Love It or Hate It? Yellow Throw

I spotted this yellow throw in the portfolio of Dutch designer Piet Boon and I'm pretty intrigued by it. Intrigued and undecided. It's definitely eye-catching and it gives this pared down room some oomph, but I can't imagine that it actually functions as a blanket, with holes that big. It also reminds me a bit of those orange plastic barricades you see around construction sites.Source

I love it. It looks like a yummy waffle; makes me think of breakfast in bed.

It definitely adds "oomph." Maybe in another color.

i really like it actually. i'm not usually a fan of throws like that - but i think that it's enough of a pop of color without being too much in that pale pallated room.

I agree -- I think that yellow throw is a poor choice. The color is nasty, and the style is weak. Also, speaking of style, the chair is mismatched with the rest of the room (style wise, the chair is speaking a different language). As much as I dislike that throw and chair, I do appreciate the rest of the room. Nice architectural elements -- I like the sloped window and fireplace. I like the headboard, too.

I don't know, the material looks on the picture like a fish net. I don't really like it.

I love the color, but as far as function it gets an F+.

I like the idea of the Yellow throw - just not that one!

Reminds me of a fishermen's net. I don't like it.

I kinda like it: it seems like it would be a nice and light for a summer nap or just the right layering to keep you a tad protected while you rest. I kinda like the fact that it resembles a construction barrier in the photo, though perhaps in real life it looks a bit more homey. I like the yellow splash of color in this room.

The color's a nice idea! but I agree with all of you, the huge holes are not doing it for me.

Bleeh! Not only is it fugly, but practically you would constantly be getting your foot caught in it.

I wasn't bothered by it until you pointed out that it reminds you of the construction barriers. That is spot on!
