“I recommend our bamboo sheets to everyone I meet,” she assures me. “Every Pillow Talk employee swears by them.” After a long day spent in a bustling workplace, and then at home surrounded by crazy kids, for Jen, there’s no better feeling than climbing into bed.
“It’s where I feel most at peace,” she explains, absentmindedly fiddling with the top sheet on her lap, the allure of the silky soft bamboo proving too strong.
As a devoted mum and passionate designer, bedtime is the only time she sets aside just for her; it’s a rare time of unimpeded relaxation. But creating her perfect sleep sanctuary consists of more than just sheets. Jen’s top tip? Don’t sleep on your display pillows! Keep a second set just for sleeping.
After nearly a decade with the company, Jen sees her colleagues more like an extended family. “I’ve been here for so long, I kind of feel like a part of the furniture,” she laughs. “Pillow Talk has been a part of all my big milestones – I’ve gotten married, bought a house, and had my kids, all while working here.”
Now in the process of transitioning into her exciting new role as a textile designer, Jen is more appreciative than ever of her journey. “I had to become a graphic designer to fully understand the technicalities of design. I’ve come full circle and I’m feeling so fulfilled,” she says with her signature smile.
