If you are thinking of adding something special to the overall look and vibe of your home, you could do far worse than think of a real 1970’s icon – The Shaggy Rug. Maybe some of the decade contained a little too much Mozzarella for the more catholic tastes, but a nice measure of manliness in the shape of a floor hugging deep pile will suit more individuals than you think. We all have a little bit of Austin Powers’ chic in our personalities and by choosing a Shagtastic Rug; you will be able to share this inner desire with the outside world!
The modern Shaggy Rug varies fairly widely and you can easily choose an affordable model to suit most tastes. Although the archetypal example may involve an open fire, sideburns and some Brut 45, they have moved with the times. These bad boys come in a variety of lengths and you’ll also be able to pick from several material options. The colour choice is usually a personal issue, but you may be advised to chop and change according to your living space and décor style.
Choosing the Perfect Shaggy Rug
If you fancy a touch of the Starsky and Hutches in your bedroom, you may be better served by choosing a high pile version. These are usually soft enough to roll on, if that’s your thing, and add some serious presence to any serious sleeping quarters. A hallway covering would be better chosen in a colour that hides any dirt or animal hair. A synthetic Shaggy Rug will probably deal with any stain issues better than a natural material like wool. Old sea dogs will almost be able to smell the ocean when warming their feet on a deep blue shag pile. If your room of choice has a pretty powerful theme, it may be best to choose a different type of rug, Shaggy Rugs tend to overpower the lesser themed rooms and could well create a visual headache if chosen without too much thought.
To Shag or Not To Shag?
Indeed, that is the question that only you good people can answer. If you decide to take a closer look at these time machine classics, why not let your fingers do the walking over to Rug Zone? You’ll soon be flying back to the 1970’s in some style and will probably need a larger than average Tardis for the return trip.
