Introduction to Shag Area Rugs
Shag style rugs have a pile that is so long it doesn’t stand upright, giving a carpet that distinctive “shaggy" look. The style was popular during the 1960s and 1970s, and is currently enjoying a massive resurgence in popularity in the home décor market. Constructed from high quality, durable materials such as bamboo, silk, wool, and leather, most shag style rugs are made from synthetic fibers due in part to its high pile that can easily get caught in vacuums. Despite the extra maintenance and upkeep of a shag style rug, a shaggy rug brings an inviting feel to your space and floors. The squishy and plush fabrication of shag area rugs is irresistible, and they add visual interest and glamour to your floor. Today’s modern rugs are eclectic and fashion forward, and are an easy design pick-me-up when your décor is feeling uninspired. They contrast well with high shine, metallic accent furniture, and rich fabrics such as leather and suede. Shag style rugs no longer bring to mind those cheesy floor coverings you remember in basements covered in wood paneling; instead they’re a sumptuous and splendid addition in any room from your living room to bedroom.
Different Styles of Shag Area Rugs
No longer just a throwback to the 1960s and 1970s, today’s area shag rugs come in contemporary patterns and styles in a deluge of colors. You can get excited with a shaggy rug that comes in shades designed to fit your mood. Colors range from bright and cheerful shades like pink, yellow, orange, and teal rugs; bold and beautiful shades: with silver rugs, purple rugs, and red rugs; clean and sophisticated: including white rugs, ivory rugs, cream rugs, and beige rugs; and neutral shades like gray rugs, black rugs, navy rugs, and brown rugs. When the fun and furry look that a shag style rug brings is enough added flair for your space, the versatile look of a black shaggy rug, navy blue, or white shag area rug is the perfect way to add texture and visual interest without muddying the color palette of your existing home décor.
