(4) Seasoned Pro

We wouldn’t dress in heavy knits during the highs of summer, so why should your couch? Summer months should be all about light linen drapes. What could be more perfect than the ombré Saraille Magenta linen throw lazily strewn over your sofa?

During the winter months, play around with warm and rich textures. As soon as the temperature drops, we will be lounging on the woollen Wilson Indigo Throw drinking hot chocolate!

Styling your throw

The best thing about styling your throw is that there are no rules! Whether balance and symmetry is your thing, or you prefer slung-together topsy turvy, it really doesn’t matter. Some people choose to centrally place their throw and fold it over the back rest, whilst others opt to slink it over one arm of the sofa for a more slouchy and ‘lived-in’ vibe.
