Shag rugs first came to popularity in the late 1960s and early 1970s as an expression of the Pop Art movement. They began to lose their appeal as the movement waned and for a while shag rugs simply fell out of favor. However new manufacturing techniques to say nothing of a wide range of styles and colors have lifted shags from the scrap heap of decorating history.

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.

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.
