Fifine Renaud Shag Rugs March 31, 2018 19:01:11
Its official - shag rugs are back! These rugs were a big part of the 1970s design culture along with patterned wallpaper and lava lamps. And although Im not advocating for a complete retro rewind this is one 70s style whose return Im happy to celebrate. Heres why!
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.
Next on the list we have Love Fur. Quite simply imagine a rug made out of faux fur and youd be close. This rug is made out of acrylic which when it comes to money means that its much more affordable in comparison to other types of rugs.
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.
So as you can see there is a rug for everyone out there. If youre having trouble choosing then it would be better to look at the rest of the furniture you may have and see which of the colors and/or textures will match best.
Apart from adding style and elegance to any room these beautiful rugs create cozy ambiance and softens the feel of hardwood or stone floors. For easy maintenance people prefer wooden and stone floors but like to walk on soft surfaces thus low maintenance shag rugs are immensely popular. Besides providing comfort and warmth shag area rugs absorb sounds which makes then ideal for large rooms.
