Cozy winter throw blankets are like a classic scarf for the home: they’re always in style, go with any design aesthetic, and the easiest way to add color, texture, and dimension to a room. This chameleon of a home décor accessory offers one of the simplest and quickest ways to up the ante on a room with chunky knits and layered woven fabrics. Plus, we take our lounge time seriously. From lazy Saturday mornings spent drinking pour-over coffee to early Sunday night dinner-and-HBO-Max rituals, these moments call for something warm and knitted draped around our shoulders. (And who doesn’t love to cocoon in plush mohair when snowflakes are falling outside and your favorite show is on?)

Whether you’re looking for ultimate comfort to counter the winter chill in the air, or for a way to add a bit of texture to your space, we have got you covered—literally!—with these 17 cozy, chic winter throw blankets. Ranging from ultra-luxe to simple and refined, each of these pieces is a décor-must that will warm up any room in your home. Read on to find the perfect one to toss on the corner of your bed, the side of your couch, even on the back of a dining room chair to stay snug through the season and beyond.

Urban Outfitters Aiden Tufted Throw Blanket

At first glance, this thick cream cotton throw is decidedly neutral and simple. Take a closer look and you’ll see the geometric pattern and tufted accents, replete with thick tassels at the end, which lends a bohemian flair to a room. This is a perfect piece to add a bit of dimension to a cream sofa or chaise.

The Tartan Blanket Co. Recycled Wool Blanket

Made from recycled wool and other salvaged mixed long fibers, this sustainable blanket is super soft and durable. We love how the giant checked pattern makes enough of a statement to add a punch to a living room, yet it’s still neutral enough to quietly complement the rest of a room’s décor.

West Elm Wool Knit Throw in Charcoal

Handcrafted, ultra-thick, and endlessly cozy. This wool-blend throw is the equivalent of your ride-or-die: It will be with you through it all: movies, morning tea, snuggle time—you name it. The rich dark-hued grey lends a neutral gravitas to a room.

West Elm Wool Knit Throw in Charcoal, $97.50

Jungalow Soleil Throw

Leave it to Jungalow founder Justina Blakeney to up the ante on a blanket in a way we’ve never seen before. This thick black-and-cream throw features vibrant sun medallions and thick tassels that all combine to make a décor piece that mirrors a traditional Suzani quilt. It’s part lounge accessory and part art accessory perfect for a bedroom, reading nook, or living room.

Jungalow Soleil Throw, $99

Casper Pinstripe Plaid Throw

A simple all-wool blanket that feels like you’re wrapped in your favorite worn-in sweater.  We love how the muted pinstripe adds just enough interest without taking away from other elements of a room.

Casper Pinstripe Plaid Throw, $64.50

H&M Home Soft Wool-Blend Throw

Textured wool blends together with thick tassels in a buttery golden hue to make a cozy blanket that is as neutral and chic as it is a stylish accent piece. Simply put: We’re obsessed with this blanket (and the price) and want one for the guest room, living room, and bedroom. Heck, we’d even consider an extra for the kitchen for when late-night cups of hot cocoa call for a little extra coziness.

H&M Home Soft Wool-Blend Throw, $34.99

IKEA ASKLÖNN Throw in Green/Blue

IKEA, you always deliver. Every. Single. Time. This lighter-weight throw comes in a refreshing mint and sky-blue combination that lends a hit of cool color to, say, a cream couch or leather chair. The woven pattern allows plenty of air to circulate, which means it’s perfect for tossing it over your lap in a single layer on cooler evenings or doubling up for when the winter temps really drop.

IKEA ASKLÖNN Throw in Green/Blue, $24.99

Quince Mongolian Cashmere Throw

If we could, we would wear this indulgently gorgeous cashmere throw, we would. (Come to think of it, the class throw size and 4” tassels make it the perfect size to be worn as an oversized wrap… but we digress.) The fine-grade pure Mongolian cashmere is an absolute dream: It’s pillowy soft and luxurious, and it won’t make you overheat, which is the beauty of natural quality cashmere. We love the classic warm caramel hue that complements almost any color couch or chair.  

Quince Mongolian Cashmere Throw, $119.90

Røros Tweed Asmund Bold Norwegian Wool Blanket

First thing’s first: This is an investment piece. The thick wool and precise Scandinavian finish call for a higher price tag. Considering this, our eyes cannot get over the striking design of this piece: bright pinks and cool greens crash together with black and brown to make an accessory that is more than just a cozy blanket, it’s an absolute art piece. When we think of the joy this blanket brings to a room, we start thinking how low we’d get our “cost per wear” with it.

Faribault Woolen Mill Zig Zag Throw

Impart a bit of pattern and coziness into a living room with this thick throw made of extremely high-quality merino wool. (Faribault Mill is a small-town family-owned mill that’s been specializing in woolens since the late 1800s.) Speaking of wool, the advantages of this natural material are abundant. For one, it’s a natural fiber that breathes and insulates the cold, keeping you perfectly snug—but never too hot—during the winter.

Faribault Woolen Mill Zig Zag Throw, $200

Sunday Citizen Braided Pom Pom Throw in Navy

Hypoallergenic. Buttery soft. Breathable. This generously oversized throw checks all the boxes for a cozy winter décor staple. (It also can transition into other seasons given its breathability.) What we love most are the thick braided detailing and giant tassel pom poms that give a dose of interest to a corner chair or simple sofa.

Sunday Citizen Braided Pom Pom Throw in Navy, $160

World Market Soft Sherpa Throw Blanket in Sage

We love it when we come across a décor staple (and wardrobe staple, for that matter) that hits all the rights notes, from east to design to price—which is exactly what this blanket does. The cost is low but the comfort is off-the-charts. We’re especially into this throw given that soft natural greens are a hit for 2022.

World Market Soft Sherpa Throw Blanket in Sage, $17.48

Stray and Wander Dream Blanket

This blanket is a bit on the lighter side but still cozy enough to take off winter’s chill. Made of ethically sourced, hand-loomed organic Turkish cotton (dream), it is a piece that you could use over and over again, from lounge sessions to springtime picnics. And since the cotton gets softer and softer with every wash, this is an investment décor accessory made to last.

Stray and Wander Dream Blanket, $150

The Citizenry Esperance Alpaca Throw

We’re always amazed at one-of-a-kind sourcing the team at The Citizenry pulls off. Every product is utterly unique, and this woven blanket sets the perfect example. Made by weavers in the Peruvian Andes, it is an Alpaca Wool accessory that is so dense and thick, all thanks to the precise looming work. To say this least, this is a piece to grace on the couch so it’s always within reach for chilly nights.

The Citizenry Esperance Alpaca Throw, $175

Project 62™ Textured Faux Reversible Throw Blanket

Chill Friday movie nights and Sunday afternoon naps get so much cozier because of this reversible, plush blanket. The rib-knit texture and insanely soft faux fur feel like you’re draped in a marshmallow. You’ll want to pair this with a scented candle and glass of wine and curl up on the sofa for several hours.

Project 62™ Textured Faux Reversible Throw Blanket, $24.99


Another IKEA win for when the outdoor air is icy. White fringe graces this rich navy blanket that mirrors the fluffy, super warm, indulgent feel of mohair. A gorgeous piece that adds instant texture and interest to a living room.

IKEA RUNFRID Throw, $29.99

Bearaby Tree Napper Weighted Blanket

Equal parts gushy throw blanket and wellness accessory. That’s right. This weighted blanket drapes 15 soft pounds over you to help ease racing thoughts before sleep and induce a state of calm. That aside, the chunky knit is akin to a statement-making sweater.

Bearaby Tree Napper Weighted Blanket, $269
