Sometimes, pillow talk needs no words. At least not the ones you speak out loud. Perhaps that’s the view of artist Louise Bourgeois, who recently presented an installation at London’s Tate Modern, which featured a wood-paneled bedroom. The bed sported a red duvet and a pillowcase with the French words “Je t’aime.” The Tate then created saleable pillowcases based on the work, using beautiful cream cotton to embroider the red phrase where you lay your head. Another variety has “Je t’aime” screen-printed in repetition. In short: we aime it. [$40.37, Tate Modern]

Usually, when I write about a beauty product I know whether I am hailing it as the greatest thing since sliced bread or as a WTF? With the copper-infused pillow cover, well, I just don’t know. Apparently you can get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet by sleeping on a copper-threaded pillow.
According to the peeps at Cupron, who make the copper infused pillow (as well as copper infused gloves and eye masks), copper has been used since ancient Egyptian times for its “antimicrobial properties.” How this translates to less wrinkles, I have no idea, but Cupron’s own clinical trials have shown that people who use the pillow are more likely to see a reduction in them.
Bottom line: it might not work, but if you need a new pillow anyway you might as well try and be a beauty pioneer. [$37.99, Cupron Cosmetic Skin Appearance-Enhancing Satin Pillowcase,CupronSales.com] Keep reading »
At Calvin Klein Collection’s flagship store on Madison Avenue, the windows currently display pillowcases silk-screened with the names of famous duos such as Barack and Michelle, John and Yoko, Siegfried and Roy, and Thelma and Louise. Created by artist Jonathan Horowitz as part of his “Pillow Talk Cases,” the cases are actually for sale, with proceeds going to the Art Production Fund. While we’re all about donating to good causes, we think we might steal Horowitz’s idea for our own purposes and get pillowcases customized (or write on a set with a Sharpie) to correspond to our lives. Amelia’s will read, “Amelia” and “Lucca,” while mine will say, “Catherine” and “Catherine’s imaginary boyfriend.” [CasaSugar] Keep reading »
Men premature ejaculate because you are just too damn fine! Girl, you know it’s true! Well, that’s the concept behind Durex’s new limited edition Stamina Pillows. Originally given away with their Performa condoms that have a mild anesthetic to prevent dudes from beating you to the finish line, the cases feature some not-so-sexy pictorials — like an old bag lady with pigtails, a pearl necklace, and armpit hair licking her lips. It’s pretty creepy. But there’s also a redheaded guy with cabbage patch bangs sucking on a lollipop and we think he could be Michael K from Dlisted’s soul mate. Hey, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so, it might not work for everyone! However, we’re willing to try anything if it means we’ll get to party with our pants off for even just a few more minutes. Check out a few more stamina pillows, after the jump! [Popgive]
