Rug selection help needed
I'm struggling with what rug to purchase to go with our new furniture. I am including a pic of new chairs and table plus the chairs in the show room with one rug we are considering. The rug is dark and the designs in it match the colors in the chair perfectly. I don't feel the patterns clash because the rug is muted. Our couch and ottoman (not yet delivered) are going to be dark brown with matching patterned throw pillows. I am afraid the rug may make the room too dark with the dark couch, ottoman, TV stand and end table.
The sales person at the furniture store rec the lighter version of the rug to contrast the dark furniture. See picture. I'm not sure the colors work and am afraid the pattern is too much in this rug.
Another option is a tan non-patterned rug, but one with texture. Maybe shag?
I'm also including a photo of the piano and art work that will hang above it.
The walls are BM bar harbor beige and my floors are natural wood.
Any advice will be appreciated! Thank you!
