A quality throw is a timeless staple, a quintessential part of a cozy evening, and an affordable way to dress up any room. A vibrant hue, a surprising motif, or a tactile knit can add visual interest to any space, especially when paired with a throw pillow or two. Not to mention, blankets are so low maintenance—is there any other accessory that looks best when carelessly tossed around?
Whether you’re hoping to cultivate some Danish hygge at home or you’re looking for a statement piece to dress up white bedding, your perfect pick is out there—and no matter which direction you go in, it'll look stylish in your space.
Here, the best decorative blankets for your bed.
Coyuchi Pismo Organic Blanket
The Pismo Organic Blanket from Coyuchi is a modern update to traditional matelassé. The geometric print in beachy pastels is bordered by eyelash fringe that's guaranteed to add subtle charm and lightness to your space. Even better? The quality goes beyond aesthetics—Coyuchi’s cotton is GOTS-certified organic, and is stone-washed for optimal softness and delicacy. This airy, mid-weight blanket is ideal for warmer weather.
Slowdown Studio Lavette Throw
Featuring bold colors, geometric shapes, and fringed sides, the Lavette Throw from Slowdown Studio has a lot of personality. This is one throw blanket you won’t want to drape loosely over the couch—displayed like a tapestry, this design by Italian artist Nicoletta Aveni is a real piece of art. Made in the U.S. with recycled cotton, this throw is both stylish and thoughtfully made.
Johanna Howard Cozi Throw
For something a bit more lightweight, check out the aptly-named Cozi Throw from Johanna Howard Home. Made of a cotton-wool blend, this gauzy throw is surprisingly warm and can easily be used all year long. It comes in 10 colors and is reversible, so you're basically getting two throws in one. The lighter weight makes it ideal for draping over your bed, but you could just as easily keep it on your sofa or ottoman.
Kelly Clarkson Home Roberts Cotton Throw
For a more playful look, consider the Roberts Cotton Throw from Kelly Clarkson's Wayfair line. This woven blanket features detailed embroidery, pompoms, and floral embellishments that'll add instant style wherever it's placed. Available in two colors (pink and cream), this throw was designed with a French country vibe in mind, but would work well with other design styles too.
Superstitchous Pomegranate Throw
This vibrant throw patterned with pomegranates is sure to add a pop of color and whimsy to any room. And while the design might bring to mind warmer seasons, it’s actually thick enough to satisfy on the coldest winter days, thanks to the eco-friendly upcycled yarn construction. It comes in two sizes, so you decide—statement or snug?
Chunky Wool Studio Chunky Knit Blanket
After you embrace the outdoor chill for some friluftsliv —the Nordic term for outdoor recreation—you’ll need an extremely cozy blanket for some indoor hygge. Nothing promises comfort and warmth quite like an oversized chunky knit blanket fashioned from merino wool, and this one also happens to be totally customizable. It comes in 30 sizes and 23 colors, including sizes specifically for sitting at the foot of your bed, so you have plenty of flexibility in choosing the right cozy level for you.
Cold Picnic Sky Leopard Knit Blanket
Cold Picnic is well-known for their contemporary, abstract textiles, and the Leopard Knit Blanket is no exception. It's the blanket version of their popular Leopard Rug, and is made from a mix of OEKO-TEX certified recycled cotton and polyester yarn. There are two sizes to choose from (30 x 40 inches and 50 x 60 inches), as well as two other colors, although we recommend the sky blue option for a little extra contrast.
Anthropologie Vanessa Knit Throw
This wild, whimsical, and vibrant print from Anthropologie ensures you'll make a bold statement with your décor. Available in four motifs (neutral with lions, blue with citrus fruits, ochre with sun rays, and teal with cheetahs), you get to choose the very specific vibe you want for your space. And if you have white bedding, any of the designs are sure to add a little playfulness to your bedscape.
Sferra Terzo Bed End
If you’re vying for an understated and sophisticated accent, opt for the brushed-cotton classic basket weave of the Terzo Bed End from Sferra. Available in navy, ocean, sea-green, and tin, this accent piece evokes subtle luxury. And if you’re looking for a more refined, bespoke piece (a great gift!), Sferra offers Italian satin-stitch monogramming as well.
MINNA Abstract Throw
Yes, it's on the very high end, but MINNA's Abstract Throw is a real showstopper. Made with cozy merino wool and complete with hand felted abstract shapes, this throw is the perfect finishing touch to your bed. It comes in three colors (hunter green, white/indigo, and pink/oat), each of which have their own distinct vibe while still remaining neutral, and is complete with playful fringe. Plus, this blanket is ethically made by a women's cooperative in Uruguay.
Dusen Dusen Stripe Throw
Looking for something really fun? Try Dusen Dusen's Stripe Throw, which is made from 100 percent cotton and features multi-colored stripes with a bold black-and-white border. This blanket is a real statement piece, and it's guaranteed to add a healthy dose of fun to white bedding—or you can pair it with equally colorful linens for a truly eclectic vibe.
Jungalow Like A Lion Sol Throw Blanket
Vibrant and beautiful, this throw blanket from Jungalow is the perfect piece to layer with white or gray bedding. It's handmade from 100 percent cotton and features textured stitching throughout, plus colorful tassels for a little extra fun. This is a great choice if you want to amp up the contrast, or if you want to implement some color and detailing without going overboard.
