As we slowly warm up to the fall season, one of our favorite autumn essentials is the throw blanket. Even if your bedding isn’t in need of yet another accessory, this cozy piece has several beneficial functions that might be able to sway even the most stubborn anti-throw blanket advocate (if they are out there).
- Use it as a headboard accessory: stain or unsightly wear on a fabric or wooden headboard? Throw the blanket over the headboard for added flair (and to cover anything you don’t want to be seen).
- Protect seat cushions: throw blankets can be a wonderful way to protect seat cushions from pets, guests, and of course- children.
- Drape it over the arm of a couch: throw blankets are always great to have around the sofa for autumn nights indoors. Drape it over the arm of the sofa for an elegant look.
- Cascade: cascade the throw blanket luxuriously over the back of a sofa or chair – for a very plush look.
