Set the stage for an aristocratic scene with Aubusson rugs. Ornamented with rich botanic designs, these floor coverings are perfect for a classic atmosphere. Ground a piano bench with rose bouquet motifs, or anchor a clawfoot coffee table with ornate scrolls.

If you feel an Aubusson rug with traditional furniture looks a little old-fashioned, why not introduce one to a more contemporary space? A compact loveseat composed of sleek lines and clean angles will pick up the midnight blue of your new rug.

These Baroque-era beauties boast subdued shades that won't overwhelm your room. Pastel rugs are perfect if you need a pop of color in a predominantly-neutral area. Say, for instance, your walls and bedding are white. A rug limned with hues of pale blush or tarragon green adds a subtle, chalky hint of color to your surroundings.

Searching for something to play up a cool color palette? Go for blue and beige area rugs, and unify your decor with a bedside lamp in pale blue. Deep burgundy, meanwhile, adds a warm, historical flourish to your foyer at the base of the stairs. Create an interesting vignette with chairs and an accent table arranged below the staircase.

Once place just begging for a hint of extravagance is the dining room. Bring an interesting silhouette to this space with sculpted area rugs. The shaped contours will bring a sense of intrigue to a space dominated mainly by straight lines. For an added sense of softness, layer your table with a cascading tablecloth.

As a rule of thumb, it's usually best to pick a rug large enough to accommodate the back legs of your chairs, even when they're pushed away from the table. Fortunately, Aubusson rugs are generally large in size, alluding to the sprawling grandeur of a French palace.

It's generally a good idea to measure first: make certain that your new rug will be at least 24 inches larger than the table on all sides. An 8'x10' rug, for example, would be perfect for a table 4'x6' in dimensions.

If you're looking to add a nostalgic tone to your room, these Renaissance rugs are the way to go. There's just something about acanthus leaves that lends prominence to your entryway. Echo these leafy designs with a mirror framed in identical motifs. Neo-classical splendor will lend a distinguished air to your environs.

Take your pick from an array of French-style rugs, and emulate the tapestry-like opulence of these historical icons.
