Ah, springtime in New York! Flowers are blooming everywhere and the weather outside is getting warmer which means soon the air conditioner will be going on full blast in our New York City apartment. Which, of course, means arguments over how much to turn it up or down will ensue. I have no choice but to sit in the living room wrapped in my daughter’s princess blanket. While it’s a soft, beautiful blanket, I must admit I do look a little ridiculous all wrapped up it. I’ve been searching for adult throws that have an adult look to them, but that can also be appropriate and, most importantly, soft enough for kids. I found exactly what I was looking for at MaxDaniel.com
MaxDaniel has a line of adult and baby throws in gorgeous, unique prints. The patterns are either solid in classic colors, or wild animal prints that are fun and trendy. I sampled the Platinum Rosebud & Satin Adult Throw Double Sided. Ultra-plush is the first thing that came to my mind. Another thing that came to my mind is how elegant and exquisite it looked: tiny little rosebuds all over on both sides. All throws can also come with a satin backing if you choose but I think it kind of defeats the purpose – when you wrap yourself in a blanket you want to feel the really soft side, which also happens to be the gorgeous side – and usually that’s the side that’s facing the outside. With both sides equally beautiful and soft, I can now look good and feel good (who says I can’t have it all?!)
Throws are a generous 72 x 60. They are machine washable and can be dried in a no-heat dryer.
You can purchase the Platinum Rosebud & Satin throw here. Price is $225. There are other adult throws ranging from $185 and up. Baby throws start at $58 and security blankets are $26.
I was not paid for this post. I did receive a throw for review purposes.
