Another Chicago collaboration is hitting the world of pillows. First manicure pro Spifster announced her "Pillow Fight" collection with Mélange Clothier + Interior Wear, and now high-end made-to-order furniture company Interior Define has teamed up with men's clothing line Stock Mfg Co. to sell locally-made pillows for the discerning gentleman.
Tim Tierney of Stock Mfg Co and Rob Royer of Interior Define selected five Japanese-sourced men's shirting fabrics in an assortment of patterns. Each 18-inch pillow will come with a Interior Define / Stock Mfg. Co. down insert. The collection will be available online in a couple weeks. In the meantime, a limited number of pillows are available now at Interior Define's Wicker Park showroom (2027 W. North Avenue).—Lani Nguyen
