In case you wanted to buy a Zebra pillow to match your inflatable Zebra, I found one for you.

Who doesn’t love to get a good sleep? It’s unlikely that anyone would choose to have an evening of tossing and turning over a calm sleep when you wake up feeling really well-rested. But did you know that, according to Statistics Canada, an estimated 3.3 million Canadians – or 1 in 7 people across the country – have expressed difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
I love to sleep – especially on the weekend when I don’t set my alarm clock. When I’m at a great hotel, I love to get cozy under the covers and test out every pillow.
Which brings me to the focus of today’s post – pillows. The Octaspring pillow collection, to be precise.
These aren’t just any pillows, people.
Okay, from the above photo, the Octaspring pillows may not look that¬†much different from the pillows you currently have on your bed. But look how they’re made…
Those are memory foam Octapillow springs which are designed to “cradle the head in blissful comfort” in a cool and airy fashion. This pillow looks like it was designed to set you up for some great dreaming.
So how did this pillow come to be? Let me share some info about its history. Octaspring comes from Dormeo, a Belgium bedding brand created by Willy Poppe. Dormeo – what a great name, right? Dormeo is the Latin word for sleep.¬†It is very similar to dormir (French), dormire (Italian), and¬†dormir (Spanish), which are all infinitive verbs meaning¬†to sleep. Okay, getting back to the point here…
Dormeo, available in more than 30 countries around the world, introduced Octaspring in Europe just a few years ago and is now coming to Canada through an exclusive partnership with Sleep Country Canada (insert catchy jingle – you’re singing it in your head right along with me, right?) (Dormez-Vous in Quebec). The Octaspring will be making its appearance in more than 150 Sleep Country stores across Canada. You can read more about Octaspring’s history here.
To celebrate the introduction of Octaspring in the Canadian marketplace, Octaspring is currently running a great¬†contest which includes me (and some other bloggers) as guest judges! Hooray!
