Rug Sets

A few Sundays ago I saw a great price on a set of four rugs in an ad from Macy's. The sizes were approximately 8x10, 5x7, 3x5, and a runner. All for $444. !! There were four color choices (red, black, navy, and cream) and all had an Oriental rug design.

**These aren't the actual patterns that were part of the sale... It's just a little sampling of what's available at Macy's online that I like.**

I fantasized a little bit about buying the set and putting the large rug over our wall-to-wall carpeting in the living room; the 5x7 under our dining table; the 3x5 in the entry; and the runner in front of the sink in the kitchen. 

For the first time ever, I was considering using the same pattern for all of the area rugs. And why not? Like I've mentioned before, we have an open floorplan in the main living area. The entry, living room, dining area, and kitchen are essentially one large room. Using the same pattern could be very cohesive, visually tying together the four distinct areas. 

Currently the two main rugs in our house have the same base color, which coordinates with the sandy-colored wall-to-wall carpeting. They move around quite a bit. The 4x6 sisal (from World Market) is usually either over the tile near the front door or too-small under the dining table. The 3x5 with pattern (from Target) is in the little space between the mudroom and the master bedroom, in front of the sliding glass door in the dining area, or by the sink. 

Ultimately there are never enough rugs in our house, which is why we move them around so much and another reason the 4 for $444 deal was so attractive. 

Even without the special pricing, using several of the same patterned rugs might not be a bad idea. I definitely feel a challenge to make it conform to my sense of style and not look old lady-ish. What do you think? Do you have any rug sets?


  1. Greetings,
    I do not own any rug sets,but I could really like the ones mentioned!! I have a very open den,LR,DR and kitchen, so I agree that matching rugs might be a perfect solution to grounding those spaces. The carpet in three rooms is a mingledy browny/goldy/green...actually VERY neutral, so the patterned rugs would work well! Thank you so much for the idea!
    Blessings to you and yours,

    1. Thanks, J! I'm glad that pattern could work for you! :)


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
