Nowadays you can pretty much find a shag rug in any color including black brown white red green pink and all varying shades in between making it much easier to find a hue that blends in nicely with your other room decor.<br />And last in the list of quality shag rugs is one thats also known as the "Shaggy" rug due to its appearance.
