Dive into the Luxurious World of Shag Rugs: Transform Your Home with Cosy Elegance

Author: Jake  

Welcome to the world of shag rugs, where comfort meets style, and luxury intertwines with practicality. Shag rugs have been adorning homes for decades, adding warmth, texture, and a touch of opulence to any space. 

Shag rugs have an interesting history that dates to ancient times. Some evidence suggests that the earliest shag rugs originated in Central Asia, where nomadic tribes used them for both functional and aesthetic purposes. These rugs were traditionally handcrafted using wool and would provide insulation for those living in colder climates when sitting or sleeping. Over the years, shag rugs evolved and gained popularity across different cultures, ultimately becoming a symbol of sophistication and comfort in modern interior design.

Most people opt to use shag rugs in their living rooms; creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere by placing a plush shag rug in front of the sofa or under their coffee table (Our Jana designed shag rugs are perfect for such a space, and can be seen below). Its soft, luxurious texture will add depth and character to the space, while also offering a comfortable area for relaxation. The more designer inclined amongst us can experiment with layering different rugs to create a unique visual appeal. Combine a shag rug with a flat-woven or patterned rug to add depth and dimension to a room. This technique also adds a dynamic touch to the floor space of a room and allows for some variation in textures and colours.

Another room people often place shag rugs is the bedroom. (An example of which can be seen below with a luxurious Ptolmy designed rug)  After all, there is no better a feeling than stepping onto the lush warm fibres of a shag rug on a cold winter morning. Shag rugs additionally also act as a sound dampener, hampering the travel of noise and letting you listen to a movie or TV show just a little louder.

Embrace the allure of shag rugs and experience the transformative power they bring to your home. With their rich history, versatile placement options, and endless use cases, shag rugs offer a seamless blend of comfort, style, and luxury; and, as always, us at the Scattermats team thank you for reading!
