Known for its "shaggy" texture and appearance, the most distinct characteristic of shag rugs is its deep and thick pile - which is achieved through the use of long strands of yarn and cut loops that are stitched onto a backing material. It is set apart from the rest of carpet and rug types because unlike flat weaves, shag rugs have a very soft and fluffy texture which is ultra comfortable to walk or even sit on. Some even say that shag rugs are kind of comparable to the feel of luscious animal fur.
Rugs provide one of the best ways to create maximum impact in an interior, while using only minimum effort. Whether to add color, brighten up, accentuate or breathe new life into a space, rugs will help you do amazing home makeovers without having to undergo the nitty gritty work of renovating, repainting or refinishing your home.
Luckily, the market offers a lot of rugs which one can choose from to suit any interior style. Rugs come in different colors, shapes, designs and style --ranging from exotic traditional pieces to exquisite contemporary designs which resemble modern artworks. However, another type of rug which continues to pick up steam in the interior design scene are transitional rugs.
