I toss my toss pillows whether it's on a sofa or a chair. I don't care for the chopped look as reminds of two pointed dog ears. Think German Shepherd!
|Chopped. Or dog eared. The throw is folded on the sofa back.|
|Tossed. Note the green throw folded on the bench in the corner.|
This type of loose quick fold is what I can manage daily!
|Tossed. Throw folded on the arm of the chair.|
My interpretation of a throw is that it is an item you throw around your shoulders while reading, watching television or napping. Not an item to be thrown on sofa or chair. I find it's really not an achievable look for everyday living. It takes effort to actually style it into a thrown/draped look. It's fine for a photo shoot, but for real life it just seems like too much effort and not very authentic.
|Thrown. Styled. Arranged.|
In our house, we have a couple of throws in the 3 rooms used for the activities I mention above. And, when someone is done with the throw, it's usually left in a heap! Occasionally, the person using it folds it. Most often, it's me going from room to room doing a quick fold first thing in the morning (while the coffee is brewing) and putting the various throws on the arms of chairs, the backs of sofas or stacked on an ottoman.
Now it's your turn ! Do you chop or toss your pillows and do you fold or throw your throws?
Note: It only took a few minutes to find pictures in my file labeled Living Rooms to illustrate the options for this friendly debate. Since there was clearly something I like about each of these rooms and/or the designer's work, I've purposefully left out the sources this time as I don't think how they style the pillows or throws is an indication as to whether it's good design or not. The first 2 images and the last one are from retail web-sites.
