Wrap up for winter
Here at Futon Company we’re big fan of wraps. Snuggly blankets that will see us through the winter months have always been a firm favourite.
What’s more, they’re the ideal accessory to change the look and feel of your place without costing the earth. And when it comes to blankets, size doesn’t matter – whether your space is big or small, a warm, cosy blanket is always the perfect fit.
So we were pleased to hear that our blanket fetish is ‘a thing’ in the wider world. In fact, according to the design world, blankets are bang on trend – “the humble blanket has gone haute. For AW2018 Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Derek Lam all put blankets on the catwalk.” That’s according to grazia.co.uk. Apparently at Roksanda “models wrapped yellow picnic-style blankets around themselves.”
grazia.co.uk attributes the popularity of the blanket to several factors and says: “The rise of the status blanket also chimes with shifts in technology. Social media has introduced our private domestic spaces into the public domain so it’s not illogical that we might want to accessorise our homes in the same way as we do ourselves. Furthermore, thanks to the convenience of app culture, and the moreishness of Netflix staying in has become an event in itself.”
Futon Company says: Blankets, wraps, bedspreads, throws, whatever you call them, a snug cover up is the perfect accompaniment to a cold winter night. Keep cosy with our wide range of taste-tastic throws!
