The Pillow Bar recently announced its 10th Anniversary of manufacturing custom, “luxury with a purpose” pillows and other bedroom comforts that change the way people sleep.
After supporting her husband through an impactful medical experience, sleep and pillows became a top priority for Merrimac Dillon, founder of The Pillow Bar. Dillon discovered that the best pillows matched each person’s unique sleep style (front, back or side) and height and age, but found that there wasn’t a company offering the level of pillow customization she needed. In 2009, she invented the patented “The Pillow Bar” machine in the garage of her Dallas home to circulate and fill each pillow with custom amounts of indulgent, fluffy down. Ensuring proper head and spine alignment, The Pillow Bar’s special machine was developed to create the perfect pillow for each individual.
Ten years later, every pillow is still made one-at-a-time in Dallas, Texas to match each customer’s unique sleep style, height and age. Dillon’s company has grown from a team of one to a team of nine and she hopes to continue to grow in the next 10 years. Over the past decade,The Pillow Bar has expanded its line of pillows to include down alternative pillows that are filled with a combed polyester fiber fill and other luxury bedroom and home items including towels, sheets, bathrobes, nightshirts, mattress pads, duvets and even dog beds.
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary, The Pillow Bar has pledged to support 10 local charities this year, and in the future. The charities include The Family Place, Stray Dog, Crystal Charity Ball, Junior League of Dallas, American Heart Association, Cattle Barron’s Ball, Camp John Mark, Equest, Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and North Texas Arthritis Foundation. Through consistent support, they hope to better the Dallas community.
The Pillow Bar has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine’s Favorite Things, The Wall Street Journal, American Way, Good Morning Texas, The Dallas Morning News, and D Magazine and was recently named the “Rolls-Royce of pillows” on The View by O, The Oprah Magazine’s Creative Director, Adam Glassman.
Pillows and other products from The Pillow Bar are available at over 300 boutique retail stores across the United States and online at www.thepillowbar.com. The Pillow Bar pillows can also be found in many luxury resorts including the Granduca in Austin and The Baccarat Hotel in New York.
About The Pillow Bar: The story of The Pillow Bar is personal. In 2009, after her husband’s life-changing medical experience, Merrimac Dillon embarked on a mission to create the best pillows. After a year of research and sleep tests with Chiropractors and Neurosurgeons, Dillon found that pillows need to match each person’s physical size and sleep style. The Pillow Bar was invented to solve each customer’s sleep problems.
The Pillow Bar offers custom sleeping pillows filled with European white down or a down alternative material. They have created and patented a unique machine that fills each pillow to best fit the specific customer based on sleep style, frame size and age. The pillows are covered in the finest natural cotton and can be embroidered with a custom monogram or saying.
The Pillow Bar has expanded its offerings to include other USA made luxuries for the bedroom and bath including towels, sheets, bathrobes, nightshirts, mattress pads and duvets and pillows and gifts for travel.
