Lets face it shag rugs brought about a cultural and design revolution. No longer are they considered the revolting rugs that you couldnt wait to throw out at the end of the year and no longer do they fall apart quite as easily. With better machine and handmade piling techniques an assortment of colors and patterns shag rugs are making a comeback!
You may have already decided on a color if you plan on buying a rug for a particular room. If not then you should consider what type of decor is presently in the room where you would like the rug to be. Do you have plans to buy new furniture soon or move furniture around? If you are contemplating a complete re-design of the room then you may want to wait on deciding which color you will go with until the furniture in your room is set.
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.
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.
Its important to find out that most people are not choosing to put in wall-to-wall shag carpeting. Shag rugs are used very sparingly but they are very effective in creating texture depth and warmth in a room. As popular as stone and wood floors have become in the main living areas rugs now need to have some more depth to them.

Lime chartreuse citrus orange fuchsia pink inky black natural brown canary yellow grape purple - choose a color scheme and theres a shag to match it somewhere. The combination of soft texture casual feel and nearly unlimited colors put shag rugs on many decorators "must-have" lists.
