In fashion, there are a few classics that will never go out of style—and also happen to be quite an investment. Birkin bags. Burberry trench coats. You know what we're talking about. In interiors, we see the same thing: Eames lounge chairs, Saarinen tulip tables, etc. While most of the classics we see in interiors tend to be furniture items, there is one décor item that we'll be lusting after until we draw our last breaths: the Hermès Avalon Blanket ($1525).
Made with a blend of cashmere and wool, it is soft, warm, and decorated with the enviable Hermès H monogram and a checkered pattern, it is timelessly chic. We've seen it in the chicest interiors, from celebrity homes like Ellen DeGeneres's L.A. home to fashion blogger spaces. It can be used in any space where a blanket or throw would come in handy: bedrooms, living rooms, outdoor spaces… even kids' rooms if you want to get really fancy.
Of course, it's quite a splurge at more than $1500—when a $60 blanket would serve you just fine. So it's not a piece we can all rush out to buy, but we can't say we'd ever turn one down should an Avalon arrive at our doorsteps.
Scroll on to see how the Avalon has been styled in a handful of our favorite rooms.
