Going back to ‘retro’ styles every few decades the ‘Shag’ carpet, or rather, Frieze, as it is known nowadays and is here to stay, at least for now. A large part of a frieze’s durability is due to its construction. Frieze is characterized by long fibers that have a high twist to them. In terms of performance, it is definitely durable enough to withstand the high-traffic areas. It’s compatible with more casual décor, and is soft and cozy enough to walk on, or sink your toes into first thing in the morning. Recommendations for this type of fiber would be the family room, bedrooms, hallway, Residential Family Room or Home Office or even the Bedroom.
