I bought it to throw over my couch. Our dogs jump up there to look out the window and leave paw prints on my leather couch. I hate the pet covers sold to cover furniture with. If they mess up even a little they look terrible and are a pain to straighten out. So I bought this quilt to try out. Its made well and looks great on the couch even when it gets a bit messed up. My daughter and granddaughter were both impressed with how one small quilt changed the look of my family room.
