Throws

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?

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.

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? 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.

Throws from Slowdown Studio

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 Studio 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.

Mega and Mini Dot Quilt

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.

Images of aliens and UFOs will keep you oh-so-warm and comfy when you cover up with this recycled cotton and acrylic throw. A homemade foil hat is entirely optional. Choose the black/white or the lighter white/gold.

Wooly Wood Throw

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.

Mika Barr Textiles

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.

Zuzunaga’s Zoom In + Zoom Out Blankets

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.

BFGF Woven Blankets

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.
