Luxury bed throws in timeless designs
What is a bed throw used for?
A bed throw is a must-have accessory for any bedroom. Available in a variety of colours and finishes, this unassuming bedding accessory can help to bring a pop of energetic colour to your room, or set a sophisticated accent with luxury fibres and classic designs.
On cooler nights, a bed throw is just the extra bit of warmth you need as the mercury drops, helping you to sleep soundly and comfortably; for the transitional seasons in autumn and spring, it’s the perfect go-between cover. But bed throws are useful during the day, too: lay one over your duvet covers and transform your night bed into a day bed, perfect for reading and relaxing at the weekends.
Natural bed throws for a healthy sleep
No matter what style or colour you opt for, investing in a design that is made from 100% natural materials, like pure wool or cotton, makes a world of difference.
Synthetic fibres like faux fur don’t breathe, and cause you to sweat during the night, or when you’re lying on it with bare skin as a day bed. In addition, unnatural fibres attract dust and are allergenic, trapping mites and bacteria that can irritate those who suffer from allergies.
Bed throws made from natural fibres, on the other hand, are breathable, so help your bed feel fresh and clean, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.
Quilted bed throws, cotton bed throws or woollen bed throws: which is right for you?
Quilted bed throws
Quilted bed throws are typically filled with a wadding, meaning they’re heavier than single-layer throws, and so better suited for wintertime. A quilted bedspread usually has a cotton shell and is filled with a wool or a polyester filling. Because of the seams that run through the bedspread to hold the filling in place, a quilted blanket will not drape as well as a cotton or wool design, so is better suited for the bed, rather than a sofa or armchair.
Cotton bed throws
Cotton bed throws are not as warm as a quilted one, but it is more versatile, because you’ll be able to use it in other rooms in your home, like the living room on the sofa or in the guest room to place on a day bed. Cotton designs often display intricate woven detailing and interesting textures, too: when constructed with a jacquard weave, a cotton fabric can be woven into soft and voluminous waffle designs, chequered patterns, herringbone styles, and even with eyelet reliefs.
Woollen bed throws
If you’re looking for something in between a warm, quilted bedspread and an oversized cotton throw, you’ll probably find that a wool blanket fits the bill perfectly. Thick wool bed throws are plush and cosy, drape beautifully, are available in a range of colours and styles, and can be used in all rooms of the home – and even double as a coat blanket on cold days! Wool can be woven into myriad finishes, and URBANARA’s collection ranges from knitted bed throws and blankets with fringing and tasselled edges – so there’s bound to be a high-quality woollen blanket for you.
What size should a bed throw be?
Bed throws are mostly common for double and king size beds. At URBANARA we offer most of our bed throws in 140 x 220 cm size which will be perfect for a double bed, but also in larger bed throws in 220 x 240 cm.
Pick your colour - a pink, white or grey bed throw?
An elegant grey bed throw would blend with almost all bedroom décor. More earthy tones, for instance brown, terracotta, mustard yellow or powder pink, would add a sophisticated, natural softness to the space without taking too much attention for the furniture.
