Pierretta Michel Shag Rugs March 31, 2018 19:00:58
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!
You may have already decided on a color if you plan on buying a rug for a particular room. If not then you should consider what type of decor is presently in the room where you would like the rug to be. Do you have plans to buy new furniture soon or move furniture around? If you are contemplating a complete re-design of the room then you may want to wait on deciding which color you will go with until the furniture in your room is set.
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.
Shag rugs were in vogue during the 1960s and 70s and have made a popular comeback in the recent years. Soft plush and stylish shag area rugs make excellent area rugs and that is an important reason for being adapted in newly built and renovated homes. From retro decors to contemporary elegance shag rugs have taken the interiors by storm.
Like all other rugs shaggy rugs are made in a variety of colours and patterns. However solid colours are very popular with this style and are widely available on the market. The advantage of a rug in a solid colour is that you can go for bold colours like lime green without worrying that your choice will overwhelm the room. You can also find rainbow shag rugs available where different coloured yarns are blended evenly together to further emphasize the shaggy texture of the rug. Black and white combinations are especially trendy at the moment.
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.
