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.
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.
For fun in a family room or childs room add one or more brightly colored shags made of olefin. These rugs are inexpensive stain and fade resistant. Children would love to have some of the bright colors such as fresh nectarine purple berry or lime green added to their room. Alternating two electrifying colors in a block pattern adds even more spark to the room. A brightly colored striped shag instantly invites fun into the room. Shag rugs made from cotton tee shirt strips can also be a unique and colorful addition to a room with casual decor.
One thing we have as yet neglected to mention is that Flokati rugs are made with the wool from sheep that call either New Zealand or Greece their home. Our next rug we will be looking at is the Aros rug which like the Flokati is made from the wool of sheep in New Zealand. As such its texture is as soft as the Flokati but has its own unique appearance and manufacturing technique.
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.
