Add Colour and Warmth With Area Rugs

Area rugs add warmth, colour and texture, often providing the perfect final touch that makes a room feel complete. They can also help to define a space, ground furniture, protect flooring, muffle sound and of course, add comfort underfoot. The rug you choose will depend on the size of the space, your personal taste and your lifestyle - those with small children and pets, for example, will likely want to opt for a rug that is highly durable and easy to clean. Fortunately, West Elm Canada's collection of area rugs includes a wide array of colours, patterns, styles and materials. From sheepskin to sisal, Moroccan to Persian, there is almost no end to the variety of rugs available to adorn your home.
