That bigger size would also mean this more modern style of rug pattern would come a lot closer to the Persian-style blue rug in the dining room. Would they clash? Or would they work together okay, given a) they both have viney flowers on them, and b) I like the new rug just fine with the blue and white Indian block print fabric on the chaise?
I think I'm going to decide today, one way or another, and either buy a rug pad for this one, or go to the store and try to buy the larger size. I could, of course, buy the larger size, try it, and then exchange whichever works less well, but I already did that once (the 4x6 is too small, definitely), and I am feeling tired and my foot still hurts and I'm not wanting to schlep around a lot. So if we could figure it out this way, that'd be better.
