You cannot elegantly recline if you do not have elegant pillows. It's just science.
After years of testing here at Woot Labs, we have determined that the elegance of your surroundings contributes to the overall perceived elegance of your person by exactly 50%. So, even with perfectly coiffed hair, expertly tailored clothes, and snappy shoes- if you're reclined on a ratty nest of errant fluff, no one is going to describe you as elegant. The remedy? More elegant pillows. You're welcome.
