Cold Picnic Knit Blanket

Who else wants a warm, knit blanket with abstract art patterns? It’ll keep our toes warm and our eyes happy, as the colors and composition agree with our aesthetic sensibilities. And, as you’d expect, it being Cold Picnic, there’s the Tonal Boob Knit Blanket to coordinate with their Boob Bath Mat. Cold Picnic’s quilts are impressive as well, but deserve to be featured separately (perhaps next week).

Slowdown Studio Throws

Blech, some days are tough, huh? Maybe you just need to curl up under a Slowdown Studio throw and succumb to the latest series on netflix/hulu/whatever. You’re sure to cheer up with the 100% cotton throws, especially since their crazy, vivid shapes and patterns are visual statements of general well-being and positivity. It’s pretty difficult to pick a favorite; maybe the Benjamin? or the Davis? Which one do you like best?

Moroccan Beach Towel by John Elliott

Is it too late to feature a beach towel? The answer is yes, but who cares, especially as you could throw it over your shoulders as an extra layer, as the designer chose to style it in his spring collection. Or, you could just admire the pattern, and save it for your next escape to the pool/beach/island.

Round Moon Phases Beach Towel

Did you see the eclipse yesterday? That event is the only reason why a round, fringed beach towel is featured today. You’ll most likely never see the likes of it again*; let’s hope that’s not the case of other notable astronomical events.

HAY Quilts

More minimal/modern quits, and this time they’re from Tanja Vibe and Petra Olsson, the Danish-Swedish team known as All The Way To Paris. The quilts are cotton with polyester filling, and each one has graphic stripe patterns in softer primary colors. And, good news, they’re sized to fit a queen bed, so they can be your main coverlet/blanket for your bedroom, and not just a small throw size that you keep wishing was just a tiny bit bigger.

CoopDPS Cotton Blankets

Blankets in July? WTF, right? Yeah, well, it’s cold somewhere right now, and someone is going to want a soft, cozy throw to warm their toes. Plus, summer won’t last forever, and these throws by ZigZagZurich (designed by Nathalie Du Pasquier & George Sowden, founder members of Memphis movement) are relatively inexpensive and very much pattern-fantastic.

Archway and Steps Beach Towel 

Not everyone wants to spend $175 on a beach towel, but if you’re exceptionally picky, you just might like the simple motifs on these 100% Irish linen towels. Did you know linen is very absorbent and durable? And that it’s lint-free and gets softer the more you use it? Do you feel a little bit better about the price point now?

Tonal Boob Pillow

It’s a Tonal Boob Pillow, and why wouldn’t you want one? You’re not the type to shy away from an cartoonish image of a body part, and, in fact, you can celebrate it without any of the awkwardness that may come from someone more serious.

Caroline Z. Hurley Throws

Nice! This linen throw is by Caroline Z. Hurley, and can be used as a sofa throw, beach towel, table cloth, or wrap dress. Talk about versatile, eh?

Duck Duck Pillows

Just so you know, the Duck Duck Pillows have a bunch of fun color combinations, and they’re all kind of perfect for the sofa, or a reading chair, or as an accent pillow (or two) on the bed (don’t go overboard*). My favorite? Color Mix 5 or Color Mix 3, I can’t quite decide.
