They can be used to add a splash of life and light to a monochromatic space. They can also provide complementary hues for a painting or photo you want to highlight. Throw a printed or patterned throw over a sofa back cushion, over the side of an armchair, an ottoman or even a headboard, and you instantly lend a new look to the space.

3. Throws can ‘protect’ your furniture from accidental spills and everyday wear and tear

Seat cushions are some of the most used parts of a room, and because of that, they easily succumb to colour fading, accidental spills, and wear and tear. Throws can serve as your seat’s barrier against those, while still serving their style-maker role in the space.Make sure to choose throws and blankets made of high-grade material, so you don’t have to worry about them getting worn easily. They should be machine-washable and can be tumble-dried for easier maintenance.
