How to choose the right size rug under your sofa table

When it comes to choosing the right size rug for under a sofa table, there are a few key factors to consider.


Table size

The first is the size of the sofa table itself. Ideally, the rug should be large enough to extend at least a 30 to 60 cm beyond the table on all sides, creating a border that frames the piece of furniture.


Room size

Another important consideration is the size of the room in which the sofa table and rug will be placed. In a larger space, a larger rug may be more appropriate, while in a smaller space, a smaller rug may be more suitable. Additionally, the layout of the room should also be taken into account. For example, in a room with a lot of open space, a larger rug may be more fitting, while in a room with more furniture and accessories, a smaller rug may be better suited.


Rug shape

When it comes to the shape of the rug, a rectangular or oval rug is often the best choice for under a sofa table. This is because these shapes tend to complement the shape of a sofa table and can help to create a cohesive look in the room. However, if you are looking for something more unique or modern, a round or square rug may also work well.



In terms of material, wool rugs are a popular choice for under sofa tables because they are durable and long-lasting, as well as being comfortable underfoot. Other materials such as synthetic fibers, cotton or jute are also suitable, but wool is known for its softness, durability and natural fire resistance.

When it comes to pattern and color, the options are endless. You can choose a neutral-colored rug that blends in with the surrounding décor or opt for a bold, colorful rug that makes a statement. If you have a lot of patterns in the room, a solid-colored rug can help to balance things out, while a patterned rug can add visual interest to a room with mostly solid-colored furniture and accessories.



In summary, when choosing a rug for under a sofa table, it's important to consider the size and shape of the table, the size of the room, and the overall style and aesthetic of the space. Opt for a rectangular or oval shape, wool material and a non-slip backing. The size of the rug should extend at least a foot or two beyond the table on all sides, and the pattern and color of the rug should complement the surrounding décor.

One important thing to note is that it's best to choose a rug with a non-slip backing to avoid accidents, or add a non-slip pad under your rug, particularly if you have children or pets. Our Anti-Slip™ mat prevents slipping, is organic and sustainable. You can find it here
