When elite celebrities want a good night’s sleep, the world of luxury mattresses with a hefty price tag awaits. It’s a world most of us never hear about—that of mattress extravagance where prices range from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars (and here we thought shelling out $1000 on a mattress was a splurge). Of course, what you get is what you’re paying for, as the old adage goes. Quality control and customizable mattress upgrades are what factors into the massive price tag, as does a choice of fabric textile, for those especially selective customers. So even though they might not exactly fall within your price range, here are four brands of luxury mattresses to at least dream of sleeping on.
The Vispring Masterpiece Superb
Made in Plymouth, England, the Vispring Masterpiece Superb also takes three days to make, and is composed of all-natural materials like cotton, silk, horsetail, cashmere and alpaca, all of which are wrapped around 4,000 pocketed coils of Vanadium steel. This bed offers customers a chance to upgrade with Vicuna wool, which drives up the cost from the regular $41,375 to $71,395. Yet the price you pay is definitely worth it with Vispring’s lifetime warranty, with which a sales representative even claimed the company recently recovered a 75-year-old mattress with 95% of its original height and plushness.
The Kluft Palais Royal
This Bloomingdales exclusive sells for $40,000-45,000 and takes ten craftsmen a total of three days to construct in Rancho Cucamonga, California. The Kluft Palais Royal is a ten-layer dream mattress with cashmere, wool, mohair and silk textile fabrics interwoven in the bed springs. It doesn’t stop there, though, since two layers of natural horsehair are used to support and comfortably rest your back. The mattress is of medium firmness, maintaining some springiness and without losing its structural integrity. The one downside: this model is not customizable. If you want that option, you could consider the more expensive $60,000 bed that has even finer materials.
The Vividus by Hastens
Hastens, a Swedish mattress brand, doesn’t joke around with its prices. The Vividus is $140,000 and contains 440 pounds of cotton, wool, mohair and horsehair layers. The corners are composed of flax with a robust redwood frame. This masterpiece requires over 300 hours of labor to make, with hand-stitching and a custom gold plaque. The mattress topper is what makes the difference here, as it embodies the perfect combination between firm and soft. But even if you were willing to splurge for this mattress, you wouldn’t be sleeping on your luxury mattress anytime soon. There’s a pretty big waitlist, particularly because elite customers will buy multiples for their summer homes, and hotels like the Four Seasons look for nothing less than premier quality for their mattresses.
The Duxiana DUX 818
Coming from the most expensive Vividus mattress on the list, the Duxiana DUX 818 actually presents a lower-cost alternative, with a price tag of $13,980. It’s produced in Sweden and finished in Portugal, and contains three inner levels that accommodate your body with varied densities. Each mattress layer can be customized differently, with different levels of firmness that can help, for example, a side sleeper that might want medium support for their torso and then firm support for their legs. And as sleeping habits change, the Duxiana changes with them—the layers can be unzipped from the mattress’s latex cover so you can purchase replacement parts. You can even crank the bed springs to offer lumbar support, adjusting the very hardware of the Duxiana DUX 818.
You certainly don’t need a luxurious mattress to get luxurious sleep (even if it does help). All you really need is a bit of reBloom before bed, and you’re sure to wake up feeling like you slept like a king.
