A Statement Rug Is Your 2018 Style Solution

Who: Sarah Sherman Samuel, designer

Where: Los Angeles, CA

Why we love this pic: This sophisticated space has all the makings of a high-style design. From the twin olive-green armchairs to the organic hexagonal coffee table juxtaposed with the modern chandelier, it nails high-end sophistication. And while those elements alone would be plenty sufficient for a beautiful room, the layered black-and-white area rugs take it to new textural heights with their statement-making design.

The takeaway: A bold statement rug works wonders to elevate a design.
