10 reasons to love the shagpile trend

It’s been around for decades, but this shaggy retro carpet is making its way into all sorts of homeware

It’s covered the floors of many a Kiwi home since it was introduced here in the 1960s, but then it fell out of favour – until now! The fluffy comfort of shag is back and not just as a carpet – as the design darlings of this year’s The Block NZ, Niki and Tiff, demonstrated with their peach shaggy rug. We love this retro revival in all its forms – long may its reign continue, we say.
