5 Different Ways To Style Your Throws For Sofa and Bed's
Throws are the perfect way to transform any room into a haven of cosy comfort. From cotton throws for the sofa to quilted throws at the end of your bed, soft furnishings immediately add a welcoming, homely charm to any room.
Grab your throw on a chilly evening for a night curled up on the sofa or layer it over the end of your bed for a beautifully styled look. Throws benefit from being completely versatile so they can be used all around your home and, in this blog post, we have pulled together our five favourite ways to style throws.
Introduce Relaxed Styling To Any Room
Throws add a relaxed, casual style to any room. Simply drape a throw over the arm of your sofa for an effortless finish to your living room, or place a blanket over the bottom corner of your bed. Draping a throw is a great way to add texture to a room and it will always come in handy on those cooler evenings. Try using a chunky knit or patterned throw to introduce more depth for a truly designer look.
Add A Splash Of Colour To Your Home
Colour can have a huge impact on so many different areas of your life including mood and sleeping habits. Considering the psychological effects of colour is an important part of choosing your home decor and a throw can be the perfect way to introduce a splash of colour. From grey bedrooms to beige living rooms, soft furnishings can immediately break up block colour, adding more personality and completely transforming a space.
Fold a navy throw over an accent chair for a sophisticated and stylish finish in your living room, add depth to a white bedroom with a neutral knitted throw or drape a sage green throw at the end of your bed for a truly casual yet tranquil space.
Embrace Cosy Cooler Evenings
There's nothing better than settling down at the end of a long day and grabbing a throw that has been folded over the back of the sofa or arranged stylishly in a basket in the corner of your living room.
Wool blend throws are the perfect warming addition for a laid-back restful evening whilst cotton throws are an idyllic way to end a summer BBQ snuggled up on your outdoor furniture due to their beautifully breathable material.
Layer On Your Bed
Layering is one of our top tips for dressing your bed like a designer. Carefully select throws with different colours and materials for a bed that feels as snug as it looks. Textured throws and white bedding are a match made in heaven‚ you can even try incorporating a bedspread to truly create a plush, luxurious-looking bed.
Whether you're wanting that hotel-inspired look with a folded throw over the end of your bed, or prefer a more laid-back feel with a casually-placed throw, you can style your throws in a variety of ways to match your bedroom aesthetic.
Get Garden Party Ready
Throws can look stylish and sophisticated when teamed with your garden furniture, particularly when garden party season arrives or if you're enjoying an evening watching the stars. Using throws across your garden furniture is certain to make the space feel welcoming, evoking a homely atmosphere.
Simply add a throw over the edge of your garden sofa or drape over the back of a chair for a charming look. Finish off with some cushions for a garden that is as stylish as it is comfy - just remember to take your throws inside at the end of the evening to avoid them being caught up in the showery British weather.
Different Ways To Style Your DUSK Throw
There are many ways to style your throw. Whether you're wondering how to use a throw on a sofa or how to create a sophisticated, hotel-inspired bedroom, you can easily achieve your desired aesthetic with these simple DUSK throw styling tips.
The Mindful Drape
Draping a throw is the perfect way to achieve a relaxed feel without looking untidy. Create a blissful cosy corner on your sofa with a throw draped over the back corner and arm, finished off with a luxury cushion, for a space you're sure to love. Alternatively, drape your throw diagonally across the bottom corner of your bed for a truly dream-worthy bedroom look.
The Sophisticated Fold
If you're a lover of a more structured and sophisticated look, a folded throw will instantly add a more welcoming texture to your home without looking out of place. Simply fold to your desired size and place over your footstool, chair arm or even the end of your bed for a look that oozes elegant charm.
The Casual Scrunch
Perfect for more casual interiors, a scrunched throw looks as though it has been effortlessly placed in your home and immediately creates that welcoming lived-in feeling. Layering on top of your bedspread, it forms a relaxed look for a beautiful bed.
The Lazy Throw
Charming but informal, the lazy throw creates a consciously casual feel. Simply placed as it falls, there is no wrong way to create this look. This style is ideal for the end footstool or an L-shaped sofa to tie the whole room together.
The Stylish Arrangement
Arranging your throws in a stylish basket in your lounge or bedroom will help to create an eye-catching feature in your home. Not only is it a practical way to store your blankets, but it is also a great way to decorate a spare corner so you can make the most of your space.
How To Wash And Care For Your Throws
We recommend that you wash your throws once a month to keep them feeling fresh and looking new. However, it's important that you always read the care label to make sure you're washing and drying your luxury throws in the most suitable and effective way.
DUSK Top Tip: When washing our throws on a cool temperature, a large net laundry bag will prevent any detailing getting caught and damaged in the machine. There's no better way to keep your throws smelling fresh than letting them dry outside too. If you have the outdoor space, we suggest regularly hanging your throws outside to air out in between washes.

What Is The Difference Between A Bedspread And A Throw?
A bedspread is typically larger than a throw as it is designed to cover the whole surface area of a bed, while a throw is typically smaller and is usually styled across the bottom of a bed. Throws are often considered to be warmer due to the variety of materials available, with a bedspread being a much more lightweight design.
What Is The Best Throw Material?
The best material for your throws depends greatly on your personal preference. However, it's important to consider a soft throw blanket that is durable, comfortable and easy to clean. Cotton or wool blend fabrics will offer you a throw that is not just practical but also stylish and cosy.
