If youre thinking that because shag rugs have their roots in the 70s that means they limit your home design options think again. Purchasing a shag rug for your house doesnt automatically mean you have to find other retro furniture pieces that match your new rug. In fact I encourage you to do just the opposite! Shag area rugs are a wonderful addition to a room that features a contemporary style. Contemporary design often relies on sleek lines and smooth furniture and the texture of a shaggy rug provides the perfect contrast. This allows your rooms decor to achieve balance. The crispness of contemporary style can sometimes feel impersonal but a shag rug is a warm and welcoming piece that counteracts this impression.

Shag rugs come in a multitude of colors and the pile range depth is from one inch to about two and a half inch giving that luxurious softness and lush style. Usually rugs are tufted or woven in loops and then sheared to get the short fibers but shag rugs are left without shearing the length and that gives them that deep piled lush soft feel. If you are looking for an extra soft warm shag rug go in for rugs that have a high pile of over 2 inches. The shorter pile gives less warmth and softness.

Today shag rugs are made from a range of materials including acrylic cotton nylon polypropylene or synthetic blends. One version is made from cotton jersey in thick and thin textures as well as long and short strands.
