by Melissa Goldstein
throw5 1. RAINBOW CONNECTION The Summer of Love meets Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in this Tie-Dye Kantha Quilt comprising vintage handwoven textiles, for an against-all-odds, totally chic result. $170, Furbish
throw2 2. COMFORT IN Made in Lithuania, this open-weave Senovinis (that's Lithuanian for 'old-fashioned') cotton blanket feels nostalgic and personal in the very best way--like the Eastern European grandma you didn't know you had has been saving it for you all these years. $140, Shop Fog Linen
thrownew 3. GONE WITH THE WIND If your geometric pillows are getting lonely, why not fix them up with this sea foam cotton-knit Wind Farm Throw, finished with a bold tangerine stripe. $69, Crane & Canopy
throw6 4. LINE UP This wool blanket feels like a Paul Smith prototype--pre-signature-stripes. We love the retro look of it, and the contagiously happy, yet understated, rainbow scheme. $100, Zara Home
throw3 5. LIGHTEN UP We're crazy for the high-low treatment of these Tie-Dye Throws, with their AllSaints-feeling post-apocalyptic vibe and elegant tassels. They're sourced from Burkina Faso through international nonprofit Aid to Artisans, who provides economic opportunities to skilled craftspeople looking to build profitable businesses. $100, ABC Carpet & Home
throw7 6. HISTORY LESSON London-based designer Suki Cheema draws inspiration from his travels for his home accessories collection for Horne, which features centuries-old Indian-influenced embroidery and silk-screen techniques. This throw combines timeless craftsmanship with a decidedly modern contrasting graphic design. $172, Horne
throw8 7. NATURAL INSTINCT We're huge fans of Austin, Texas-based Stone Textile designer Elizabeth Mollen, whose Bamboo Stripe Throw is all-natural and eco-friendly, with an on-trend black-and-white stripe pattern featuring bespoke-feeling details such as raised seams. $250, Stone Textile Studio
throw10 8. BEACHY KEEN Call the J.Crew catalogue photographer because all we need for a cover shoot is this summer-weight muted blue and gray Main Coastal Throw, a windswept beach, a lobsterbake, and maybe Jenna Lyons. The alpaca and merino blanket is hand-loomed and woven to order. $450, Swans Island
throw9 9. EXOTIC BIRD Named for the Hindi word for parrot, Pyar & Co.'s Tota Throw is handwoven in India and features summery color-blocking that feels popsicle-inspired.  $185, Pyar & Co.
throw4 10. COLOR WHEEL Each of these one-of-a-kind Kantha Throws is handcrafted by female artisans in villages throughout India from reclaimed cotton saris. So start crafting that line about how you picked yours up at a little market in Jaipur--it's almost true. $128, Nordstrom
