A Graphic Rug

A bold pattern on the floor gives a focal point to a room with a mix of furniture styles—it’s a unifier. To ease into the look, start with a neutral sisal, top it with a subtle stripe, then put the showiest rug on top. Worried about pattern overload? A solid (rather than glass) coffee table can mitigate the effect.
