A "rug" is more a Vorleger, I would say.

I respectfully disagree. According to Britannica's website "Both in Great Britain and in the United States the word rug is often used for a partial floor covering as distinguished from carpet, which frequently is tacked down to the floor and usually covers it wall-to-wall." Living in Austria, If you shop on ikea's website or hm's website, there is a section for Teppiche which are small, partial floor coverings (rugs) and not wall to wall (carpets). Rug should be accepted.
