BED11: My Thoughts on Pillows

You see these pillows?

Behind the dog being pensive.

Well, those pillows are the pillows I bought specifically to show off our bedroom while we were showing our townhouse for sale. There are four wool fabric covered ones, one microsuede one, and one cotton one.

Every morning we would plop the pillows in a particular arrangement on our bed, and every night we would dutifully take them off and stack them up somewhere else.

I don’t get why people do this, why they have decorative pillows on their beds. Do they really have that many people trolloping through their bedroom that decorative pillows make sense? I mean, I get it for the living room. We have a few throw pillows on our couch. They are used for comfort. When someone is sitting on our couch, they will often arrange the pillows behind or beside them in a way that makes them more comfortable.

But I don’t really get the bedroom decorative pillows, unless your house is a) a show home b) for sale and also sort of a show home, or c) a place in which the owner makes their living if you know what I am saying.

The pillows in the above picture are now in garbage bags in my craft / storage room. I have no idea what I will do with them. Would you like some pillows for your boudoir?

  1. I’d buy em off you! Although, getting them here might be a pain.
    We do the same but our thoughts are that we like a nice pretty bed to see at night. It’s a weird thing but yeah it’s a silly thing! I need some pillows for our living room badly, where did you buy them?

  2. Can’t stop laughing at the dog being pensive.

    I was at Winners one time and picked up a pillow because it was next to the toy isle – that bugger was $50! For a decorative pillow! Um.No.

  3. We should talk. Let me know how much you’d want for them. We’re trying to fill Anya’s playroom with tonnes of pillows!
