Pillow Bar Trunk Show and ‘spring prep’ event – April 21st!


Join us for a Pillow Bar trunk show the weekend of April 21. We had so much fun in September, we had to do it again!

This time, we’ll be featuring Mother’s Day, graduation and bridal gift ideas – to be personalized with TLC in time for your occasion.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show 4/21 at The Linen Tree


Meet Merrimac Dillon.
Merrimac founded The Pillow Bar in 2008. While seeking to help her husband recover from debilitating back surgery, she couldn’t find a pillow worth its weight. So, she spent more than a year working with chiropractors and surgeons, seeking to create the perfect pillow.

Merrimac Dillon




The name ‘The Pillow Bar’ refers literally to a bar. Merrimac invented a patent-pending, mechanized bar that is used to efficiently fill pillows according to custom specs. Pillows are filled according to a customer’s unique size, shape, and sleep preferences.
Nobody does what The Pillow Bar does.
From boomerang shaped "side sleeper" pillows to ribbon wrapped travel pillows, The Pillow Bar offers something for everyone. Each pillow features fine Hungarian down (or down alternative) as well as an embedded lavender sachet. Every item – including sleepwear, towels, and more – comes standard with a custom embroidered message and/or monogram.

Merrimac will be at our store all day on Saturday, April 21st, possibly the 22nd as well. Meet with Merrimac and get custom-fitted for your own Pillow Bar pillow, in person. To ensure one on one time with her, we are currently taking appointments.



Spring into Sferra


Sferra has unveiled several new collections for Spring ’18 that are now available for order. Here are some notable additions that we feel fill a void:


A technique called fil coupé – popular amongst the finest of clothiers – gives this lightweight yarn-dyed cotton jacquard a texture that looks as delicate as embroidery. Ethereal duvet covers and shams are available in your choice of muted, nature-inspired neutrals; choose from Sky and Stone. Sky is pictured.



Intreccio results from Sferra’s partnership with Italy born design icon Alessandra Branca. A twist on a classic basket weave pattern and Alessandra’s trademark Branca stripe adds a special touch to what would otherwise be a more conventional bedding style. The fabric is a crisp cotton percale and the collection includes a duvet cover, flat sheet, dec pillow, pillowcases and pillow shams.



Embellished arabesque scrollwork recalls the rhythmic tendril first seen in Renaissance art. Somina features an opulent high thread count Egyptian Cotton sateen jacquard, boasting a remarkable feel and an almost mirror-like sheen. Similar in style to SDH’s popular Legna Seville, it makes a good choice for our customers who have grown to love SDH Legna Seville but would prefer a more durable cotton sheet.



Sferra’s Chianni pillow was first introduced in 2017 as a white on navy maritime inspired pillow. Now, three new lighter color choices give Chianni a new look.

Contrary to appearance, Chianni’s four stripe pattern draws its inspiration not so much from Pratesi’s classic 3-line embroidery, but from a maritime signal flag. The pillow adds a smart-looking accent to keep any bed looking slightly shipshape.



Nope, it’s not another throw. It’s a scarf! A real scarf, not a bed scarf. Bold color blocking in contrasting halves give casual wit and visual weight to this gossamer scarf, an ultra-light weave of cotton, linen, wool and silk.

Pillow Bar Trunk Show 9/16 at The Linen Tree


The Dallas Morning News once said that these pillows were "really, really amazing." A Wall Street Journal columnist once used the word narcotic. Caroline Kennedy has dubbed The Pillow Bar to be "the Rolls Royce of pillows" and most recently, The Pillow Bar was an addition to the coveted ‘O’ list.

These are unique pillows, custom made for each and every customer according to their size and sleep habits. They are finished with a custom monogram or message, making them particularly well suited as a gift.

The Linen Tree is proud to welcome Pillow Bar inventor (and owner) Merrimac Dillon to our store for a trunk show on Saturday, September 16th. In addition to sampling the entire line of pillows and sleep accessories, our customers will have the unique opportunity to meet with Merrimac one on one and to be personally fitted with their own custom pillows and gifts.

There will be door prizes, giveaways and more on the 16th, but Merrimac will be available for individual appointments all weekend. To book your appointment, get in touch with Kendra or Mark!

(To learn more about Merrimac and the Pillow Bar story, we recommend reading this VoyageDallas interview. You may also view the line of pillows on our website.)
