I love blankets and throws, and because we keep our home so cold in the winter, we have quite a few throughout our home. We use throws as part of our decor throughout the year, but now that winter is approaching, you’ll find more of them folded and stacked in corners or on the couch, so they’re ready when we want to cuddle underneath them to stay warm.

When my husband and I first had the idea to create a gallery of ways to use a throw, I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to come up with nine ideas. But as we started looking, we ended up finding even more that I didn’t include here. Of all of them, I have to say my favorite is the wool throw used on a dining room table, and we’re also thinking about adding something similar to our picnic table for the fall and winter!

A great way to protect the couch.

8. Draped over a chair (via Amazon)

A great way to protect your furniture’s upholstery, especially if it is leather.

9. Folded across the end of the bed (via West Elm)

It is ready for that quick power nap if you can squeeze one in your busy day!
