A throw is an easy way to soften and add warmth to a space. Cashmere or wool or a cotton blend. Keep it soft and simple or textural and colorful. You can fold it in a chair, or drape it over the edge of a sofa. I recommend checking the piece to make sure it's pleasant to the touch. It should usable on a cold night!
Coffee table books - large, heavy, filled with rich and interesting pictures. These books are beautiful stacked on a table and interesting reads. They can give a waiting guest a comfortable way to pass the time while waiting on their host. Books on designers, art and fashion are common favorites, but look for books on subjects that interest you.
