The poster child of the well-known Japanese aesthetic of off-white linen, matcha, and loose cotton; you can get it all at Muji. But perhaps one thing that people would never expect to get from them is the essentials one would need in the bedroom. You can find large heavy scale furniture in the likes of bed frames, mattresses and day beds, but the quiet underdog of the Japanese company is their pillows; a thing often neglected and looked over.
Fortunately, Muji has condensed their options, making it easy for people to make their choices. So here are the top pillow choices we have curated just for you!
Using a high percentage of waterfowl feathers, this pillow ensures a peaceful night as you’ll be placing your head on the lightest, softest surface that you can imagine, as not only is the filling light, the outer shell of the pillow is made out of 100% organic cotton. In keeping with the theme, any excess feathers used in the process of creating this pillow will be used in other products, including down jackets, cushions, etc, so you can sleep without worrying about the wastage that down feather pillows often cause!
If you’re looking for a pillow that ensures long use and a minimal possibility of buildup in fungus and/or bacteria, then this is the pillow for you. The filling used in this pillow is urethane, which is a type of foam that is famous for being superbly comfortable yet gives the support that your head needs when sleeping. Not only that but because of its habit of going back to its natural form, it is also cost-effective as you would be able to use it for a long period of time.
A herbaceous plant that is very common in Japanese culture, it is no wonder that this pillow was created, as it somehow brings one closer to nature with its fibrous texture and nostalgic scent. In accordance with this, the pillow’s inner padding is made out of urethane foam, giving it the comfort one deserves. So with this one, you get the benefit of the smell as well as the comfort.
For sleep that can double as a massage, a body pillow is what you need in your day-to-day life. This option from Muji gives relief to the pressure points of your body, as well as provides support to your arms and legs as it lends a hand that your mattress could never. On top of that, it is made out of 100% organic cotton that you can remove and wash, making it usable for a lengthy amount of time.
Now that you’ve seen all the different pillows Muji has to offer, here is another that you can ponder on as well:
Latex is the holy grail of materials for mattresses or pillows because of its medium-firm texture. The Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow gives you the best of both worlds and comes with a whole lot more much-needed features such as breathability, moldability and temperature regulation.
This hypoallergenic pillow not only keeps allergy-inducing pests away but also comes through with its durability so you can sleep safe and sound without worrying about your pillow sagging or losing its shape anytime soon. Besides cradling your head and shoulders, the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow can also be placed behind your back or in between your legs to alleviate the pressure points on these sensitive areas. This exceptional pillow is just as effective as a pain-relieving accessory as it is the perfect cuddle buddy.
