The Faux

The Oprah Daily staff did, and here's why they love Dennis Basso's new faux-fur find.

Finding the perfect throw blanket is no simple feat. For one, it needs to be extra soft. You want that ahh moment the instant you grab it to unwind on the sofa with a good read or a Netflix binge. Then it has to be aesthetically pleasing enough to even grace the coveted corner of your couch. And let's not forget warmth. Feeling nice and toasty is a must. Good news: We we found just the blanket. Dennis Basso's Hotel du Cobb Luxury Ruched Faux-Fur Throw hits all those notes and more.

Designer Dennis Basso is known for his plush coats, having mastered the art of fashioning the finest faux fur. He brings all that know-how to this blanket. "My inspiration was the great luxury hotels of the world," explains Basso. "The ruching gives the throw depth and the most luxurious feel." And that's just one side. The other has a micro sheared faux mink, so it's cuddly no matter which side you touch. And in between those lush layers is a cozy fill that keeps you warm.

At 50"x 70", it comes in prints (ivory lynx, grey chinchilla, café chinchilla, and cheetah) plus solids (ivory, peacock, and merlot) to go with any decor in any room of the house, whether it's draped across a bed or your favorite chair, or stationed in your guest room for visitors to enjoy. Since they’re affordable, the more the merrier, and they also make a great gift. We venture to guess that there's no one on your list who wouldn't want a blanket that feels like a warm hug, and Oprah Daily staffers agree. Here's what they had to say.
