#1 FOR THE VISIONARY
Everyone has that one friend who truly understands modern art. They see stories in every abstraction. Easily imagine organic forms reduced to stark lines. Buy little, and well. Yeah. Give them this throw with confidence.
#2 FOR THE MINIMALIST
Can’t choose a color for your less-is-more friend? Don’t! The layered shapes woven into this throw add more than enough interest for someone who likes to keep things simple. Done and done.
#3 FOR THE HIP TEENAGER / 20 SOMETHING
Imagine your cool little niece opening this throw and saying, “Gosh, I can’t stand cute little winky eyes.” Right? Not gonna happen. She’ll probably start wearing it to virtual school like a cape.
#4 FOR THE GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, CRUELTY-FREE, ALL-NATURAL VEGAN:
You can help someone in your life who watches every step also be boring-free and chilly-free. These are snuggles they can feel good about, inside and out. The materials soothe the conscience and the skin. Each design is subtle, yet unique enough to kick start a collection.
#5 FOR THE PLANT ENTHUSIAST
>> The Mod Leaf Throw
Know someone who has a green thumb and a plant on every flat surface? Or maybe you know someone who grasps their own limits and has a fake plant on every flat surface. Either way, anyone who loves nature’s leafy goodness will enjoy this graphic take on greenery.
#6 FOR THE MID CENTURY MODERN MAN
Bold. Strong. And a bit more complex than you might realize at first glance. Remind you of any guys you know? This design will not disappoint him. Promise.
#7 FOR THE ONE WHO KNOWS ALL THE LOCAL ARTISTS
Hand-glazed coffee mugs, mismatched, of course. Walls hung with art fair finds. A quirky ceramic sculpture made by a local student perched on the bookshelf. A home decorated with balance, not symmetry. This throw design captures the painterly, handcrafted lines that make your favorite art-lover’s heart skip a beat.
#8 FOR THE WORLD TRAVELER
This one’s for the more-is-more crowd! Plenty of eye candy here, with ornamentation galore. Guaranteed to prompt daydreams of crowded marketplaces full of undiscovered treasures—even while binge-watching a favorite show. Between trips, natch.
runner up: also inspired by travel, the India Throw:
#9 FOR THE MODERN BOHEMIAN
This design is cool as funk. Saturated colors that can’t be held down, grooving along in a hypnotic sig-sag pattern because zig-zags would have harshed the mellow. You know someone who will freak over this throw. Pair it with a potted succulent for a whole thing.
#10 FOR THE 80S VIBER
>> Cubes Eco Texture Throw
A little optical illusion-y, a lot snuggly. No matter which color you choose, this throw is good fun for anyone who decorates their space with an electric energy.
#11 FOR THE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FAN
A place for everything, and everything in its place. Does that decisive and defined decorating preference remind you of anyone you know? Don’t give up and settle on a gift card for your dad or son-in-law. Pull the trigger on this throw and watch that face light up.
#12 FOR THE LAKE WEEKEND FRIEND
You know what they don’t need at their cozy weekend retreat? Anything printed with a bear or trout. What they’ll really appreciate is this dose of true rustic style. Guaranteed to make them feel like a model when they throw it over their jammies to stroll onto the deck. Steaming coffee optional.
#13 FOR COUNTRY GIRL IN THE CITY (or the city girl in the country)
This throw just makes itself right at home wherever it goes. From modern farmhouse to cozy dorm room, the graphic plaid woven into heavy recycled cotton is somehow exactly what the space was missing. Perfect for anyone who’s a little bit country, a little bit design snob.
#14 FOR THE MODERN NOSTALGIC
A little bit like great-grandma’s crazy quilt, with a whole lot of graphic punch. Clean and pure blue shattered into fascinating angles is a safe bet for any friend who decorates with a savvy mix of then and now.
