The origin of the word “bolster”

The word “bolster” is an Old English word, which was used to describe a long cushion or pad used for support. This term has been in use for centuries, but its meaning has evolved over time. In the early days, bolsters were commonly placed under the head and body of a sleeper to provide extra comfort. Their origin has been traced back to Southeast Asian countries. After a few years, these ergonomically designed soft furnishing made its way to Western countries enhancing physical support and relaxation. 

Today, bolsters are often used as decorative pieces to add colour and texture to a room. They can also be used to provide additional support while sitting or sleeping. No matter how they are used, bolsters have become a staple in many households.

Bolsters were initially created as simple pillows filled with cotton or other stuffing. Over time, they evolved into more complex designs featuring intricate embroidery, quilting, and fringe. During the Victorian era, bolsters began to be used as decorative pieces, often placed at the head of a bed. This style of bolster continues to be popular today, with many people using them as an added layer of texture and interest to their bedrooms.
