Pillow Talk: Part One

In our April 2010 magazine issue (on sale now!), I produced a story on the latest and greatest pillows. In the process, I discovered that there are a ridiculous amount of fantastic pillows out there for living room sofas and chairs, bedrooms and more! So, I thought it would be fun to share ten more of my faves online. Here are the first five… stay tuned for my next blog on March 30th for my other picks.

This is from the new Henny collection at Ikea — at $13 including the insert, it’s a steal!

This one is designed by textile designer Fred Shand, and available through Anthropologie. I love the eclectic choice of fabrics used in this pillow.

These beauties from Lulu DK feature the classic lattice pattern (Chant) and are available in a whole selection of colours.
