How to put a throw blanket on a chair

Updated April 17, 2017

Throw blankets are convenient because of their smaller size and light weight. They are often kept in the living room or other areas of the home that might become chilly. Throw blankets can easily be integrated into the room's decor by draping them over a chair or couch when not in use. Keep a throw blanket over a favourite chair for easy access and to add a touch of warmth to your room.

Select a blanket that matches your decor. If the throw blanket is a permanent decoration fixture, choose one that complements the chair and the rest of the room. Throw blankets come in a variety of colours and textures and it should be easy to find one to suit your existing decor.

Consider purchasing a matching throw pillow. Throw pillows add a sense of comfort to furniture and one that is similar to the throw blanket will tie it together as a single piece of decor.

Fold the blanket in a way that complements the chair or couch. A narrow fold should be used for chairs. A wide fold can be used for couches.

Iron the creases of the folded throw blanket to keep it in shape, if you want a neater look. Read the label carefully for ironing instructions.

Drape the blanket over the chair or couch. Position it so that the centre of the blanket is resting on top of the chair or the back of the couch.

Remove the throw blanket when you want to use it.
