For the long autumn nights through the first signs of spring, here's a collection of blankets and throws to make your time inside on chilly days and nights nice and toasty warm.

amenity alpaca afghan ocean blue knit

Amenity Alpaca Afghan

Consider this a classic case of girl-meets-afghan, love at first sight. Amenity Home has just introduced their new fall/winter collection and wowie, these hand-knit, 100% wool throws are just lovely. They come in a series of gradient color schemes and look like the kind of blanket we'd be prod to toss on the back of our sofa. An instant hit for the upcoming chilly months, you can preorder online but they won't start shipping until November. Well worth the wait!

ferm living geometric blanket throw

Remix Blanket

It's edging into autumn and a night in on the sofa with a movie sounds awfully nice. The beauty of this geometrically-inclined cotton throw is that its triangular pattern will complement a solid-colored couch or give a busier print even more visual intrigue (not to mention keep you warm under cover).

coyuchi honeycomb blanket

Honeycomb Blanket

Trust us when we say this organic cotton throw is ideal for a living room standby. Sturdy enough to handle a restless napper, soft enough to make snuggling up a joy, it comes in a variety of colors to suit your space.

infinity rug thumbanil

Infinity Throw

By skillfully playing with the patchwork style and color blocks of traditional quilts, husband-and-wife duo Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle create one-of-a-kind throws that are more Palm Springs post-and-beam than Little House on the Prairie.

POD Olli and Lime Egg Blanket

Egg Blanket

This 100% cotton, fleece-lined, supersoft and snuggleworthy Egg blanket was designed for your little one's crib, but its retro colors and simple lines would look just as cool laying at the end of your bed.

POD Rainy Day Mini Blanket Wilson Donna

Rainy Day Mini Blanket

A grey weekend with a chill in the air left us longing for a cozy blanket to cuddle under. We are, as ever, quite taken with Donna Wilson's designs and this 100% lambswool fits the bill to keep us nice and toasty. She's got a knack for patterns, so check out her site for cushions, tea towels, scarves, and plush things to make your heart go pitter patter like an unexpected shower storm.

urbancase subway throw

Wool Throw

Design studio urbancase has upcycled standard issue surplus blankets and turned them into something special. These heavy 100% wool throws are fixed up and stitched up in the firm's Seattle workshop, embroidered with an image in yellow and turquoise inspired by a subway car in Berlin. You're practically guaranteed a quick trip to cozytown when you're cuddled underneath.

HARRY spets anki area blankets

Harry Blankets

It's difficult to browse through Area's online shop without pining to slip back into pajamas and crawl right into bed. Designer Anki Spets has created a beautiful collection of soft textiles—sheets, quilts, shams and more—with mimimal prints and simple textures, and a distinctly Scandinavian style. These 100% cotton Harry herringbone blankets come in four colors and are machine washable.

designers eye multi plaid blanket

Multi Plaid Blanket

Swedish textile studio Designers Eye created this bright wooly blanket with a variety of primary colored plaids. It's long enough to keep both toes and shoulers toasty, and available for purchase in the US from Scandinavian Grace, a fantastic online desitination for a myriad of Scandinavian delights.

Soft Grid Blanket

Britain-based Established & Sons unveiled a new line of Estd-labelled accessories in Milan, forgoing individual designer assignations for a collection that instead focuses on the individual item and the brand itself. We were quite taken with this merino wool blanket, which manages to make flourescent pink and a soft pastel look like just the right accent colors for even the most subdued sofa.
