I Want This

Pia Wallen Cross blanket…in Camel!


Oh, hello there. Aren’t you beautiful?

My love of Pia Wallén’s Cross/Crux blankets runs deep, and it has not lessened at all over the years. Every time a new color is introduced, I want it. I’d love to have a multicolored stack of them in my house! As it is, though, I only own it in black (including a duplicate backup, thanks to that possibly-accidental sale at UO last year), because how often can a person shell out that kind of cash for a blanket they don’t need?


This popped up on Pia Wallén’s Instagram today, though, and…oh my. CAMEL? Give it to me. There’s something about camel, you know? It’s richer than beige, happier than brown, and it really takes the edge off of those sharp black and brights I’m so fond of. A camel blanket paired with charcoal sofa and bright cushions? Oh yeah!

p.s. It would be fun to do an update on this Crux-spotting post I wrote in 2009. Do you have a Crux or Cross blanket in your home? Share a link in the comments or email a photo to me—I’ll do a roundup!

    I love these blankets so so much. I purchased the small one as a “baby blanket” for my son, but really I just knew that I would probably never be able to justify buying up the big one and had to settle for the tiny version.

    I don’t have a Pia Wallen blanket, I do have a Rietveld chair (Steltman chair) in oak. I can send you a picture of that? Have a wonderful day!
