The color and texture of the rugs you select for a room play a large role in setting the mood in the room. There are an amazing number of rug sizes patterns and textures to choose from.

Thanks to the resurgence of modern shag rugs more traditional forms of the style are being rediscovered as well. Among these are Flokati rugs from Greece and Aros rugs from New Zealand. Both rugs use exceptionally soft wool as their material which is then processed and hand woven in ways that result in rugs of unmatched softness and value. These styles of rugs provide the same three-dimensional texture to a room that shag rugs do but their texture is more like powder puffs than the bushy effect of modern shags. The most heavenly aspect of Flokati and Aros rugs are the way they feel against the feet a luxurious softness thats virtually unmatched by any other style of rug. This makes Flokati and Aros rugs perfect for bedrooms where relaxation is a guiding principle.
