Have you ever had to decide between a down/down alternative pillow and a foam pillow? You want to feel that soft and cozy fluff of down but aren’t willing to give up the much-needed support that only foam seems to provide.

Thanks to its creative filling combo, Coop Home Good’s Eden pillow can provide softness and support along with customization thanks to its adjustable filling. The pillow can surely please a lot of people, but as always there are some things to be aware of. Make sure to keep reading below for the full scoop on the Coop Home Goods Eden pillow.

Key Features

  • Three sizes: Standard, King, Queen
  • The idea behind this pillow is that it’s made for those who want the support of memory foam and the comfort of down in one pillow
  • The Eden is adjustable – you can add/remove the filling
  • It is filled with a lush blend of gel-infused memory foam and microfiber
  • The cover is 60 percent polyester and 40 percent viscose rayon derived from Bamboo (soft and breathable)
  • 100-night sleep trial
  • Machine-washable and dryer friendly (both the cover and inner filling are removable)
  • $80 for Queen ($70 for Standard and $90 for King)

Who Makes It?

The pillow is made by Coop Home Goods. The business is family-owned by a brother and sister team. They are known for bringing high-quality and innovative products directly to consumers, bypassing retailers and associates.

Their first product is the shredded memory foam pillow that they started selling in October 2013. They also sell a mattress protector and home-related products such as a stainless steel spin mop and dish drying mat set.

Construction

The Eden pillow has a traditional pillow shape, and the filling is made up of crosscut, gel-infused memory foam and microfibers. This mixture helps alleviate the lumpy or clumping feeling that can happen with big chunks of foam. All of these pieces are uniform and the same type of foam and sort of hold together with the polyester microfibers.

The soft-knit cover is 60 percent polyester and 40 percent viscose rayon derived from Bamboo. It has a textured feel and some mesh-like siding on the side to help with breathability.

The pillow is adjustable, meaning you can open up and access the filling to add or remove as much as you want. Coop also sends extra filling in case you want to add even more for more loft and firmness.

Pros

  • The entire thing is machine washable (just make sure to remove the outer cover)
  • Technically suitable for all sleeping positions
  • Super soft, breathable cover
  • Customizable inner filling that gives you the best of both worlds
  • Comes with extra filling

Cons

  • Removing the filling can make a mess
  • The pillow takes a long time to dry
  • Has more of a shredded foam feeling to me than a fluffy down filling (but less lumpy)
  • A little on the pricey side ($80 for Standard)

My Experience

Coop Home Goods has two popular pillows: the Original (you can read our review of it here) and the Eden.

The Eden pillow is a mix of crosscut, gel-infused memory foam and polyester microfibers. This combination is intended to give the pillow a feel of both a down or down alternative pillow and a foam pillow.

I was curious to see if this would really be able to provide a soft and fluffy feel but stay supportive and not get clumpy or lumpy on me. The pillow comes pretty stuffed already, but they do offer an extra bag of filling for those of you who love a firm pillow.

I am primarily a back and side sleeper, so I tend to like a medium firmness and loft on my pillow — nothing too full or too flat. I took a few handfuls of filling out and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t a total mess the way other shredded foam-filled pillows have been (with lots of pieces all over the place). The polyester microfibers hold the foam pieces together. It’s still a little bit of a mess, but not as bad as it could be.

One thing that really stood out for me with this pillow, compared to other shredded foam pillows, was how smooth it feels. There was really no lumping or separating of the shredded foam filling inside. It does give the pillow a fluffier or down-like feel to it as a result. But because there is a good amount of supportive foam in there, your head won’t sink to the bottom.

The cover is textured, soft-knit polyester and viscose/rayon derived from bamboo. It’s super soft and easy to remove. It’s also machine washable and dryable. The entire pillow is washable, but I’d recommend washing/drying the inner filling only if you really need to. It will take a while to dry completely — like 3 to 5 hours on a low tumble dry. (This is typical for shredded foam pillows.)

Overall

This pillow really is the “best of both worlds” in terms of giving you that nice support and pressure relief from the gel-infused memory foam but also providing a soft and lump-free feeling thanks to those polyester microfibers. I would recommend this pillow for people who have been primarily sleeping on down or down alternative but want to go with a shredded foam option. This is a nice transitional pillow, I think.

Because it is adjustable, this pillow can pretty much work for all sleep positions. Bigger or heavier individuals who typically need a big pillow can add more filling, and stomach sleepers or petite individuals can take a lot of the filling out to get comfortable.

The pillow comes in three sizes and is a little on the pricey side (around $80 for a Queen at full price), but there is a 100-night sleep trial on all orders!

  1. Hi Katie, I was also investigating pillows. I have a Coop Home Goods Original pillow (older non-adjustable model). I’m a back and side sleeper. When on my back, I find the pillow too firm and raises my head too much, sometimes resulting in neck pain on shorter naps. However, if I switch to side sleeping overnight, I wake up with both hands or arms under my face which I do unknowingly while sleeping to prop my head up as the pillow falls too flat. Initially it seems to be fine if I switch to side but eventually gets that way. I realise both contradict each other? So wondering what pillow I should consider for my case (type & recommended model). Look forward to hearing!

    • Hi Richard – interesting predicament! Sounds like you need something adjustable so you can get it exactly the right height that allows it to be comfortable on both your back and side. I’d recommend looking at Coop’s Eden pillow. It’s adjustable but a mix of cross cut gel memory foam and polyester fiber. I feel like it might allow you to make the very small adjustments you might need but without losing support.

  2. My uncle recommended this pillow to me and one of his friends. His friend loves it. My uncle’s recommendation and your review as well as others has me convinced to give it a try. Thanks.

  3. Hi Katie, great reviews thank you!

    What pillow would you most recommend regardless of price for a side and back sleeper? I see you recommend the Coop Home Goods Original for Side Sleepers in your top pillows, but your review of the Eden pillow, also by Coop, gives the impression this is better than the Original (if price or washing isn’t an issue which it isn’t for me). I’m also open to others pillows.

    I look forward to hearing!

    • Hi Rene, If you are a side and back sleeper I’d probably go with the Eden over the Original if you want to choose between the two Coop Home Goods options! I really like it. You might also like the Layla pillow or the Nest Bedding Easy Breather pillow as well. Those are also adjustable and have nice combination fillings, too. Let me know what you end up with!

      • Thanks Katie, now about to proceed on a purchase. If you had to choose one between Coop Eden, Layla or Nest bedding easy breather pillows, which would you choose for a side and back sleeper?

      • For a side and back sleeper.. if I absolutely had to choose one I’d go with the Coop Eden but I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with any of these options! I just really like the smoothness of the Coop Eden!
