My Suite Stuff Review

About 2 years ago, I came across My Suite Stuff, a company that makes handmade pillows, basically for nerds/designers.

I was hooked on their Creative Sleep collection; pillows that looked like the Adobe CS3 icons. I wanted them. Being the impulsive buyer that I am, I ordered the Illustrator and InDesign pillows. Look how much fun this promo image is!



I eagerly awaited my pillows (the site said about 6-9 weeks), so I expected them to come around Christmas (I ordered them in October). Well, they didn't end up coming until March, which I was peeved about, but now that I've had them, I think they are so worth it!




I get lots of comments on them; definitely a conversation piece. Do you have a conversation piece where you live?

  1. I am totally hooked on the concept of personalized pillows ... just haven't found the "right" one to commit too yet!

    Yike ... a production time of over 5 (almost 6) months is crazy but they sure look like they were worth the wait!

  2. how cute! i love the bright colors too, haha.. not sure if i'd be patient enough to wait so long for them as you were!

    in our apartment, we have a series of paintings about faith done by one of my roommates' boyfriend that gets a lot of comments and questions.. it's a pretty awesome conversation piece!
