From the Bauhaus to the Beamer, I’m a huge fan of German design. The folks over at German company Cloud7 have put their collective finger on what so many designers from their country have espoused: the importance of eye-catching, clean, functional design.

My husband and I cover our bed with a raggedy old “white” blanket when we leave the house so the pups can sleep on our bed without dirtying up our linens. While no one but my husband and I ever really sees the blanket, I feel like it’s our dirty little secret — figuratively and quite literally. The rest of my house is clean and pretty, I swear. But now! Crypton Fabrics introduces the Throver, a soft, stylish, durable throw blanket designed to be tossed on the bed, the couch, in the car — anywhere you need a barrier between your dog and your stuff.
If you remember, we fell in love with Naked Decor a while back and they’ve just added some new products to their catalog.
