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.

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? Each throw individually block printed by hand with non-toxic acrylic ink. With plenty of designs available directly from Hurley’s shop, you’re sure to find one that suits your style. There’s also a fair bit of pillows, table textiles, and rugs to peruse as well.

Let’s talk throws. They’re the sorts of things that keep your legs and feet warm indoors when it’s way too cold outside. Make sure you have at least one in your sofa’s general vicinity, if not two or three in your household to have near favorite chairs and cozy beds. Slowdown Studios has a generous helping of delightful patterns from different designers that will keep your eyes happy and your toes toasty- you may have a hard time deciding which one is your favorite.

Staying warm this fall and winter is as simple as having a good wool throw in the immediate vicinity of your sofa, bed, or desk (if your workplace is casual). Hem’s wool throw collection by fashion designer Arthur Arbesser is still available, plus some designs from Sylvain Willenz thrown in to tempt you further. Dare we say that each pattern and colorway is both modern and fun, and absolutely perfect for any interior?

Aside from not having more US distributers, Hay can do no wrong in my book. These reversible Mega Dot Quilts hit the target for lighter summer bedding. I recently purchased another one for my home, as it’s the perfect weight for summer nights, and was delighted to find the price has decreased quite a bit from a couple of years ago. That certainly doesn’t happen often. If you’d rather have a smaller size as a throw for the cooler evenings or for a smaller children’s bed, there’s the Baby Dot Quilt for $99.00.

New designs from Forestry are here just in time to keep your toes warm this winter. Made from 100% New Zealand wool, each design is spare and elegant with subdued colors that are friendly to any interior- that’ll make those modern design aficionados on your list happy as can be. Might as well get one for yourself too, while you’re at it.

How about a Wooly Wood Throw to keep you warm this winter? Soft and reversible, this 100% lambswool throw is woven in Scotland and designed by Donna Wilson. Drape it nicely over a sofa or chair back or keep it at the end of the bed, and it’ll be ready to warm up your appendages at a moment’s notice.

Origami textiles? Yes, indeed. We might have featured Mika Barr’s work previously, but right now our search isn’t working (sorry, we’re tweaking the site), so forgive the repeat if we have shown off her throws and pillows before. The throws are especially eye-catching, as the printed fabric shows off its faceted nature best when casually draped across a sofa or chair. Can you believe they’re machine washable? Pretty impressive.

More pixelated Bitmap imagery from Spanish designer Cristian Zuzunaga, and this time he’s taking cues from British painter Bridget Riley. It’s a great pairing, don’t you think? You might have seen some of Zuzunaga’s other pieces before, and I’d say this collection seems a little more quiet, though just as energetic- like a shy kid that just ate a LOT of sugar.

If you’re shivering alone at night, wondering where all the other weird and wonderful people are, you need a BFGF blanket to keep you company. With simple sketches of banal objects, the blankets give a casual cartoon perspective that is both familiar and funny. The Worldwide Aura Blanket (above) is my favorite, but the others will be just as warm and will perhaps suit you and your décor just as well. BFGF also have mouse pads, bags, and apparel, if you’re in a shopping mood.

Does your interior need a little more warmth and a little more art? Combine the two needs in one linen throw, digitally printed with an image by Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman. They’re big enough to wrap yourself in as an extra layer of warmth and maybe even small enough to take with you on your travels (airplanes get coooold, as we know).

A trippy, two-toned pattern blanket is just what you need, right? Alexander Girard is known for his brightly patterned pieces, and now you’re able to wrap yourself up tight in this black and white (and slightly frantic?) design to ward off the chill. Made of Merino lamb’s wool, it’s lightweight, fine, and soft, and will complement any color scheme.

Sure, there are some modern/minimal quilts out there- Meg Callahan, Haptic Lab, Mary Keasler and Hopewell Workshop, just to name a few- and now we can add yet another excellent option to the list. The Louise Gray company offers a handful of color blocked quilts that would fit easily into any modern interior. Entirely hand crafted in the US, the quilts could work as a throw or as a wall hanging, and maybe, if we keep our collective fingers crossed, they’ll soon offer larger bed-size options.
