Shaggy white rugs work with pretty much any decor: They're neutral, so they match every color palette, and their soft lines play well with all styles of furniture. Plus, having a big swath of white on the floor makes a room feel more light-filled.
The obvious problem with shaggy white rugs, of course, is the white part. And the shaggy part too. A white rug is just begging for wine spots, crayons streaks, or paw prints, and shaggy rugs have a tendency to shed, shed, shed until you give up and roll them to the curb.
But not this shaggy white rug:
This one, from Costco—sorry, design snobs—has met its fair share of up-ended wineglasses and dirty paws, as well as two small children and an ornery cat. But it's no worse for the wear after almost two years.
Because it's made of polypropylene, basically a derivative of plastic, anything that might soak in (that aforementioned wine) doesn't leave a stain if you wipe it up quickly enough—but it's still super-soft to the touch. And because it's woven (not glued) the long fibers don't pull out or shed. You probably don't want to roll around on it in black yoga pants if yours attract lint, but other than that, it doesn't leave awkward strands all over your clothes. It doesn't jam a regular vacuum—namely, my workhorse first-generation Dyson—but I don't know that it put it up against my beloved Roomba. (It might be fine, but neither the rug nor the robot vacuum is worth the risk.)
It definitely looks a little more yellow in these pics, but in real life, it's closer to the color on the site.
If you're not a Costco member, you can still buy the rug on costco.com, you'll just be charged a $19.50 surcharge—and shipping and handling are free.
