Blanket Ideas

There’s nothing more satisfyingthan coming home and snuggling into a warm blanket, whether it be a chunky knitted throw on an armchair or a sleek wool blanket on the end of the bed for extra cold nights. The right blanket makes the perfect nook to come home to, to ward off winter’s chill with a book and steaming cup of tea. You’ll find all manner of blankets among Trouva’s pages, all high quality, made with care and from independent designers.
