Smaller budget-friendly rugs can work to get a size that allows just the front legs to sit on the rug or try no legs on the rug.
On the other hand, to fill an entire room, go with a rug that will be at least two feet from walls and who says you have to settle for one rug, try a smaller rug on top of a larger one.Two different rugs can help define a sitting area. You can even use a rug over carpet just be sure to use carpet tape to keep it from moving and don't be afraid to use shapes other than a rectangle round.
Rugs are great for seating, vignettes, passageways and entrances in dining rooms. The rug should extend at least two feet beyond the size of the table on all sides.
