I love a good shag.

;-)

After all, I am a child of the 70s.

Those first three rooms are making me feel faint! I'm loving the color combination of that slate-grey blue and yellow-green. Holy cow, those lamps are amazing.

Sorry, I digress, nice rugs!

I love the painting in the first picture, and the echo of the sea blueness in the 3rd pic below. Also love how the mid-century looking bench over the orange shag looks so substantial and block edged against the floor seating.

I have decided to buy nothing but shag rugs from here on out. Good ones hide everything (even light colored rugs) but are still easy to vacuum.

Ok, maybe not for the dining room...

Egad, shades of the 1960's! Flashback.

As a child of the 70's, they make me think of spiders hiding in the fluff as was a common occurrence in my child hood.
How sad.

i have one- how can you vacuum them? the shag is so long! (did i just say that?)

Hi ya Maggie and welcome! To clean a shag or long pile rug, use your vacuum's upholstery attachment or just the hose with no tools attached.

I love them all, especially two and three, but with a dog (and the odd errant bone being brought in) and a kid whom likes boiled eggs in front of the telly, 'tis nothing but a distant dream to the future.... liberation from children, pets and welcome back the shag.
