I love, love, love this throw (got the gray/blue one). It's beautiful and incredibly softthe best of form & function combined. I bought it with the intention of using it primarily for decoration, but I curl up in it all the time (it's large enough to cover a petite person). I like that the pattern is only on one side (the back is a solid silvery-gray). Makes it seem more decorative when it's casually thrown on the couch and you see the contrast of both sides. I was concerned that the light blue would make it skew a bit too "baby blanket", but it is actually pretty sophisticated looking in person.
