Shag rugs add all the texture.
With texture as plush and cozy as this, we only have one question: Why wouldn’t you want to roll out a shag rug in your home? Featuring carved details and varying pile heights, our Mandy Textured Geometric rug (seen above) packs in even more texture than the usual shag styles. If something more streamlined is more your speed, we have tons of styles with a uniform pile height, too. Check them all out here to find the ideal look for your space!
Shag rugs elevate a neutral palette.
Looking for a neutral-hued rug, but worried it’ll seem too… boring? Try out a shag style to add some textural interest—we promise it’ll feel far from boring in your space, as evidenced by our Solid Shag with Tassels rug in beige that’s rolled out in the chic living room above.
Shag rugs make a great layering piece.
If you hang out around here, you’ve probably heard us wax poetic on our love of layering rugs. (What can we say? Sometimes, more is more when it comes to rugs!) This tactic is one that can certainly be done with shag rugs, whether you want to roll one out as the bottom layer as seen above, or place it as the cherry on top. Either way, make sure you’re securing the rugs to one another with carpet tape if you’re worried about slippage—especially when using smaller-sized rugs.
Shag rugs are perfect for bedrooms.
One of our go-to shag rug ideas is to roll them out in bedrooms. We’d argue that no style is better suited for your suite—after all, how amazing does it sound to sink your bare feet into the soft, high pile of a shag rug every morning? We’d say that’s one way to make getting out of bed a little easier!
Shag rugs are a soft, cozy pick for kid’s rooms.
Just as shag rugs make a fitting choice for the bedroom, they’re pretty much a perfect pick for kid’s space as well. Whether rolled out in a nursery, kid’s bedroom, or play area, their soft shaggy pile makes them a smart, practical option where crawling and playtime happen on the floor.
Shag rugs are a go-to for Moroccan-inspired style.
You can’t have a list of shag rug ideas without mentioning the Moroccan look! Our graphic Moroccan shags are inspired by traditional rugs woven by Berber tribes in the High Atlas mountains of Morocco, and feature the classic graphic diamond and trellis patterns the styles are so beloved for. Roll one out in any room to bring a beautiful, global-inspired look to your own space!
Shag rugs feel like artwork for the floor.
The textured, high-pile nature of shag rugs alone makes them stand out to create a special, elevated statement in your space. Combine that with the fact that they come in bold hues and patterns, and you’ve got what is essentially a work of art rolled out on the floor!
