Beds…what’s a 1/3 of your life worth?
Last week we attended an event hosted by Architectural Digest and Hastens Beds to celebrate the latter’s new showroom in Manhattan. It was a great atmosphere; they had live jazz music and cocktails that paid homage to their motherland of Sweden called Northern Lights. We got to try out the beds ourselves (no drinks in bed) and didn’t want to get up. I’m sure the cocktails had nothing to do with it! No matter, we did learn a few things about the beds to share with everyone while we were there.
A king bed ranges from $7,000 to $35,000; for those looking to invest in great sleep, they offer a $90,000 bespoke bed that is handmade over 140-160 hours.
What makes them so expensive? The bed is comprised of layer on layer of genuine, hypoallergenic horsehair, cotton, wool, flax, and pine. Natural materials create wicking so your body can breathe through the night to ensure a good night’s sleep. Two layers of pocket springs support you; soft, medium, and hard options are available with a 25-year warranty.
This may be the Bentley of the bed world, but none of us should be in a Kia (sorry Kia owners!)
