What shape rug goes under a round table?

As for rug shape, a round rug visually coordinates with a round table and curvy chairs, for example. The clean lines of a square rug, however, tie in with boxy chairs or a modern chandelier with square shades. For a square rug, measure out to the rug's sides, not its corners.

Correspondingly, should you put a round rug under a round table?

A rectangular room should have a rectangular rug. A square room should have a square rug. Round rugs aren't limited to round rooms, but they should be limited to rooms with round furniture arrangements (perhaps a dining room with a circular table ) or a pronounced round fixture (a foyer with a chandelier).

Can you put a round rug under a square table?

"A round table on a round rug is visually harmonious, but you can place a square table on a round rug too just make sure that the rug is considerably bigger so the shapes don't compete, and, for a dining table, that there is enough room under the chair legs to pull chairs back when seated at the table.
