The other nite, woozy from way too much sake, we crashed at a friend's house. Of course, when we woke up in the morning, we did one of those things only a dedicated AT blogger can do. We asked about the pillows. Silky, gusseted, extra long, firm but not hard, we were pretty sure they were one of those pricey pillows bought at a high end store (this particular friend has a knack for stepping into a store just as the sale signs go up). We did not expect the answer to be Ikea.
We kid you not. Part of Ikea's higher end lines, the Gosa Nava / Karna are composed of two parts. The soft 90% goose down exterior swaddles a weight and temperature-sensitive foam core. And, the feathers and down are never taken from living birds. We're a side sleeper so this is our pick. It also comes in a back sleeper version.
