Ninon Doucet Shag Rugs March 26, 2018 23:03:53
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!
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.
Remember when shag rugs and shag carpeting was a cultural staple during the disco era of the 1970s? And remember that they only came in the most obnoxious colors like brick orange and swamp green? Aside from the strange color choices no one could really deny the softness and comfort that made shag rugs and carpeting popular. With that said shag rugs are making a strong comeback in the home decorating market and why wouldnt they? Unlike ordinary rugs shag rugs add that extra pop in style for any home.
And last in the list of quality shag rugs is one thats also known as the "Shaggy" rug due to its appearance. Its more formally known as the Cotton Jersey shag rug and is made from short thick strands which means that its appearance comes across as much more dense. Not only are these rugs comfortable to walk on or sit on but its one everyone just enjoys being around perhaps due to its coziness. As such this makes the ideal rug for both young and old as well as the rebellious at heart.
The shag rug really is popular right now and that is probably because of its diversity. A rug that can be used in just about any room to add style and texture is great! While shag carpeting will likely not be seen as it was in the past shag rugs are very popular for the time being.
No longer are consumers limited to just atrocious looking colors when theyre shopping for shag rugs. With colors that line the entire spectrum of the Pantone rainbow finding the right rug for your home has never been easier. Additionally shag rug designs arent just limited to one solid color; stripes patterns and even tie dye patterns are the newest rage in contemporary rug artistry.
