This throw is absolutely wonderful. It's incredibly soft on both sides, thick and warm, and just fabulous to look at. I'm using in on my bed for extra warmth. It really seals in the heat, and it's heavy enough to stay put. I ordered the white, wishing there was a champagne color to match my bedroom. This one is magically the champagne color I was dreaming of. So if you want real white, you might be disappointed with this one. If you like cream tones like myself, then you'll be thrilled with the color. It's amazing to look at and adds a lot of texture. A very easy addition for someone like myself who struggles with the concept of interior design. I do wish it was a bit larger, but it does cover me almost entirely, so it's fine used in addition to the duvet on my bed. If I get too warm to use it this summer, I might just have to figure out a way to hang in on the wall. Super luxurious and fun.
