Getting the right shag carpet is the key to making it work with your space and existing decor. Colour, pattern and size are the main things to consider when looking for the right match. A patterned shag rug can work well considering the furniture pattern is minimal and colours compliment each other. Mixing patterns can be very tricky, but if done well, can be very effective in the overall presentation. Shag #24070 photographed at the Telio showroom.
