Its official - shag rugs are back! These rugs were a big part of the 1970s design culture along with patterned wallpaper and lava lamps. And although Im not advocating for a complete retro rewind this is one 70s style whose return Im happy to celebrate. Heres why!
These are available in a variety of materials ranging from acrylic nylon cotton rayon wool yarn blends and a cotton base to keep it from slipping or a same sized rug pad can be used to keep your rug clean and anti slip. With changing lifestyles and fast paced life everyone looks for low maintenance carpets and rugs so shag rugs win hands down. Easy to clean and can be added in any decor makes then a very viable option when looking to redecorate any room. Available in innovative colors sizes and designs they fit into any decor and size of the room.
Color. Nowadays you can pretty much find a shag rug in any color including black brown white red green pink and all varying shades in between making it much easier to find a hue that blends in nicely with your other room decor.
The sophisticated appearance of a leather shag rug makes it an ideal choice for a modern style room. These rugs are durable and stain resistant. They are a good choice for an area rug or an accent rug. Because they hold up well in high traffic areas they also make a good choice for a hallway or entry way runner. The color and texture of leather shags also makes them a good choice for any room with earth tone colors and a nature themed decor.
Lets face it shag rugs brought about a cultural and design revolution. No longer are they considered the revolting rugs that you couldnt wait to throw out at the end of the year and no longer do they fall apart quite as easily. With better machine and handmade piling techniques an assortment of colors and patterns shag rugs are making a comeback!
Another option would be to purchase a rug with a color that will match a lot of different types of decor. For instance if most of your home has earthy tones then perhaps a brown shag rug would be appropriate because it will match most of your house decor regardless of which room you are in. If your home is more modern with stainless steel appliances and glass furniture then maybe a bold white or black rug would fit in nicely.
