Origin Superior Coolmax® Latex Pillow | Comfort meets support

Nothing is more important than having a good night’s rest. Nothing productive can be completed in the day if we don’t have the rest we need. I’m a sleepyhead, and my hubby knows that, so he never scrimps when it comes to bedsheets, pillows, bolsters and covers. Which husband wants a grouchy wife?

Happy wife, happy life. That mantra rings true in every household globally. That’s why my bedsheet sets are all made from tencel. Because it’s comfortable and cooling. And because I like it. But it’s mostly the second reason.

In collaboration with Best in Singapore, we received the Origin Superior Coolmax Latex Pillow for review.

Made of latex foam, the pillow can provide better support compared to memory foam or fibre as latex foam is denser. As such, the pillow can mould to the shape of your head, giving you the right level of support. Infusing natural latex with their cooling gel formula, the pillow will not trap heat compared to normal pillows, definitely a bonus in our hot climate. Say goodbye to neck and shoulder aches! This is indeed where comfort meets support.

Latex materials are also more durable with hypoallergenic properties that have fewer dust, bacteria and mould issues, so it’s great if you have allergies. 

The pillow comes with a tencel fabric removable pillow cover. It’s already on the pillow when it’s delivered so you don’t need to put it on the pillow yourself. The pillow cover is threaded with tencel fabric and machine washable. You already know that I’m a fan of tencel so this is definitely an additional plus for me.

For the uninitiated to tencel, tencel is super comfortable, light weight and very suitable for the hot climate (you really need to try out tencel bedsheets!). Now obviously, you need to put on the pillowcase if you want to have your pillow last longer. 🙂

An added touch of homeliness | Masons Home Decor

So we’ve been staying at our place for over two years now. And we have added some items to decorate the place or get it more organised over these couple of years, like the organising stackable shoe boxes which I used for other storage, extra cushions for the sofa, and the beautiful blooms I’ve gotten from time to time.

This time, we decided to add one more item to our living room to make it more homely and cozy and so a bean bag it was! We have been actually talking about adding a bean bag for a few months already, even before Masons Home Decor contacted me about their bean bag. That’s definitely a sign! Besides, everyone at home was for the idea of a bean bag and the kids were trying to lay claim on it even before I had placed an order for it.

We got the Cocoon Bean bag from Masons and we agreed on the scarlet red XL bean bag. The Cocoon Bean bag comes in three sizes and multiple colours, so you can choose according to your preference and your home theme. The XL bean bag we got is significantly larger than most other bean bags in the market so it is something we all can use, not just the kids. The XL size is suitable for people above 60kg and below 1.8m.

Reading on a hot afternoon on the bean bag after school

The theme in our house is modern industrial. We like the browns, greys and dark metal but I’ve been craving for a splash of colour, which explains the brightly coloured cushions of late and now, a scarlet red beanbag. I think the beanbag fits in pretty well. It’s almost like the highlight now of our hall and the presence of a beanbag definitely softens the harshness of the industrial feel. Like who doesn’t like to lounge on a beanbag right?

Not so studious, but everyone needs a break

The Cocoon Bean Bag is made with Masons’ own hybrid fabrics to provide maximum comfort, durability, and easy maintenance. I was surprised that the linen was so comfortable and cooling! When buying bean bags, it is also important to check what goes inside it. For the Cocoon Bean Bag, it is powered by RecoFlex® Bean Bag refills, providing ergonomic comfort while dissipating heat which is very crucial for our hot climate in Singapore. The Bean Bag filling is also long lasting and odourless.


There’s a zip at the bottom for you to remove the cover. Underneath it is another zip where you can easily access the Bean Bag filling. Should you need to replace the filling, you can get the refill on Masons’ website.

You can check out more details and place your order of the Cocoon Bean Bag here. I just wish we had gotten our bean bag earlier, like during the start of the Circuit Breaker. The kids would have had definitely more time to spend on it!
