What's with all the pillows?
« on: January 27, 2008, 06:44:51 AM »
I've seen this a number of times. On their beds, women have an arrangement of like 20 pillows. What's the point of this?

I have 6 pillows and use 4 to sleep.  If we are at a hotel and there are only 4 pillows I will sleep w/3 and my husband will use one.  If we are at a hotel w/only 2 pillows I will use 1 and a rolled up towel.

I don't have decorative pillows.  I don't even want to make they bed let alone put all those fru fru pillows back on.

  I have 4 pillows and a body pillow.  I use 2 pillows for my head and the body pillow.  I have a king size bed so the other 2 pillows may or may not be being used

All those pillows can really add up. 

A while ago I was shopping with an epicure friend of mine and came across an $800 pillow!  I have to admit, it felt absolutely sumptuous!  :P

When I asked the clerk if it was a typo she said no.  She went on to say that she had a similar pillow but it was one grade below.  The one she had was $400 and she only had it because of her employee discount which made it $200. She said she slept on it every night and that it was her prized possession!  No one else is ever allowed to touch it.  She told me her boyfriend tried to touch it once and she warned him not to do so... when he touched it anyway, she kicked him out!  ha ha ha ha ha


Note, when you have an $800 pillow, you don't put it in an $8 pillow case--you put it in an $80 pillow case.  And no one buys just one pillow; they are purchased in pairs: 2, 4, 6, etc.  Now, throw in a goose down comforter, a duvet cover, fitted & flat sheets, throw pillows, and an upscale mattress and those ritzy display beds you see all tricked out... can easily approach $10,000.  :o

$800?  Does it stop or minimize snoring?

No.  But having felt that pillow, I can honestly tell you that I wanted one (or two).  I have never felt anything like it before or since.  :)

Alas, no.  I suppose I could look for it the next time I am in that store... and report back.

What is the most you would pay for a pillow?

Have you ever slept on a $10,000 bed?

Does the store have a website?




What is the most you would pay or a pillow?

It would depend on the pillow and how much I loved it.  If it cured snoring I would pay one million dollars!

Not that I'm aware of

I'm all for it. I gotta have a reat sleeping enviroment and I have to be comfortable. The more pillows and blankets, the marrier. Bay is absolutely right though, bedding can get very costly.

This is how the other half lives.  :D

It's not nuts if you make millions on Wall Street (remember the $10,000 shower curtain?) or take home $20 million a picture.  This is probably what Oprah, Julia Roberts, or Will Smith sleep on.

It's very easy to piss away tons of money on stuff like this (non performing assets).  Remember all the millions Mike Tyson made from boxing?  The guy is now broke... where did all his money go?  Aides, bills, and frills (like expensive bedding) can easily drain millions...  :'(

Your absolutely right there, Bay. I googled some bedding up for shits and giggles and some of the price tags that I saw were completely out of this world. A bed with all the bedding, pillows, etc could cost anywhere in the neighbourhood of 30 grand when completed.
