Adding tapestry throws to your home décor is one of the easiest ways to add a bit of color and design, while promoting a comfortable and cozy atmosphere. Whether you add them to the family room, the sunroom, the nursery, or a child’s room, they are sure to be a welcome addition.

Choosing a Style

One of the great things about tapestry throws is the fact that you can find them in so many different colors, designs, and styles. No matter your interests or the theme of a room, you are sure to find a throw that will reflect your interests, theme, and personal style.

They are a great way of adding a personalized touch, whether you prefer a theme such as Americana, or just want one that features your favorite cat or dog. Regardless of whether your room is contemporary, rustic or traditional, there are plenty of designs from which to choose.

Great Ways to Utilize Tapestry Throws

A tapestry throw can add a wonderful colorful accent to your sofa, loveseat, or chair. You can either drape the throw casually, or arrange it folded over the back of the sofa to add a more traditional decorating appearance.

To add a cozy touch to your favorite reading corner or a chair by the fireplace, drape a throw over the arm of the chair along with a comfortable pillow. They are also a great addition to the bedroom or guest room, since they can be used to add some extra warmth to the bed at night or simply as a quick cover-up if you want to curl up on the bed and read a good book.

A throw can even double as art if you hang it on the wall to be admired. A nice thickly woven tapestry throw can even work as a decorative area rug.

Accent a Decorating Theme

Because of their decorative and artistic design, tapestry throws are great for complementing the theme of a room. Whether your room is decorated with Southwestern flair, soft romantic floral designs, or a nautical theme, you can find throws that can add just the right touch.

They are also great for adding a bit of holiday cheer to a room. In fact, some people enjoy having a different throw for every holiday or season. It can be one of the least expensive and easiest ways to add a warm holiday touch to a room.

A sports-themed throw can also be the perfect addition to the family room, game room or a teen’s room.

Tapestry Throws as Gifts

Tapestry throws also make wonderful gifts. Because they come in so many varied designs, you can find the perfect pattern for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, or anniversaries. They are also the perfect choice for a housewarming gift.

A thoughtfully chosen throw with a spiritual design or scriptural quote can be a meaningful gift that will be long cherished. There are even throws that are designed to be monogrammed or embroidered, such as those which feature a family tree motif, which could become your next generation’s treasured heirloom.
