Hands down, the quickest and easiest way to transform a space is with an area rug. Since this room is casual, its floors are covered with a wool flat-weave rug, which is easy to care for, lightweight and easy to move around. Anytime you're using area rugs in high-traffic spaces, be sure to invest in a rug pad to ensure it stays in place and eliminates any trip hazards.
Add energy to your outdoor space with an all-season rug designed to stand up to the elements.

No need to worry about outdoor traffic: just hose the rug down to clean it.
