I am a Fashion Designer and came out with a home line which consists of duvets covers which can be used as duvet covers, throws, bedspreads, blankets for the couch or the bed. Ask me about the latest collection and how you can incorporate the collection in your home, and in your lifestyle.  Ask me about fabric, colors and price points.  I will be happy to answer questions you might have.
