Shag Rugs

Not Your Parent's Shag Rugs!

Shag rugs (and shag carpets too!) are likely bring to mind bad flashes from the 70's. Ah, the memories: Bright orange or puke green shag carpet perfectly complementing those Harvest Gold or Avocado appliances in your oh-so-stylish home...

But in contemporary designs, shag area rugs are back and are a staple. A shag rug is the perfect accent to warm up a leather couch. A shaggy Flokati rug feels wonderful on bare feet in a rustic bedroom. There is nothing like the thick, soft, fluffy texture of a heavy shag rug.

A shag area rug can keep any room warmer, more comfortable, and quieter. The thick wool is great to sit on or for nap.

Today's shags are not as difficult to care for as you might think. Although the traditional 100% wool Flokati shags require a little more care, you can find shags in nylon, poly blends, and even cotton. A lot of shags can even be tossed in the washer and come out softer than ever.

A modern shag rug is much more versatile than in the past. Available in almost any color you can imagine, there is a shag area rug for almost any home. It can make a formal living room more inviting, a bedroom more peaceful, and the brightly colored versions can cheer up any teen's room.

Whether for the ultimate bachelor pad with the shaggy fur rug in front of the fireplace or the comfortable family room with shag for the kids and dog, shag-pile rugs add a modern touch to any decor.
