Add Pizazz to Dining Room with Mid Century Modern Green Rug

The classic warmth of a family space like the dinner table is highlighted perfectly with a green rug which contains blue-green and blue. In an overall minimalist space highlighted with pink and red modern art and a modern dining table, the rug helps to move the eye around the room. The sea-green and blue tones in the rug works well against the dark brown woods of the floor and dining table. The green rugs also makes the red of the art and the chairs pop.
Without the green rug, the space would be unbalanced toward the art and the surrounding area could easily come off as too plain. With the rug’s simple pattern and lush texture, the sharp and smooth surfaces of the area are softened. The rug serves as a powerful balancing force.
Add Warmth to Mid-Century Modern Living Room with Green Rug

Green rugs can also be used in spaces that already have abundant patterns. For instance, the plant life outside the window takes on a pattern-like appearance that works well with the houseplant and pattern on the wall treatment. Since this entire space is characterized by soft and rounded shapes, green rugs in this space don’t have to match to work well. In this instance, a geometric pattern sharpens the design and adds a note of structure to an otherwise ephemeral aesthetic.
The depicted rug has a relatively low pile, which helps its texture blend in with the fabric of the couches. At the same time, the green in the rug connects the indoor space to the outdoor aesthetic of the plants.
Bring Calm Energy to Dining Room with Green Rug

With green drapes all round and several houseplants, this dining room is already dominated by greens of many shades. In such a room the large scale geometric pattern of the green rug provides the structure that holds the rectangular dining table and chairs with many different rounded and squared shapes. The rug also visually pulls together the artwork with its linear and angular elements. Without the rug the room would look disjointed and even chaotic.
In this instance, the rug does more than bring together linear elements, it also makes the room feel warm and inviting. The shade of green brings out the beauty of the dark woods of the dining table and chairs. The choice of a light color for the floor was wise as it makes the room look well lit. A dark wood floor with all the green drapes would have made this room look too somber.

The geometric pattern of the green rug has a calming effect on the room. The rug unifies the different shapes of the upholstered chair, ottoman, glass table, lamp and the bench by the window. This living room contains objects with many different shapes, colors and patterns, yet it looks very calm because the rug connects them into a harmonious design. The large scale geometric pattern of the rug serves to visually link the flat color of the wall to the more active visual textures of the furniture, keeping the space vibrant and also tranquil.
Green rugs bring natures calming and invigorating energy that can unite many disparate elements into a harmonious design. With many possibilities offered by green rugs in different shades of green and in different patterns and textures, these rugs are an excellent choice for creating chic and inviting interiors.
