If you’re looking for a speedy way to update your living room, upgrading your soft furnishings with a brand new sofa throw is an ultra-quick fix. With a huge range available – including fleece throws, cotton throws and wool throws – there’s a sofa throw to suit every interior and budget.
Throws for sofas are super versatile and a must-have homeware staple. A sofa throw will protect your furniture from spills and pet hair and is also a cosy way to snuggle up. Better still, the way a new sofa throw is styled can completely transform the look of a room by adding texture and visual depth, not to mention, extra colour and pattern, too.
Beth Travers, Founder and Creative Director at Bobo1352, agrees: ‘When it comes to your interiors it’s the final touches that really pull the space together to give it that homely feel; this stretches across art, vignette styling and your soft accessories. It’s all about the textures and feels.
‘You can have the most beautiful sofa in the world but it’s the styling that makes it pop. The expertly chosen accessories can really make it sing.’
What colour sofa throw should I pick?
The great thing about sofa throws is that they’re a quick and easy way to update your living room – not to mention, non-permanent! This means you can switch the colour of your sofa throw as much as your mood dictates. Franck Jehanne & Brijesh Patel, Founders at lifestyle accessories brand, Heating & Plumbing London, suggest getting playful with the colour you choose: ‘For a neutral sofa, we would recommend a splash of colour. This will lift the room instantly and when you get bored with that colour it’s a lot cheaper to replace a throw than a full sofa.
‘Dark sofas in a darkly decorated room look fabulous with grey tones. If your sofa has seen better days, the easiest way to upgrade it is by picking a throw with abstract patterns or vibrant colours, this will give it a lively kick.’
What material should I choose for my sofa throw?
When it comes to choosing the material of your throw it’s important to consider its intended purpose, seasonality, as well as your lifestyle. Are you investing in a large sofa throw to protect or cover your sofa, or do you plan to snuggle up underneath it? Will you use the same throw year-round or change it up depending on the weather and season?
‘A lighter throw is perfect for the summer months, whilst a cotton mix is perfect for winter,’ says Suzy McMahon, Buyer at Sofology.
A wool sofa throw is going to keep you cosy in winter and is super hard-wearing too, whilst a lightweight woven throw is perfect when temperatures pick up. Fleece throws are a luxurious way to dress up your sofa and the perfect choice in the coldest months. Budget-friendly throws made from acrylic are not only cheap but easy to wash and change, making them a great option if you’re protecting your sofa from pets or children.
