After a tough day at work, a brick pillow may look like an uncomfortable headrest.

However, this patterned cushion is far from harsh. This pillow is perfect for a quick nap on the couch. This design may deceive your guests into thinking you live in a hard, cold atmosphere, but one touch and they'll instantly fall in love with the plushy accessory. While the brick print may not look very family-friendly, this pillow would work well in the apartment of a hip young couple or for students looking to dress up their place with simple accents.

The brick pillow would also make a good prank accompaniment. People will squirm if they think you're bashing your head against a brick wall!
