Why We Love Pillows (And You Should, Too!)

There are many things in life that we take for granted, and the pillow is probably one of them. After a long day of work, our pillow is always ready to welcome us home. The moment we climb into bed and our pillow cradles our head, we let out a sigh of relief. There are pillows for all our needs, whether you prefer a softer pillow to comfort your head or a firmer option for plenty of support, there are plenty of options to choose from. With 70 years experience of manufacturing infill bedding products, we absolutely love pillows, and you should, too!

Through Thick and Thin

The classic pillow is always there for us. Unlike that friend who arranged to grab a coffee with you three Saturday’s ago at 13:45 and dropped out at 13:40 (you honestly hold no grudges at all), the pillow always has your back. If you’ve ever felt alone, there’s a chance you’ve reached for that spare pillow. Studies show that 74% of women cuddle a pillow while alone, and 58% of men do the same. Simply put, pillows are comforting. You can wrap your arms around one, settle down with your favourite TV show and forget your worries. The pillow is the ultimate comforter.

Did Someone Say ‘Pillow Fight’?

If you ever had a sleepover when you were younger, then you definitely had a pillow fight. For some reason, there’s something quite satisfying about picking up a pillow and playfully whacking someone with it. In fact, pillow fights are that popular, there’s a day of the year dedicated to pillow fights.  The 8th International Pillow Fight Day is scheduled for 2nd April 2017 – get your pillows at the ready!

Simply Put, They Look Great

Of course, the pillow is also a decorative feature for many a room. If you’ve ever been to university, you’ll have met that student who fills their bed with pillows. Deep down, you were jealous. You craved those pillows. It didn’t matter that they had to throw pillow after pillow onto the floor to clamber into bed in the evening, they had the makings of a pillow fort.

The Pillow Fort

And finally, hands down, this is the main reason why we all love pillows. Just like the pillow fight, the pillow fort is a classic childhood memory for many. The pillow is the brick and mortar of any pillow fort worth its salt. Many try with cushions, however, without pillows, you simply can’t declare your fort a pillow fort. It’s a passionate subject and one which we do not take lightly. If you need reinforcements for your pillow fort, we’ve got plenty of pillows to choose from.
