I like teal blush.

I hate throws on beds, too. Between them, and the shark's teeth rows of little pillows at the head of the bed, there's a terribly stingy demilitarised zone, good only for perchinf, which is not what a bed is for.

What is a bed for pluCaChange?
Mine, especially in the winter is about being warm and comfortable.
And what is perchinf?

My cat used to sharpen his claws on our fabric sofa, just on the bottom corner. We were a bit worried about getting a leather sofa.

However, he was brilliant with the leather and has left it well alone.

Unfortunately he is now rather geriatric and cannot jump as nimbly as once he could. The sofa now has rather a lot of scratches. You have to look closely to see them, and I'm tempted by the stuff that the cobbler shop sells that is coloured leather-cream for restoring the colour.

I bought 3 today blush.
In my defence new sofa was delivered this afternoon and I wanted it to still look nice past tea time.

Oh, cross post.
But why would you perch on a bed with a throw on it confused
And I don't know what shark's teeth rows of little pillows are and what you mean by a stingy demilitarised zone either.

Shark's teeth because there are rows and rows of those little pillow, standing up more or less

And perching because you can't really loll if there's only space between the throw and the pillows. And with the little pillows' being so slippery, there's no support to be had.

Sorry, I'm getting a bit worked up!

I have one folded neatly over each sofa, I use them to keep warm in the evenings then I put them back neatly again each morning.

Well they're not ideal. But when you have a big hole in the arm of your sofa and you can't afford a new one, what's the solution? Doily type arm caps? Or the dreaded throw.

YANBU. Sometimes they fall down the back and come up covered in dust

my MIL kept giving me nice throws and after trying so hard for ages to make them look nice and dd keeping messing them up, i have finally got rid of them. now i actually just put 2 of dds blankets down to sit on on the leather settee and i think it makes it look really homey and cosy instead.
