shag-floor-rugFun and Functional – Area Floor Rugs

This type of rug is one of my favorites, they’re all throw backs that are coming back in style. We’re talking about shag rugs, flokati and sheepskin rugs. These plush and thick rugs bring depth to a room by providing a three-dimensional aspect. The plushness also makes these rugs heavenly to walk on- making them ideal to place in a common seating area. Just imagine running your toes through the soft, thick fabric of a sheepskin rug while you relax on the couch.

If you are like me; your house is painted in neutral colors, your home furnishings are timeless, and your wall accents are very classic pieces. A home that has a neutral theme, like mine, deserves an eccentric accent piece. A patterned rug.

5_dsc5368-leather-chair-accessoriesPurchasing a patterned rug can be daunting, there are so many options.

There is a rug in nearly every pattern you can think of and in various different colors. Placing a patterned rug in any room is a great way to bring an accent piece to your home without taking away from your other carefully chosen home decor pieces.

I would suggest that busy patterned rugs be placed in a larger room, so that the patterned rug does not become an eye-sore of sorts.

On the opposite spectrum of patterned rugs we have the natural material rug. These includes but is not limited to, jute, sisal and bamboo rugs. Natural material rugs provide the same functionality as all other area floor rugs, while keeping a classic and casual feel.

A perk to decorating with a natural material rug is that they are extremely durable, they keep out more dirt, and they are timeless. The natural material rug is a safe purchase, due to their neutral design they have not gone out of style since they became stylish.
