She and I went through my batch (I've loved collecting different scarves over the years) and settled on this green, nautical-inspired Hermes scarf (http://www.hermes.com/) which now has a home on my living room floor.
I like to use it for extra seating if I have a few friends over or as a makeshift table for cocktails or tea.
The Hermes scarf or any kind of scarf really can wear many hats! I've seen people frame their scarf and hang as a decorative piece of wall art and also tie as a purse. I've used mine for head wraps and table runners. I've tied one into a 'scarf-shirt' and wore it under a suit. I also tied one of my faves as a bright, patterned 'cumberbund' when wearing all black.
