Throw blankets are a great accessory for adding color and texture to a sofa or chair. But how do all those blankets in home magazines look casually draped over the back of the couch just right?

For a clean, organized look, take the throw and fold it in thirds lengthwise, first with one side and then the other. Next, fold this long piece in half. Lay it over one corner of a sofa or chair, tucking it in the back. Smooth it out if needed.

The Flip and Flop Method

First, fold the blanket in half vertically, matching up the corners. Then, flip it in half over your forearm and simply flop it over the corner of a sofa or chair. Arrange edges and pillows as desired.

The Flip and Toss Method

Fold the throw in half vertically again, but this time, pinch the middle fold and toss it onto the area of furniture you want to cover. With a snappy flick of the wrist, it will always land where you want it. If you're satisfied with the placement, leave as is and add pillows. If you don't like how it looks, you can always pick it up and toss again!
