Throws

Muse collection by Mae Engelgeer

I’m completely smitten with Mae Engelgeer’s Muse Collection, especially the white and black bow pillow (not shown) and throw (bottom left). If they didn’t cost slightly more than I am willing to pay, they’d both be shipping to my house right this very second.

The collection consist out of throws and cushions in different sizes. This series is a celebratory ode to her muse, the decorative symbol the bow.The fabrics are all double sides and made out of mohair, thick acrylic and lurex yarns. The fabrics she created are manufactured in the Textile Museum in Tilburg.The colours al mingles into a happy and colourful but still very stylish mix, and the plaids look like precious jewels in object of arts.

Virtue Blanket

As some of you might be aware, wedding season is fast approaching. If you’re looking for a gift for upcoming nuptials, you should (of course) get them something off their registry. However, if the couple has thumbed their noses at the tradition of registering (or if you’re a stickler for putting thought and effort into every gift), then maybe something like this would be a perfect thing to wish them well.

“The Virtue blanket (155 cm x 210 cm) is finely knitted using high quality, undyed Icelandic wool. It warms us, at the same time reminding us to be virtuous. The pattern is derived from the decorations on the virtue cloths reworked in a contemporary style, but with the historical background of the virtue cloths in mind. It is a symmetrical, abstract form that each individual can interpret in his or her own way.”

Donna Wilson Cushion & Blankets

We’ve posted the Blah Blah Blanket($104.00) by Donna Wilson before, and it seems only right to highlight a few other items of her collection as well. Keep in mind that the blankets are more of a smaller kid/baby size (or wall hanging?).

Pantheon Throw by Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel

This throw isn’t a new thing, but I do keep admiring the design whenever I come across it. If you look closely, you can see images of tanks and grenades amidst the animals.

“The ordinary throw blanket may be a bit taboo in the design industry, seeing as its main function is to cover an old and unseemly couch… but when Marcel Wanders, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel get ahold of it, it’s another story altogether! Decorated with bold, graphic patterns, the July and Pantheon Throws are elegant and unexpected heirlooms, capable of transforming any room with their warm and inviting atmosphere. If you don’t have an old couch that needs to be saved, they look equally great draped over the bed, hung on a wall, or used as a tablecloth for those extra special occasions.”

“Be the Change” Throw

I’ve often thought about making a blanket out of t-shirts–but I haven’t yet because I didn’t know it could turn out this cool.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world,” and this lovingly handmade throw brings Mahatma Gandhi’s words home in a warm and inspiring way. From the carefully selected materials, to the boldly embroidered lettering, it’s a beautifully personal embodiment of a universally important idea.”

Buddy Throw

I want to snuggle up with one of my own this coming winter!!! It’s starting to get colder here in the midwest, and I particularly love this color combination, very modern and sophisticated.

“Designed by La Tete Au Cube and the guys surrounding Jérome Fischbach, this is the ultimate solitude counter measure. It’s so charming and so French, yet it doesn’t take itself too seriously. With 85% wool, it’s nice and cuddly. Polyamide (15%) ensures incredible softness.”

53″ (135 cm) x 73” (185 cm)

Fold Throw

This throw blanket would add that certain something to your bedroom. If you need that kind of thing. Also, it’s available in tons of different colors and stitchings and custom made to your specifications.

“Do you want a different blanket? Something unlike anything you’ve seen before?

We have a suggestion: FOLD blankets. They’re different. Bold. Colorful. Rare — you won’t find these at Target and never at Pottery Barn.

FOLD’s fluid geometric designs could only be produced by carefully hand-piecing the fabrics. Linda uses 100% wool flannel, and the blankets are great for year-round use.”
