Throws

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.

Wool Throws by Arthur Arbesser

Staying warm this 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 has a new wool throw collection by fashion designer Arthur Arbesser, and dare we say that each pattern and colorway is both modern and fun, and absolutely perfect for almost any interior. Might this be a good gift idea for someone with perpetually cold feet and hands? Hmm…

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.

Artist Throws by Justin Lowe & Jonah Freeman

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).

Diagonals Girard Wool Blanket by Vitra

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.

Louise Gray Quilts

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.

1100 Carded Wool Blanket by Roberta Licini

It’s still cold outside, so here’s a very fashionable 100% carded wool blanket to keep you warm. Fair warning, though, it’s not cheap, partly because it looks like it should be hanging on the wall as an abstract art piece instead of on your bed as a blanket. You could probably even get away with wearing it out in public as a sort of sweater coat/wrap (if you’re brave), especially as it’s from fashion knitwear designer Roberta Licini.

Houses Throw by Alyson Fox

Need another throw to keep your toes warm? This one is a good choice, as it’s made of 100% baby Alpaca Jacquard (by a socially sustainable collective in Peru, no less) and has a hand embroidered pattern by Alyson Fox. Yes, you’ve probably heard of Alyson Fox and, yes, you probably love her just as much as everyone else. Maybe you’ve seen her rug designs or maybe you’ve run across images of her house via Freunde von Freunden, either way, there’s no arguing she’s got talent.

Squares Throw

Here’s another very suitable option for keeping yourself warm. This 100% Baby Alpaca Jacquard Squares Throw is a collaboration between designer Alyson Fox and Hawkins New York and has hand embroidered detailing as well as a reverse colored back. A grey, blue, and black color scheme won’t clash with your living or sleeping areas, so keep it handy to have an extra layer of warmth while reading a book or watching a movie.

Sensation Blanket by Zuzunaga

Think of this as a color field art piece that will keep you (or your giftee) warm. The handwoven mix of 100% ecological French merino wool shows color combination at a basic level: off-white, Yellow, Red, Green and Gray are woven to create a one larger rectangle of an earthy sort of yellow ochre. This one, the Sensation blanket, is my favorite, but there are others as well: Intuition, Feeling, and Thinking. Or, for a more pixelated mix, check out the Labyrinth. All by Zuzunaga.
