Soft Covers

When the weather outside is frightful, a stylish and fabulous throw is just delightful. Great as a gift (from Santa to you?), a good throw has certain non-negotiable properties, including warmth and sumputuous softness. Choose one in a colour and pattern that adds oomph to your existing decor. Then take cover…all winter, if necessary!


 Banda Merino wool throw, $150, CB2,

► Merino wool’s light weight belies its warmth. Its soft fibres make an ideal and dreamy throw.

The nest Best thing

We love how the look of nesting tables keeps evolving. The latest shape is round tables with slim bases – like a Venn diagram for the living room! When company’s over, pull the smaller one out for extra tabletop space. Chic, smart, sleek. Love it.
