Emeraude Costa Shag Rugs March 22, 2018 22:22:00
Shag rugs work really well in living rooms because they can anchor the sofa and a coffee table and such that is on wood or stone floors. A lot of the time furniture can look like it is floating in a room if there is not something with depth to hold it down or give it some definition and a shag rug is great at that. Many of the shag rugs that are used in living rooms are quite neutral in color but simply tie the room together and make it look more comfortable even if the flooring is very hard and even cold looking.
Material. Shag rugs are made in a wide variety of different material including wool chenille sheepskin leather olefin and even recycled t-shirts! When choosing a material you should take into consideration a few different things. Will the rug be located in a high traffic area? If so then you will want it to be made of durable material that can withstand a lot of foot traffic. Olefin or another type of synthetic material may be your best choice. If your plan is to use a shag rug to add warmth to a room then a high pile flokati rug may be an option to consider. Flokati rugs are made of 100% wool and come in piles as high as four inches adding softness and warmth to any room.
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.
One shag area rug that will cost you just that little bit extra though is the leather shag rug - usually made from cow hide or suede... or a combination of both. Like the Love Fur this shag rug is new to the scene but has already made quite the impression among those members of society who deem themselves a bit more refined.
These attractive rugs are perfect to separate the areas in the open floor plan houses but on the other side can even help make the room a unit by creatively using a rug. From being used as a hall runner to bathroom mats or rugs their thickness and softness makes then a well desired addition to any room.
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.
