The Shag rug, designed by Ron Arad, for The Rug Company is definitely quirky, silly and fun. This artistic creation may also play homage to the shag rugs that were so popular in the 1970's. I can certainly remember the royal and navy blue shag rug that was spread throughout my childhood bedroom.

According to The Rug Company's website, "This rug is entirely handmade, from the spinning of the wool to the weaving on the loom. It is unique, and has been crafted by weavers in the Kathmandu area, whose skills have been passed down through many generations. We use only the highest quality wool for our rugs, that of the Tibetan sheep, for its durability, rich texture and subtle color variation. To this we have added the vision of a world class designer, and the result is a hand knotted contemporary rug of extraordinary beauty, which will itself become an heirloom to be treasured for years to come."

It is definitely worth checking out The Rug Company and their collection of rugs. You may be pleasantly surprised!
