When I visited my grandmother in Arizona, I saw the first rugs on top of the carpet. I asked her why she had so much carpet on top of the rug.
She said that the shoes keep her warm and protect her floor.

How to layer rugs on top of carpet
No matter why you want to layer, there are a few ideas and tips that will help you make the most of this trend. It’s the right color, texture, size, and plushness that makes a huge difference between rug sales and a well-thought-out layering strategy.
Variate the textures
If you are placing a low-profile area rug on top of a carpet, make sure that both the carpet and the rug have lowered. If you place a low-profile area rug on top of a deep-pile cut wool, the wool will be compressed every time you step on it. The rug buckles and becomes a safety risk.
