This is a nice-looking living room with smaller rug. Perhaps the key is to frame the rug with sofas / sofa and armchair combo / sofa and the window. And another trick is to fill up the room so the size doesn't look awkward.
A banquette adds plenty of needed storage and takes up less floor space than a stand-alone table and chairs. Easy-to-clean black leather tops the banquette benches and chair seats. The fabric also adds to the kitchen's black-and-white color scheme.
