There’s something so beautiful about a throw blanket cascading down the side of a couch. Spreading it out long, yet keeping it ruffled, allows for the entire blanket to be on display without it feeling totally staged. This is a great way to show off a modern throw blanket with a stylish pattern and add a pop of color.
