Chunky Knits are a Thing -- Here's How to Decorate With Them
The idea of six more weeks of winter (damn groundhog!) means we can't stop thinking of ways to make our apartments cozier. Now more than ever, we're grateful that chunky knits have graduated from wardrobe to home for a major statement. Here are five of our favorite pieces to create that ultra delicious and cozy vibe chez vous.
1. Snuggle Up
You can actually buy this gorgeous and ultra-cozy Nantucket Throw ready made or, if you're a knitting junky, you can buy the DIY kit straight from Loopy Mango. Either way you will be snuggling this super warm number while marathoning Friends on Netflix. The chunky chain-knit style makes this knit blanket modern and beautifully graphic.
2. Stand On This
Perfect for the bathroom or kitchen floor, these knit throw rugs from Fog Linen use their signature look of an updated rag effect. Go classically neutral with the grey or add a little color in your life with the red or blue.
3. Head Rest
I am officially OBSESSED with these stylish oversized hand-made looped pillows by MexChic. Made with 100% earth friendly virgin wool, the natural yarns makes them even more of a reason to buy -- so eco-chic! Use them to update a tired couch or as floor pillows when you have company.
4. Sit Down
I'm always a fan of functional and beautifully designed furniture and this chair by Hans Sapperlot is a piece of art! The chunky strips of fabric are woven into something that looks like one of the coziest seats you'll ever have.
5. Hang Around
Wall hangings have been all the rage in the past year and this beauty by Bay Area artist Meghan Shimek is a winner in my book. I love the way the artist mixes raw and oversized neutral yarns to create an ombre effect.
