Question:

Rug: what size do i need; ie how much larger than table should it be?

Also, would jute be good as i imagine lots of spills. Any ideas? And, doI really need a rug pad? Thanks!

Answer:

Design rule is that your rug should be 24 behind the chair with someone seated. Mine is much less, maybe 12-18 and works fine. Jute will work but it's a bit hard to clean. On the plus side, it doesn't show spills too much. If you have cats, they might think that you bought it for their scratching needs. Invest in a good rug pad if you want to extend the life of your rug, or the rug is thin or stiff enough to slip.
