Shag Area Rugs - The ultimate in luxury home furnishings

Luxury sheep skin or leather rug

Shag Area Rugs

Shag area rugs and shag-pile carpets are the ultimate in luxury home furnishings. Imagine yourself curled up in front of the open fire on a cold winter’s night, relaxing on a beautifully soft and fluffy rug. Well, this dream could easily become reality, and you might be surprised to learn that it doesn’t necessarily have to be an expensive purchase. A good quality shag area rug can cost as little as $30, but the heavier the pile and the larger the rug, the more you pay.

As a guide, a rug that has a pile of over one and a half inches should give you a wonderfully soft feeling under foot. However that does not mean that a pile of an inch or less is a bad thing, so should not be discounted, especially if you are on a tight budget or plan to position furniture on top of the rug.

As far as rugs, carpets and other textile items are concerned; when we talk about a shag pile we mean that the pile, or the nap, is longer than in standard rugs. This thickness gives a heavier, more luxurious product which is amazingly comfortable to walk or lie on.

Shag-pile rugs come in all different styles – from super trendy and brightly-colored textured rugs to traditional sheep skin varieties. The majority of shag area rugs are made from nylon, cool or wool (or a combination of the three), however one style that has become increasingly popular with young executives and fans of contemporary furniture is the leather shag rug.
