Furniture layouts naturally create boundaries around designated areas and pathways throughout the home. But in the case that the space is exceptionally large, these boundaries and pathways may not exist. Have no worries, the Mangas Collection of modular rugs by Gan Rugs form beautiful geometric pathways of wool and add character to large open spaces.

Just when you thought you ran out of space to place your furniture, the corners and nooks of the room look even more attractive to use. These tricky areas can be a perfect solution to your overflow of furniture. Better yet, these corners are forgiving to an abstract shaped cowhide rug.

From a popular architectural option to a steady trend, open concept spaces break down architectural barriers to encourage social living throughout the home. Interior design touches like round rugs create seating designations in the open concept space, between the kitchen and dining area without creating odd pockets of space around the carpet. Such rugs create a soft perimeter around the dining area that compliment the complex wall structure around it.

Large Living Room

Another space that benefits from designated areas for socializing, lounging, or tasking is a large living room. This can be accomplished by creating a layout of mixed-match rugs within close proximity of each other throughout the living room. When done well, the rugs add a great visual appeal and functionality.
