Decorating a room with a shaggy rug is the best and the easiest way to create a comfortable atmosphere in your home. Its texture is beautifully soft and therefore also perfectly suitable for kids rugs. Due to its deep pile and its comparably low yarn density, this furnishing classic, which is also referred to as deep-pile carpet or high pile rug, gets a charming shaggy look that has given it a cult status since the 70s. Ever since, the range of styles and materials has been expanding constantly and is now able to appeal to every taste. Although round rugs or colourfully patterned shaggy rugs are very fashionable, plain shaggy rugs are even more popular because the look and feel of a shaggy rug is already quite extravagant, motivating people to choose models with more subtle colouring. Additional delicacy is created through shiny effects brought about by glossy fibres or fibres of different length and width, creating a unique structure. Therefore, it is always worthwhile to consider all details of a shaggy rug, like its fibre structure, material and the pile structure. After all, these factors significantly influence the appearance of the shaggy rug and its effect in a room.
Cosy shag pile rugs
Modern rugs in general and shaggy rugs in particular add a touch of comfort to many rooms. As the term "shaggy" already implies, a deep pile carpet has a hairy structure which can create many different atmospheres in a room. The long pile of cosy shag pile rugs does not only have a great appearance, but also impresses with its excellent functionality: it provides great comfort and is therefore perfectly suitable as a playing surface for children who enjoy romping around on the floor. In addition, shaggy rugs nicely keep your feet warm in winter. As they bring comfort, they are also popular as living room rugs, but should be placed in such a way that no chairs or armchairs are placed on them. All the advantages they bring with them also apply to shag pile bath mats, which are additionally non-slip and washable, or runner rugs, which can be placed in the hallway or used as bedroom rugs, creating a homely atmosphere.
A flokati is strictly speaking a special Greek furnishing which has been manufactured in the same way for centuries. Traditionally flokatis are made from raw (sheep) wool and are characterised by a soft surface and a relatively firm texture. Thanks to their extremely shaggy and exceptionally cosy appearance and texture, they received a tremendous popularity boost in the 70s.
