It is no wonder why gray sofas are an excellent match for oriental rugs. Due to the basic and neutral grey tone of the sofa, the area rugs can be as intricate as desired. Experimentation with various patterns and colors won’t be hindered since the grey hue of the couch won’t overshadow or eclipse the rug. Try options such as placing multiple smaller sized rugs around the room, or opt for one large rug instead. Your grey sofa can even sit on top of a portion of the rug.
