More about comfort and funk, and less about elegance, gold shaggy rugs, silver shaggy rugs and bronze shaggy rugs have definitely made a comeback from the retro era dating back to the sixties. They are the perfect expression of one’s individuality with the quirky yet eye-catching designs and at the same time they are one of the most comfortable rugs available in the market, sometimes even beating the classy and much admired wool rugs. Shaggy rugs are a fairly recent development bringing back the wacky loud colours and eccentric retro designs produced in the sixties.
In fact, Rya rugs were the original shaggy rugs that were developed in Scandinavia. They were introduced by Viking traders almost a thousand years ago. The Rya rugs that were first produced were simple in design and the process of weaving was based on the traditional rug technique. Over time, the Scandinavians produced intricate and expensive Rya rugs in advanced designs. The sixties however, saw the innovation of a fashion statement for the floor, the modern shaggy pile rug. Now with new weaving methods and large shipments of rugs from India, China and the Middle Eastern countries, the consumer can purchase a rug without digging too deep into his/her pockets.
Moving on, one of the biggest advantages of gold shaggy rugs is the numerous options available. You can get them in almost any color imaginable having the most unique pattern with the most plush pile heights allowing your feet to sink into soft shaggy heaven. Most popular today, are shag rugs made of leather. These rugs are a little sober as compared to other more outlandish varieties and look beautiful in the living room. If one seeks to brighten up a room and at the same time ensure optimum comfort, then synthetic shag rugs are the way to go. Blue rugs, green rugs, red rugs, you get them all.
The most important aspect that has to be looked into while purchasing a shaggy rug is the feel of the rug with respect to the thickness or as mentioned earlier the plush height as well as the material. One can opt for a low cut shaggy with thick chunky strands, or a thick comfortable wool shaggy, while the more adventurous can take a look at some shimmering light reflecting rugs. Children’s rugs are also available in this make which is ideal to add some fun and comfort into a play room.
As far as the price is concerned, shaggy rugs are available under a wide price range. While most of the leather and silk options tend to be expensive, the synthetic alternative is cheaper. Cheap rugs are also available online where one has access to rugs on sale. Furthermore, most online stores or catalogs also offer free home delivery, which is an added benefit.
Thus, the increasing use of carpets across the world has led to the comeback of what was believed to be a once extinct fashion statement- the retro look. People are now willing to bring the funk and vigor of the sixties back into their homes via the shaggy rug.
