Play around with the edges of the blanket and create ripples in the top layer of the blanket to achieve the desired look.
2. For the Monica in you

For a more structured look, try this “orderly” approach! Fold the throw blanket in thirds lengthwise, then drape over the back of the couch so the bottom falls at the base of the cushion. This elegant and sophisticated aesthetic requires precision, so make sure your folds are even and that you tuck in the throw behind your couch cushion to keep it securely in place. For this look to stay clean and chic, don’t overcrowd your couch with too many cushions.

You can fold any throw with fringes or tassels, so the front is shorter than the back. Then you can see all of the beautiful details!
This is another styling throw on sofa option for the folded look, but less formal – you can make this style more casual by folding your throw lengthwise into thirds and then halve it in the other direction. Create an even more relaxed look by bunching up or sprawling out the throw a bit so that it’s a little uneven.
4. Back of the Sofa
