The Pillow Bar

Sleep Happy goes to The Pillow Bar

Pillow Bar Studio TourAs a sleep consultant for infants and young children, I am always in search of tools that her adults learn how to sleep again.  I get numerous requests to help adults sleep better.  When I first heard about The Pillow Bar in January on Good Morning Texas and was immediately interested in the concept…a personalized pillow made right before your eyes!

I started small, I ordered the Sweet Dreams Hot and Cold Sleep mask for my husband.  He’s not the best sleeper.  He put on the lavender mask the first night and has not slept without it since January 9th when it arrived.  He even hand washed it the other day.  He LOVES it!  It is soft and it blocks the light.  I could not believe it.  Fast forward to March and I decided to order 2 more.  All the while I was curious about the pillows.  I wasn’t sure I was ready to make the investment.  Which is silly.  Do you know how much time we spend sleeping in our lifetime?  We sleep for 1/3 of our life!

I submitted my eye mask order online and almost immediately received a call from Peggy McCormick inviting me to visit their studio in the Dallas Design District.  Heck yeah!  Local business, personalized service, creator of a tool that helps adults get a dreamy night sleep …fire up, I am so excited.  I can’t wait to learn what these pillows are all about.

Upon arrival, Peggy greeted me and I met the founder Merrimac Dillon.  I learned all about the story behind the pillow which grew out of wanting her own husband to get better sleep after back surgery.  Merrimac spent years searching for the perfect pillow and when she couldn’t find one on the market she went about developing one.

Y’all these pillows are the BOMB!  Hand filled, personalized with the research to back up the innovation.

Pillow Bar Down

 The Pillow Bar pillows are personalized because they are created to support you size and the position you sleep in.  Each pillow is HAND filled for medium, firm, or ____ depending on your size (the space between your head and the mattress.  The pillow is designed to fill in the gap in order to promote proper neck and spine alignment.  Pillows come in different sizes and shapes.  For instance, are you a side sleeper?  Does your shoulder ache in the morning?  Merrimac created the Dr. Mary Side Sleeper just for you!  Whoopi Goldberg swears by it.  And now my husband now swears by it!

Pillows come in down or down alternative, not feather.  Down is a natural product.  Their are no quills in the down used in The Pillow Bar pillows.  Therefore, no feather will come out of your pillow and poke you in the night.  These pillows are made in a clean warehouse in Dallas, not in storage rooms or overseas where production lines are dirty.  I watched the clean down run through a pharmacists grade anti static tube to enter the chamber where dust in removed.  Then I watched as Merrimac filled my very own pillow.  She would stop the machine to test the density of the pillow until it was filled enough to feel firm.

After filling the pillow, she took the washable cover and monogrammed it to my specifications.  Lavender sachets are included in every pillow.  Lavender promotes relaxation.

I have slept on my Pillow Bar standard side sleeper pillow every night since the my studio tour.   I ordered my tall insomniac husband the Dr. Mary Side Sleeper Pillow and had it personalized just for him in his favorite color along with a sweet saying ‘Always by my side.”  He loves it and reports he moves less in his sleep and wakes up feeling refreshed.  He continues to sleep with the mask.  I ordered my mom who suffers from sinus allergy headaches often the Hot and Cold Eyemask for Mother’s Day.

Invest in your sleep!  I highly recommend these pillows to help you get better sleep.  Contact me today for pricing and ordering information.

    1. The studio is located in the design district in Dallas but is not open to the public. You may be able to see their products in person at Neiman Marcus. I have emailed the designer to find out.

      1. I was wrong, just received this message from The Pillow Bar. “The only place they can go in Dallas to see our pillows is The Linen Boutique on Lovers Lane in Inwood Village.”
