Where to buy decent pillows??

Post by gordie » Sat, 28 Oct 2006 12:51 pm

Looking for decent pillows. I find the pillows in S.E.Asia to be to high and bulky. Does anyone know where to buy flatter, softer pillows in Singapore?

Ikea has a fairly decent range, all flagged with soft-hard/high-low indicators.

I believe most of the local big department stores have pillow for sales in their Household/Appliances department.

Mustafa is not CHEAP by the "local standards". Maybe they have to cover their costs as they are open 24hrs. For those of us who only shop in the sane hour of the day, any neigbourhood departmental (Metro, Seiyu etc) or the major one along the Orchard Road stretch should have plenty for us to choose.

I find Robinsons department store at either Centerpoint or Raffles City to have a broad and excellent range of pillows, ranging from 17S$ to over 250 S$.
Time will come....

Hi, Paragon Aussino is good. You can also search in Takashimaya household department, i like the "bedding fit for king" pillow (King size pillow) It costs from $188 to $388. Very good!

The best pillows are the ones hotels sell, for alternatives you can try Takashimaya, and Robinsons, I find these 2 outlets have a better range.

I buy the Ikea ones - like jpatokal says, they do different grades of softness. I get the squishy soft ones and from what I remember they are priced accordingly. Mine were only around $7

Hi...

There's this person called John, who developed customized pillow according to individual's height and width of your shoulders. I had sleeping problems previously also even after trying out many different types and form of pillows. Finally, I settle on my customized one and been sleeping well for past 2 years!

Let me know if you know the contact. Email whiz.design@gmail.com.

Cheers....!!

Good things meant to be shared,
Garyp

You can ask the hotel if they do sell their pillows. I've bought mine from an overseas hotel and I've no regrets. Some hotels do have a retail for their bedlinen items.

Otherwise you can visit http://www.pacificpillows.com/ they sell most pillows from top hotels.
