Throws are a savvy style statement. Throws add color, texture, and warmth to a room.
Throws are alive.
Throws move and never, ever stay in the same position.
Throws are deft at grabbing any person, animal, or bag that skims by them.
The rooms above were styled by a photographer's assistant. Each drape carefully placed. I can say from experience that the flat throws had a thousands swipes to work out the lumps It is blow-your brains-out-maddening to get fringe straight. Notice that most of the pictures don't show the bottom edges of the throw.
It's because throws are alive and they can shift whenever they are inclined.
So beware if you are staging your house for sale, styling your house for photographs or even getting it pretty for visitors. Omit the throws unless they are caged in a basket.
Have a great week!
