Chenille Heathered Stripe Throw

Restoration Hardware's Heathered  Stripe Throw

At just $59.00, this beautiful throw will keep you warm on the sofa or look good thrown over the corner of your arm chair.  It’s oversized at 50” x 70” and the blankets from Restoration Hardware are just luxurious.  I bought a chenille throw for my father a couple years ago and the weight of it and quality were impeccable.
