Throws

When choosing your home furnishings, cushions and throws should be at the very top of your wish list. Not only can a snuggly throw add texture and depth to your living space, but it’s also a crucial extra layer for cosy nights in curled up on the sofa. From super soft fleece throws to luxurious faux fur designs, there’s something to suit all tastes and styles on the Houzz UK shop.

What is a throw?


Blankets and throws are often confused, and although they are indeed similar, they both serve slightly different purposes. Whilst both throws and blankets provide extra warmth, throws are primarily designed for decoration. This is why they come in such a wide variety of colours, patterns and designs: from striped or checked throws to tassel and pom-pom throws, it’s easy to completely transform your living space with the addition of these simple home accessories. Plus, throws are a great way of regularly giving your living space a seasonal refresh without spending a fortune. Create a bright, fresh feel for spring with light green, cream or yellow cotton throws, and then introduce warmer tones when Christmas comes around.

How to use a throw?


One of the advantages of a throw is the countless ways in which you can use it to change the look and feel of your home. We’ve put together a short list of ideas, however, the possibilities really are endless!

  • Over a chair or sofa

    Large throws are perfect for draping over the back of sofas, sofa beds or armchairs. Or, add a dash of colour to your study by folding a throw over the arm of your office chair.


  • On the end of the bed

    Lay a wool throw over the end of your bed to keep your feet warm and cosy. Combine them with other decorative accessories to create the look you want: choose neutral colours like brown and grey for a relaxing ambience, or opt for vibrant patterns and motifs to instantly bring fresh appeal to your bedroom decor. Whilst throws for beds often come in different dimensions to fit different bed sizes, i.e. a throw for a king-size bed will be larger than one for a single bed, there is no industry standard like there is for other bedding items.


  • Next to the fire

    Roll your throws up and stack them in a basket next to the sofa or fire. Not only will this create a rustic feel, but it will also mean that you’ll always have enough throws to hand for you and your guests during the chilly autumn and winter months!
