BUT no matter how gorgeous the bedding and how beautiful the room is looking, once I lay down on the mattress I'm a little disappointed. It's on the old, small, and firm side for me. Mattress shopping is daunting though, so it always helps to do your research on how a mattress company manufactures their product. Once thing I am realizing when doing my research though, is that materials and craftsmanship matter.
Of the two mattresses below, I'm sure you can tell which is going to give you a better nights sleep and be more durable.
luxury mattress of wool, horsehair and coir? (Above: Mattress from 1907 )
Or a standard mattress of foam? (Mattress from Ikea)
Another really, really important factor for me is the sustainability practices a company uses, and this is what makes a product really worth the extra cost for me. Look for company policies like those of 1907 this:
- Selecting locally sourced materials
- Using renewable and biodegradable sources
- Any plastic used is recyclable, and waste appropriately recycled.
So, even though a beautiful, glamorous bedroom may not showcase a mattress. A beautiful, glamorous and restful bedroom does!
