The Best Five Throw Rugs
Before we dive into telling you about our favourite range of throw rugs, let’s first clear up something that has been a bit of a contentious topic in the Collective Sol office – just what is a throw rug. We’re split down the middle on this one. Half of us refer to throw rugs as rugs traditionally designed for the floor, and the other half consider throw rugs to be throws for the couch. This is a tough one, but we’re sticking with the latter; throw rugs are for your favourite couch and bed and are our idea of perfection on chilly nights (just add wine).
What’s not to love about throw rugs, they add layers to your home, they can either blend in with the aesthetics of your room or they can become an easily added statement piece. Throws are ideal on the couch in winter and as a light bed-throw in summer. They can be soft and light or thick and chunky. They can have tassels and pom-poms, they can be wool or cotton, they can be woven or printed. Have we sold you yet? If you’re still on the fence about the name, we hear you, but stick with us, we’ve got 5 throw rugs you’re going to love!
This is the newest throw in the collection and it’s already becoming a front-runner for our all time favourite throw. We love monochrome, and we love the versatility of Harper; whether your home is a black and white dream, boho, coastal or more traditional, every home has a place ready for the Harper and it’s pom poms.
Handmade by artisans in Morocco, the Harper throw is made of 100% cotton with classic black stripes and playful wool pom poms that make it hard not to love.
Depending which room you’re looking to add a touch of style to, our top places for the Harper throw rug are on your favourite couch, or front and centre on the bed. Let the pom poms hang on either side, and the statement stripe create your new ultimate bed spread. Pair with crisp white linen and you’ve got yourself a Pinterest-worthy bed.
If you’re not already humming the Lola tune by The Kinks, we salute you. Lola embodies summer – with a vintage & coastal inspired print, it’s an ideal throw rug for your home, whether you’re by the beach or not.
The Lola throw is made of 100% cotton, with one of our favourite floral prints, it pairs perfectly with white linens and neutral tones. We’ve designed this throw rug in 2 sizes; the large for the couch, and the extra large perfect for the bed. We love to use the extra large as a lightweight summer throw, for those hot nights when a throw rug is all you need!
Pair the Lola throw with matching cushions to complete the look and bring summer to life in your home all year round.
