When the weather turns, it's only natural to give some thought to keeping warm. When you can do this in style, with cosy and comfortable blankets and throws it's even better. The most interesting design houses often try out new ideas on soft furnishings such as blankets. The casual use of them across the home plus the chance to provide eye-grabbing colours and patterns in the design, means they are able to bring a homely and warm feel to every room.
The following designs at Homecolours, although varying widely in inspiration and design methodology, all aim to bring the crucial elements of a high quality blanket to the home; warmth, comfort and style.
The above Räsymatto Blanket from Marimekko certainly does that in abundance. The blanket is produced in a thickly knit blend of wool perfect for keeping the warmth in and the cold out. Ideal for curling up on the sofa with the blanket wrapped around, the premium quality blanket provides premium comfort. The striking monochrome pattern is an artistic and stylish design guaranteed to impress. The blanket is made up of two print designs, with the blanket providing a reversible pattern.
The Chief Joseph Blanket by Pendleton uses a design dating back to the 1920's to highlight its inspiration. With a pattern bringing out the strong tradition of the Native American tribe the Nez Perce, the blanket is a perfect way to showcase history, art and design all combining in captivating style. The blanket can be reversed to show two different designs. Produced in high quality wool, the blanket provides ample warmth and protection against the chilliest of nights.
The large Cotton Throw by D + T Design takes a versatile approach to the design principles involved in good blanket production. With many different shades of colour available, it's possible to find the right one needed for any area in the home. The plain background of the throw means coordinating with existing furniture and furnishings is always possible. Comfort and top level quality is offered with 100% cotton providing a reliable and strong throw to use all around the home.
Farbenfreunde bring an extra layer of comfort with the Adult Throw. Through a luxury use of a soft and velvet texture, the blanket is perfect for keeping the cool out and the warmth in. Easy to look after and care for, the throw provides a beautifully comfortable and cosy warmth wherever it is used.
