At the risk of reviving the great Decorative Pillow Debate of '19:
Does anyone else arrive to do their turnover and find the decorative throw pillows in the bed, freshly slept on? I do, about once a month.
Do guests not realize throw pillows are decorative, or do they find standard pillows uncomfortable? I launder mine after I find them in the bed, but guests are taking a mighty leap of faith that I do so. (Mine don’t have zip-off covers so they are a pain to wash–I know, I know, I should replace them with ones that do.)
This happens often enough that I’d like to know what guests are trying to accomplish so I can provide something more practical, sanitary, and easy to wash. For sleeping, I currently have a pair of soft and pair of firm pillows on the bed, and extra medium pillows in the closet in case Goldilocks comes to stay.
Lesson learned: provide anything pillow-shaped, it will be slept on! In fact, my guests who left today had taken the top off the cushioned ottoman (the kind with a storage compartment inside) and added it to the pile of pillows. I’ve had the ottoman about two years and this was the first time I’ve ever seen it used as bedding.
