Shag Rugs hearken back to the 1970s and '80s when you could find them in every home around the country. While the popularity of shag rugs died down a bit for a few decades, today, Shag Rugs are making an impressive comeback.

Today, modern and trendy decorators embrace the shag rug, using it in apartments, homes, flats, and more. While some people may claim they are outdated if you know – you know.

Are you ready to embrace the look of the shag rug in your home? If so, we have all the options, sizes, and styles you could want or need. Keep reading to learn more about Shag Rugs and then browse some of our top sellers, such as our Boho Moroccan White Navy Rug or our Soft Shag Rug in Camel.

Getting to Know the Modern Shag Rug

Shag Rugs were named because of their distinctive appearance, which involves a shaggy, uneven pile that's an inch or thicker. You can find shag rugs in several colours and different materials, including cotton, and wool.

Extremely soft when touched, shag rugs can complement an array of decorating styles, including glam, modern, or contemporary.

Different Types of Shag Rugs

You can find several types of shag rugs to choose from. These include:

Flokati

When it comes to fluffy shag rugs, this option is at the top of the list. Some compare it to a sheepdog, and these rugs are usually made using 100% wool, including the backing.

While they are usually cream or white in colour, they can be dyed to add a "pop" of colour where they are used.

Wool

Wool is another type of material used for shag rugs and used to create rugs that are described as "shaggy" or a "noodle."

Noodle construction means the wool fibres are twisted into a noodle shape, which creates a luxurious and soft rug. If you prefer a shaggier construction, then thinner fibres are used that are placed much closer together than what is used for the noodle rug.

The upside of this design is that the rug is easier to clean and maintain.

Synthetic

A synthetic shag rug doesn't offer the same lifespan or quality as wool, but they are easier to clean and more affordable.

Choosing this material gives you the ability to try new patterns and colours without spending too much.

Options to Consider When Choosing a Shag Rug

Along with different materials, there are a few other considerations to make when choosing a shag rug. These include:

Colours

A shag rug dyed with vibrant colour is a great way to spice up any room. You can choose a colour that contrasts or complements your furniture.

If a bright colour doesn't work, then consider a neutral shag rug, such as the Austin Plush Shaggy Rug in Grey, for an understated, classic look.

Shapes

For smaller spaces, consider square or rectangular-shaped rugs, which can help warm things up. If you have a bigger room, consider using a round shag rug, such as our Round Soft Shag Rug in Camel, which will make a statement. Put it right in the centre of the room to add a focal point and unique style.

Getting the Right Shag Rug for Your Space

Choosing the right rug for your space is a big decision. It's going to impact the look and feel of the room where it is used.

Make sure to find a colour, size, and style that meets your needs to ensure you get the results desired from the rug you ultimately purchase.

Remember, you have many options, so carefully consider what will go well with your space to get the quality rug you want and need.
