Bed rest pillows (also known as "Husband Pillows"), which provide firm, structured support for the back and arms, will turn any bed into a sanctuary, making it easy to read, eat, drink coffee, or even work in bed. But bed rest pillows, beloved by grandmothers everywhere, were in direct need of a massive style update. The famously chic Hillary Thomas reinvented the useful but dowdy bolster pillow into a fabulous essential for the bed and renamed it the "Boyfriend Pillow." This linen version is finished with contrast cording and knot embroidery. For designer Hillary Thomas, comfort and style should complement each other as beautifully as quirky flea-market finds can accentuate fine antiques. These gorgeously detailed, lavishly comfortable pillows are a case in point.
