The secret to turning your sad pillows into happy pillows.

According to us, that is.

When you have worked with hotels as long as we have, there’s one thing we can honestly say when it comes to bedding: it’s all about the pillows!

Many of our customers share with us guest feedback and pillows are something that come up regularly. From the density, thickness, lumpiness, natural vs. feather…you name it, we’ve heard it. For sleeping, we highly recommend the Boutique Silk Pillow. It’s medium to firm fill is perfect for every sleep style and includes Smartfil® Clusters fibres, blended with pure silk. Not only that, but they have a 100% cotton fire retardant cover and are washable at 60°C.

But what about when using pillows for presentation? The pillow will need to firm and well formed to stand potentially for long periods, but still luxurious and nonfunctional in the even that guests want to use this particular pillow to sleep on. With this in mind we would recommend the Spundown Firm Pillow.

Not only that, but here on some tips on how to position your happy pillows. Enjoy!

Step 1. Karate chop the middle

The purpose of this technique is to make it easier to fit the pillow into the sham by folding it in half first. Then, once it unfolds inside of the pillowcase, it fits like a glove.

 

Step 2. Flatten agressively

Next, press all of the air out of the pillow before standing it up. To do this, put your hands in the middle, then slowly push both them out in opposite directions repeatedly until your pillow is as flat as a board and about half as thick as before you started.

Step 3. Position with care

Once you’re done, grab the top two corners of your pillowcase and stand the pillow up next to your bed frame — do not (I repeat, do not) lean it against the headboard. If you’ve successfully made a “happy” pillow it should stand tall and proud on its own. Tah-dah!
