Midday Muse: Shagadelic

It's hard to think that cringe-inducing, deep-pile shag, a preferred venue for making whoopee in the '70s, could make a comeback in our homes, but it has. Once a blemish on the time line of American interiors, shag is back in the game and kicking butt.
Everyone from Pottery Barn to Design Within Reach is selling the fluffy stuff, and I'm loving it. Here, interior designer Galo Verdesoto has used it to add warmth to a cold Manhattan apartment. It looks cozy, but paired with tailored furniture, it's also not too casual. With a dog in the house, going shagadelic isn't the smartest choice for me: it would be a vacuuming nightmare. But, I absolutely urge you to try it!

I got 2 huge white shag rugs for my living room and kitchen and they shed SOOO much! I have dark wood floors and they look very nice but there are ALWAYS fuzz balls everywhere.

I think shag carpetting should be illegal. ;)

I have a tan shag pile rug in my living room and I like it! It pairs nicely with the smooth oak hardwood floors! Plus it feels great on barefeet! The biggest drawback is things get lost in the pile all the time.
