Help me make my rug obey.
posted by lpsguy to home & garden (6 answers total)
In our main living area we have a modern wool area rug (8'x8') laid over carpeting with a coffee table positioned right in the middle of it. The table is a clear glass square with a heavy square marble base (1.5 x 1.5'). We love the rug and the table and the way they fit into the living area. So what's the problem? The weight of the table pushes down into the rug and causes wrinkles all over and all the way out to the edges. I've cut various sized squares of wood to put beneath the table base but still the problem persists. I fear the wrinkles have become permanent. I can't imagine why supporting the table on a solid piece of wood (so as not to allow it to push down and dent the plane of the rug) isn't working. Any idea on how I can get my rug to lie flat under this table? Or am I doomed as long as I insist the table stays where it is?
