Pairing a White Rug with a Brown Couch
Not only do white rugs go with everything, they do a wonderful job of bringing out the rich undertones of warmer colors such as brown. But if you do opt to pair a white rug with your brown couch, remember that color isn’t the only way to create contrast. Creating contrast through textiles, such as by pairing a plush shag rug with a buttery leather sofa, calls attention to the overall cozy feeling of your living room – while allowing color to play with texture, and vice versa.
Pairing a Brown Rug with a Brown Couch
If the point of placing a rug under a couch is to help create harmonious contrast, then pairing a brown rug with a brown couch may seem counterintuitive. But before you cross off brown rugs from your list of possible mates for your lonely brown couch, make sure you’ve considered every possible shade of brown.
