Area rug on top of wall to wall

Hi everyone, I laid an area rug over a wall to wall carpet to break up the area in our long living room. I have it flush up against the entertainment center and on the opposite side it goes under the couch and the front legs are sitting on it. On the width side of the carpet I have a love seat with just one leg over the edge of the area rug. I have noticed some bunching in between the couch (side ways) and the love seat. I was assuming this was because the area rug came rolled up. I can't get it to lay flat - it has some ripples in it. I went ahead and moved the love seat leg off of the edge thinking that might be the problem. Can anyone give me some suggestions as to how I can get this section to lay flat? The other end is just fine. I was going to get some flat blocks to lay on it but wonder how long that would take - not sure I would want flat patio blocks laying around in my liv room too long. But, if anyone has experience with this, I would greatly appreciate some advice.
