A staple of trendy homes since they first came to prominence in the 1960’s and 1970’s, shaggy area rugs are the ultimate expression of comfort. The soft textures bring a sense of fun and relaxation into any home, and shag rugs come in some of the most diverse color palettes to be found in any type of rug. No matter if you’re a tried and true Flower Child, or a young urbanite, these rugs can add an instant lift to your home.
Many things fall out of style as the years go by, but shag has not only endured as the years have passed - it has experienced a renewed popularity in recent years, and with good reason. Shag offers a soft, luxurious feeling on the skin that’s perfect for living rooms, bedrooms, guest rooms, and anywhere else where you want to kick off your shoes and feel completely at ease.
Shag area rugs are also extremely adaptable, given the wide and expressive diversity of colors and designs available. Whether you prefer softer hues of subdued browns, creams, and blacks to create a mellow feeling throughout your space, or want to use dazzling shades of reds, blues, yellows, and even tie dye to inject a burst of energy that will make you want to dance, there’s a rug from the shag collection that’s perfect for you. These rugs are also perfect for striking a beautiful harmony between a retro look and feel, with the modern sensibility that younger generations love to showcase in their homes.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better.
