Soft, inviting and elegant, throws make the perfect sofa or bed companion for cool evenings or just to add an extra layer of comfort. Throws also provide an opportunity to add contrasting colour and textures to living rooms and bedrooms.
A throw is generally used for both comfort and aesthetic reasons, so it has to both look and feel great. Throws are generally
spread over sofas or beds, where they can be used to add some extra warmth when snuggling up on the sofa on cooler evenings.
That’s why softer materials such as wool and cotton are ideal choices for throws. In terms of colour, you can either choose
a neutral tone that will work with most colour sofas and bedding, or use the throw as your chance to add some bolder tones.
They come in various sizes too, so you can choose a throw that’s suitable for your needs.
Style choices for throws
Knitted cotton or wool make ideal materials for throws, providing both warmth and comfort. Throws can be either plain
block colours or patterned, but you need to think carefully about whether a bold pattern will work in your space. Block colours
tend to be more versatile and can be used in different areas of the home. Our range of throws work well with a big selection of our new
sofas or to add some new life to your older sofa (or you might choose to revitalise your couch with one of our
sofa covers). You can increase the impact of your throw by matching it with one of our
living room rugs, which will tie your seating area together.
As well as throws for your bed or sofa, you can combine it with a choice of
cushions from the Castlery selection. Choose matching tones or
complementary colours and you can give your couch a new lease of life. Other soft furnishings in our range, such as poufs and
bean bags, can also add to your seating area without the expense of a new suite.
What is a throw blanket?
A throw is an extra layer of comfort, warmth and texture that you can add to your sofa or living room, in the form of a large blanket. They are usually made from knitted cotton or wool, which are soft to the touch and great for snuggling.
How do I choose a throw blanket for my bed?
Choose a throw that is big enough to add some extra cover and catch the eye but not so big that it looks oversize or drags on the floor.
Choose a soft touch and comfortable material – after all this is your bed - and a colour that works with all your existing bedding.
