I do love quirky and unusual things in my house and have recently discovered Cult Furniture. They have loads of cool and unusual things on their website, at prices to suit all budgets. I have just been sent a lovely pair of pillowcases to review, which are at the lower end of their price range and make an ideal gift or stocking filler.
The Love Story range of pillowcases consists of four different designs (full range here) – all of which feature a love story or connection between two stick-people characters – one character on each pillowcase. I was sent the From Me to You story, which I thought was absolutely lovely – a boy on one pillowcase and a girl on the other, throwing a paper aeroplane between each other, with a heart shaped flightpath. All of the designs are lovely, but this is my favourite, and because the pillowcases are white, they will match pretty much any bedding you might already own. Fortunately, the girl was on the left and the boy was on the right – I have no idea why it matters to me to sleep on the ‘correct’ side, but it does!
They arrived packaged in a nice cardboard giftbox, which means they would wrap up nicely and make a lovely present, maybe as a wedding present or anniversary gift. They are a poly-cotton mix and feel thick and good quality.
These are on offer at £2.95 per pair at the moment, a significant reduction on the full price of £18.95. They’re great value and make a great thing to treat yourself to or a brilliant gift. They are machine washable on cold and do wash nicely. They can be ironed, although not on the pattern, and should be hung up to dry rather than in the tumble dryer.
RRP: £18.95 – currently selling for £2.95 in clearance sale (as of April 2018).
