If you’re planning on decorating your dining room with Oushak rugs, you have many design choices at your fingertips. Dining rooms or dining areas are very important parts of your home. Whether you’re decorating a casual dining space off the kitchen or a formal dining room that can easily seat 20, you want the space where you break bread with your loved ones to be warm and welcoming.
Oushak rugs are perfect for dining rooms, with their soft textures and soothing colors. Their sophisticated and faded beauty adds a sense of elegant, lived-in coziness to any dining area. They can fit it with many types of décor and design schemes. If your dream dining space resembles the private dining room of a chic urban restaurant, use Oushak rugs mixed with cool, modern furnishings and choose elements that will highlight the room without overwhelming it. Sleek dark wood tables or ones made of glass make a dramatic statement. If you’re going to use Oushak rugs to create a laid-back dining area, pay close attention to the colors you use in the room. Oushak rugs often have soft, pastel colors that envelop a room in a light, protective vibe. Throw in some natural elements like warm paint colors, luxurious fabrics and textures and you’ll have a room that will keep your visitors wining and dining late into the night.

An Oushak Rug Anchors an Edgy Dining Room
Eric Cohler designed this dining room with a gray-blue, gold and coral Oushak rug and edgy window treatment and dark gray walls. Interior design by Eric Cohler.
New York designer Eric Cohler knows a thing or two about mixing modern drama and antique charm. Also holding the title of product designer, Cohler is skilled at making it seem like that Eames lounger and that Louis XVI-style console table were made in the same factory at the same time. His blends have earned him the moniker of “Mixmaster,” a title bestowed on him by interior design editors. His designs epitomize rooms that feel collected, not decorated.
This gray-blue, gold and coral Oushak rug pulls together the many different styles of fabrics and furniture in the most beautiful way. The taupe on the dining chairs is similar in tone, but every other element in the room works independently from the next…and it works! Everything does not have to match to be beautiful, but everything does have to play well together.
