Sofa throws FAQs
All of your sofa and bed throw questions answered.
What exactly is a throw?
A throw is a lightweight blanket that is used to dress a sofa, armchair or bed. Throws can be used as a decorative feature whilst helping keep a room feel cosy and warm. It also doubles up as a blanket for colder climes.
What size throw do you need for a double bed?
Bed throws are perfect for styling a bedroom whilst doubling up as extra bedding. But what size throw do you need for a double bed? It depends what you’re using the bed throw for. If it’s for decorative purposes then 127 cm x 152 cm is an ideal size – and will drape on the floor. As an additional layer for warmth then 178 cm x 229 cm will cover the entire bed.
How to dress a sofa with cushions and throws
Using cushions and throws to dress a sofa can transform a room as well bring together interior elements. When styling a sofa throw, either; drape the throw over one corner of the sofa to create a relaxed, casual look; fold the sofa throw and fold it across the back of the sofa to create a neat tidy look; roll the throw and place it at the back of the sofa.
When it comes to cushions, mix and match, but don’t over do it. For a 3 seater sofa, two cushions in one corner, one cushion in the other will suffice. Read more about cushion arrangements here.
What is a throw over blanket?
