The overlapping area rugs going in two different directions adds a quiet exclamation point to one cozy scene. A favorite, for sure.
Aside from the inviting, eclectic aesthetic of layered area rugs of various size, shape and color, it is also a fine economical answer to covering more space on a tight budget!

Have a wonderful weekend!
