Bridget Ambrose Rug Recommendations

Bridget was struggling to find the perfect runner for her kitchen. She sent us some photos of the space (including detail shots) and a must-haves list. 

Here's the must-haves list she shared with us:

1. The rug must coordinate with all existing finishes, including the gorgeous cork flooring and all of the yummy textiles in the dining nook. 

2. The rug must be functional for real-life cooking.

3. The size must be under 3' x 9' but long enough to proportionally balance the island, so no shorter than 7'. 

Option 1: Vintage Pastel Runner |  2' 9" x 8' 6"

Pros: The light + bright colors really pop off the medium tone floor. The pattern is a good medium scale that works great with the small scale texture in the floor and the textiles in the dining nook. The style of this rug adds a light + airy vibe to the kitchen. 

Cons: The light color and visible warp + weft in the rug aren't ideal for cooking messy meals, but the rug could be easily rolled up and removed as needed. 

Option 2: V is for Vintage Runner  |  2' 5" x 8' 8"

Pros: The thick wool pile will provide cushion for standing and spills will be easy to clean up. The ivory field keeps the rug bright and the small scale pattern will be forgiving as the rug is used overtime. The style of this rug (hamdan) goes great with the earthly style of the space. 

Cons: This rug is slightly on the longer side for the space.

Option 3: Flat Weave Runner  |  2' 11" x 7' 10"

Pros: The rug proportions are great with the island. The neutral colors go nicely with the existing finishes and the geometric pattern keeps the look interesting. The style of this rug fits in perfectly with the overall vibe in the kitchen.  

Cons: The colors in this rug might make the cabinets look more blue than gray. The flat pile won't add cushion underfoot.
