House Blanket

Donna Wilson has a playful, universally good-humored approach to design (and the fandom of a certain associate editor). Her House Blanket typifies this fun-loving, anything-goes attitude. There’s no assembly required and the House Blanket is always ready to transform the nearest piece of furniture into a fictional and very, very cozy fort.

While it may ratchet up the cost even further, we wish the House Blanket were larger—it barely covers up the two chairs put underneath it, leaving hardly any room to play. Ultimately, this is just a rectangular blanket with a houselike pattern on it. It could use more inventiveness—perhaps a unique, more architectural shape that could drape in interesting ways, or cutouts and characters to take it to the next level.
