The 160 cm bolster, which originated in France, was primarily designed to raise the body of the sleeper, thus avoiding the supine position associated with death. It was also popular with large hotels. Today, it is a popular bedding item for its aesthetic appeal and the possibility it offers of enhancing pillows or decorative cushions on the bed. The 160cm bolster adds comfort to the bed, either slipping under the pillow or replacing it. The bolster, also known as a duvet cover, is a perfect complement or substitute for the pillow, filled with refined down or soft microfibre, wrapped in luxurious cotton satin. It offers a subtle, tailor-made welcome to the sleeper's nights.
