do this with any color scheme. So we did. What do you think of this version of the formula?


We started with the rug, which is almost always the best and easiest place to start. Either the rug or the sofa should be your starting point. This Bamyam Peshaver is so beautiful. The key characteristic of Bayyam rugs is their sheen. The wool is so fine that it shimmers. Bamyams are the best of the Peshavers and are instantly recognized for their high quality.

Next, the sofa. Vanguardhas long been recognized as a top-of-the-line furniture maker. They proudly continue to craft upholstery and hand-finish casegoods in America. NW Rugs & Furniture is thrilled to offer this line in our Agoura Hills Showroom on Canwood Drive.

Let's find a coffee table and something to set our drink on. Since this sofa has some leg, we figured a lighter accent table would be best. This is from Gabby Furniture, which is available in all of our showrooms (Oregon, California & Nevada). This is the "Jackie".

For the coffee table, let's contrast with something solid and that picks up some more colors from the beautiful area rug. We went with Vanguard again for the coffee table. The finish on this and the cocktail table work so nicely together, don't you think?

And there you have it - so easy anyone can do it. Give it a try. If you'd like some assistance, our design consultants can make it even easier.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
