Keep An Eye Out For: Taxi Pillows

Keep An Eye Out For: Taxi Pillows

We first learned about the "taxi pillow" after visiting Carrie's home for her Apartment Therapy House Tour. The pillow called out to us because of its bright red, luminescent quality (and the fact that it was unique and round). Carrie gave us a little backstory on this fun find and we also rounded up a few for inspiration.

Apparently, all the taxis in Thailand have one of these pillows in their car. Carrie tells us that over there, taxis are like traveling temples (decorated further with Buddha's, Thai script written by a monk--and the pillows round out the enclosed sanctuary of the car). The sentiments act as a sign of good luck and safe travels. You can read more about these beautiful pillows here from a blog about taxi drivers of Bangkok. Bright and fun, these round pillows would bring a bit of color and life into any room in the house.
