After teasing us for a while, the spring is finally here and the summer is on its way. I am knocking on wood, by the way. We are in Chicago, after all, so there really is no saying when our summer is going to show up. With the expectation of the warmer days, this week's round up of cozy throws may seem out of season. To that, I say - not so fast! Just think of all those cool summer evenings on your patio, by the lake, or even in your living room with the windows wide open. You will need a cozy blanket or a throw, and we found a few that really spoke to us.
ICE BLUE ALPACA THROW
Think of a beach house, wrap-around wooden deck with a view of the ocean, and a nice summer drink in your hand. All you need to add is Alpaca throw, and your vacation evening is perfect.
CHUNKY KNIT OVERSIZED THROW
What's a summer without those lazy afternoon naps when you are on vacation? This chunky oversized throw is perfect for such naps.
BLUE DIAMOND CHENILLE THROW
Muted blue tones in the diamond pattern will add some texture to the understated and minimalist interiors, while "chenille" in the description will tell you about the softness of this throw.
FAUX FUR LUXE PLEATED THROW
When we talk about cozy throws, it would be a crime not to look at some faux fur pieces. There is something about these textures that speak luxury and comfort.
LAVISH HOME FAUX MINK FUR THROW
Another one of the faux fur throws that was impossible to scroll by. It looks so inviting, don't you just want to wrap yourself with it?
I probably wouldn't sit by an open fire with either one of the fur throws. but lounging on a porch swing, having your morning cup of coffee by the window, or cuddling up on the sofa for your favorite show - all are excellent opportunities to use either one of these faux fur throws and relax in style.
MARLED BASKETWEAVE THROW
This is the kind of throw you take to the fire on the beach or to an outdoor concert. Of course, if it never sees outside and spends its life on your reading chair in the Master Bedroom, that's pretty nice, too.
BYOURBED AUSTRALIAN WOOL OVERSIZED BLANKET
To be fair, this is not really a throw... But how could you not fall in love with it, in all of its chunky glory. I don't care where you decide to use it, this bad boy is a must-have, especially for a contemporary loft-style interiors, where embellishments are reduced to a minimum. Just look at that texture!
BLUE HERRINGBONE THROW
Another simply understated throw from Pier 1 Interiors that is perfect for minimal interiors, as well as lovers of eclectic globe-trotting style. Something about it says "I bought it on my travels while passing through a tiny village in the mountains"
If these beauties don't speak "ultimate summer throw" to you, then I don't know what does. It is lightweight and versatile, appropriate for outdoor events, summer homes, and your favorite corner on the sofa.
