OMG Pillow from Alexandra Ferguson
I am fascinated by the study of languages and I have always wanted to know how they evolve in time, getting new different features and changing as if they were a living organism. What I have noticed about languages today is the fact that there is a general tendency to shorten words and messages and use easier symbols for transmitting a message. Apart from the fact that English seems to have become a universal language, it also generated short messages that are understood by young people from all over the world. For example “LOL” in “computer talk” means “laughing out loud” and “OMG” comes from “Oh, my God!”, meaning great surprise.
Any way, the young and creative designer Alexandra Ferguson had this crazy idea that kids and teenagers will just love seeing these messages on their bedroom pillows, so she created the “Modern lexicon ” pillows. This pillow is made of recycled bottles felt and is filled with recycled polyester. It closes nicely with a zip and this shows great, as you can’t see the spot where the zip merges the felt. The pillow is available in many colour combinations and you can choose it in order to match it with the colour of your sofa. Its dimensions are 14” x 18” and you can now purchase it for $79 directly on the designer’s web site.
