What types of pillows does IKEA sell?
IKEA sells pillows with several different fills.
- Memory foam pillows.
- Feather and down pillows.
- Polyester pillows.
You can also find high-loft (thick) and low-loft (thin) IKEA pillows among these.
The various fills have different characteristics, making them more suitable for some sleepers than others.
Let's take a look at these pillow materials in more detail below. 🧐
IKEA memory foam pillows
Memory foam is made from a synthetic material that moulds to the body.
You'll find several memory foam pillows at IKEA, including the IKEA Näbbstarr Pillow, IKEA Rumsmalva Pillow, IKEA Rosenskärm Pillow, IKEA Mjölkklocka Pillow, IKEA Klubbsporre Pillow, and IKEA Kvarnven Pillow.
All memory foam pillows at IKEA are hypoallergenic.
Memory foam responds to heat and pressure, which allows it to conform to the shape of your body.
This contouring support relieves pressure, reducing neck and shoulder pain.
Unfortunately, memory foam pillows retain heat and sleep warm. 🥵
Some manufacturers now add gel to their memory foam pillows to combat overheating.
While IKEA memory foam pillows generally have positive reviews, they don't last long.
Some customers complained that their memory foam pillow from IKEA flattened and lost shape within just a few months. 👎
If you're looking for a better memory foam pillow, we suggest checking out the Panda Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow.
While it doesn't have a cooling gel layer, it's cheaper, lasts longer, and is sustainably made.
IKEA feather and down pillows
Most traditional pillows are filled with duck feathers or down, which are more expensive than modern alternatives.
But these pillows tend to be more breathable.
Plus, the soft, fluffy comfort is hard to beat. 🥰
There are several IKEA feather pillows, each available with a high loft (for back and side sleepers) or a low loft (for smaller or stomach sleepers).
The feather and down IKEA pillows UK range includes the IKEA Lundtrav pillow, IKEA Gulkavle pillow, and IKEA Bergven pillow.
The Lundtrav pillow is IKEA's most popular and affordable duck down and feather option.
Having said that, many customers have found the lack of support disappointing.
This complaint is not entirely IKEA's fault since feather and down pillows generally offer less support than other pillows.
In general, feather and down fillings are biodegradable and usually last for years, but they're not suitable for everyone.
These types of pillows flatten over time, and you must fluff them regularly to maintain their shape.
They're also not always hypoallergenic and aren't vegan. ❌
If you're looking for a more supportive and hypoallergenic pillow, you may want to check out a memory foam pillow like the Panda Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow.
IKEA polyester pillows
IKEA sells several polyester pillows.
These pillows are generally the cheapest, most lightweight option and are almost always hypoallergenic.
However, they aren't very breathable and tend to retain moisture.
Additionally, cheap polyester pillows (like those sold at IKEA) aren't known for their longevity, with some lasting under a year. 😑
Generally, IKEA polyester pillows are best if you need something cheap and shorter-term.
There are several polyester IKEA pillows in the UK, including the IKEA Sandgräsmal Pillow, IKEA Lapptȧtel Pillow, IKEA Vildkorn Pillow, IKEA Skogsfräken Pillow, IKEA Nejlika Pillow, and IKEA Grönamarant Pillow.
The Nejlika Pillow is a body-hugging IKEA v pillow and one of the top-selling polyester pillows.
If you are looking for reading pillows at IKEA, the Nejlika v-shaped pillow at IKEA is an excellent option.
These types of pillows are popular for those looking for nursing or pregnancy pillows at IKEA.
V-shaped pillows offer excellent neck support for back sleepers and can even reduce snoring by helping keep your airways open.
Of course, the Nejlika v-shaped pillow at IKEA isn't the only v-shaped pillow around.
Many people prefer the Fine Bedding Company Back Support V-Shaped Pillow, which can be bought with or without a fitted pillowcase.
It has a breathable cotton cover, a firm and supportive microfibre filling, and is 100% machine-washable. 😍
IKEA pillow sizes
Most IKEA pillows are standard rectangles, usually 50 x 80 cm (19.5 x 31.5 inches).
Most standard pillow covers fit these pillows. 🛌
You can also find a range of small and long pillows at IKEA.
These pillow sizes include:
- IKEA pillows 33 x 50 cm (13 x 19.7 inches).
- IKEA pillows 39 x 69 cm (15.4 x 27.2 inches).
- IKEA pillows 41 x 70 cm (16.1 x 27.6 inches).
- IKEA pillows 65 x 65 cm (25.6 x 25.6 inches).
- IKEA pillows 74 x 75 cm (29.1 x 29.5 inches).
Unfortunately, if you purchase one of IKEA's more unusually sized or shaped pillows, you'll be limited in your choice of pillowcases.
For instance, you’ll only find one white IKEA pillowcase for the Nejlika pillow (74 x 75 cm). 😞
If you buy a regular IKEA pillow, you’ll have hundreds of pillowcases to choose from (including the Dvala, Trädkrassula, Dytåg, and more).
What else does IKEA sell?
IKEA is a shop of many wonders.
The Swedish store sells everything you need to complete your bedroom.
IKEA bedroom sleep accessories:
- IKEA beds.
- IKEA day beds.
- IKEA sofa beds.
- IKEA mattresses.
- IKEA mattress toppers.
- IKEA bedding.

The range of goods (and their relatively low prices) are a big part of the brand's popularity. 💸
Plus, it can be convenient to buy everything you need all from one place.
IKEA has a 365-day return policy for all its products.
However, this is only for unopened goods and requires customers to sort the return themselves (either by heading into their local store or organising and paying for shipping).
If you've opened the packaging, you can't return your IKEA pillow.
It's worth considering other brands if you want to try a new pillow and aren't sure it'll be the right fit. 🤔
For instance, Emma offers an outstanding 200-night trial for their Original Pillow.
So you can sleep safe and sound, knowing it's a stress-free return if you don't love it.
