Should area rugs in same room be the same pattern, need 2?

(2) 8 x 10 rugs, one to by sectional in living area and the other under dining table. As you enter the area (both rooms) you will see both rugs.
I've found 2 I like but not sure if I should take the chance of the rugs "clashing".
Please offer your advice.
Thanks Much!
