Objects of Lust: Missoni Throws

It's cold, wet, and dreary here today, so I'm craving color and coziness. These delicious wool throws from iconic Italian design house Missoni fit the bill perfectly. (Even in flush times, I can't see spending quite so much on a blanket, no matter how lovely -- buy hey, it doesn't cost a cent to feast the eyes, right? And if you're in the position to cough up some cash, one of these would make for a bold, colorful accent draped over the back of a chair or folded at the foot of a bed, even in warmer weather.) Above: Jamiro Throw, $410 from Bedding, Etc.

Humbert Cushions and Throws, $102 and $315 each from Bedding, Etc. (For those of us on a tight budget, IKEA's $20 Jorun Throw is a comparable -- though far less luxurious -- option.)

Kiruna Throw, $670 from Bedding, Etc.

Karlos Throw, $295 at Bedding, Etc.

Harpo Throw, $275 at Pillows and Throws

So love Missoni--and completely cannot afford it. The only possible substitute I've found in the East Bay is the linen outlet in North Berkeley in the same complex as Trove and Ethnic Arts (San Pablo/Gilman/10th St). They have sales in the summer and some of the towel options are very Missoni-esque. Anyone have suggestions for similar looks to the zigzag blanket other than the Ikea version (which is really polyester-ish--not very comfy). btw--you have such a good eye, leah. and so many of the things you love are things that call to me too.
