1) If you want to create coherence, place your furniture partially on your rug (about 30 cm). You do this by placing the front legs of your sofa on the rug. This will make the interior seem connected.
2) Do you want to create an island? Then place the furniture entirely on the rug.
3) When the rug is in front of the legs of the sofa, the furniture stands out. The accent is not on the whole, but on the individual elements.
Are you looking for a rug for under the table?
Place the rug so that it sticks out a min. 60 centimetres and max. 90 centimetres. When you do this, you can slide your chair backwards without the chair sliding off the rug.
