Rugs & Textile Wall Art
Area rugs and textile wall art instantly add warmth and texture to any room. Moreover, area rugs offer the added benefit of delineating space within a large room or open-concept floorplan. Use an area rug to ground a living room seating arrangement, master bed, or home office setup. Choose a rug with neutral tones to complement a serene aesthetic or opt for a brightly hued living room rug to add a pop of color to your space. Give your home a textural boost with textile wall art and area rugs from Herman Miller. Plus, shop Herman Miller for more wall decor, including George Nelson clocks.
Herman Miller Area RugsWhen shopping for a living room rug or bedroom rug, it’s important to consider the size of the room to determine the best size rug. A rug that’s too large can overwhelm a space. Conversely, a rug that’s too small can look misplaced. Standard large area rugs, an optimal choice for living rooms and bedrooms, usually range in size from 5’x8’ to 9’x12’. When choosing a rug size, the best practice is to account for 18 to 24 inches of clearance around the rug. For a dining room, choose a rug that can center under your entire dining set, including table and chairs. Office rugs should be large enough to cushion your entire desk setup, with room for a swivel chair to move freely without catching on the edge of the rug. If you find yourself rolling your chair from your desk to other spots around your office, opt for an office area rug big enough to cushion the whole space. In a kitchen or hallway, opt for a long, narrow rug runner that provides comfort underfoot and adds visual intrigue to these high-traffic spaces.
At Herman Miller, discover large, patterned rugs, including brightly colored geometric motifs and soft neutral tones with subtle stripes.
