Battle of the Designer Throws

It's no surprise that fans of clothes and accessories from elite fashion houses often embrace the home products branded in the designer's signature prints with an equal enthusiasm.

Draping a Burberry throw over a library chaise a la Brian Gluckstein or using an Hermes blanket as a coverlet in your master bedroom like Stephen Schubel is just another way for consumer's to display their style-savvy and showcase their good taste (and good fortune!)

Do you find blatant branding obnoxious, or do you think all is fair when it comes to how you want to spend your own money in your own home?

The missioni one is stunner - it's got nice colors and style! The hermes one makes no sense to me - I don't understnd black and white checkers with H's on it...too blatant and not stylish enough for me!

Three words: Too. Much. Logo.

I'm lucky because my mom makes afghans and seriously? They are way better than any of those throws. Although I do love that Missoni one!

I like a bit of logo, and I like Brian G, but it's a bit over the top...I'd rather go more subtle with a Burberry teapot and cup
sitting on a tray somewhere....
