No I haven’t!
You really should put a piece of tape over your webcam…
I either think of the friendly ghost or that D-bag Weinberger who may be a ghost himself by now. No way I’d be interested in snoozing on either one of those.
Neither have I. I have to say I’m rather offended by this presumptuous ad copy. Mine is two years old, thank you very much.
Yeah, seriously. “Admit it - you’re gross and dirty and have no idea what you’re doing.” Feh.
Holy hell - $1200? I was just at BloodBath and Beyond, and didn’t see any sheets over $200. A quick web search reveals no mattresses over $600. So are these retail plus a 50% markup?
We take pride in curating the latest and greatest creative technology products around the globe. We personally research and hand-pick each product to ensure it meets our standards.
I see. Who do you suppose curated them?
On the Casper website, a Cal-king mattress is $950. Parachute’s site has linen Cal-king sheets for $189. Factor in some sales tax, and there’s the $1249 retail they list on the contest page.
We probably spent that much when we bought a queen mattress, box spring, nice wood bed frame and cotton sheets (a couple of full sets).
do the sheets come in:
Why, for that kind of money, I could get Agile & Scrum Project Management Certification Training and probably sleep much better at night!
Curated? You askin’ 'bout curated? Oh ho, it’s your lucky day… gotcha curated mattresses right here:
Viscoelastic memory foam?
Fear not, Casper gets a mention. I wonder if they still have that generous return policy as mentioned in the article.
And also from the article… this!:
“Hästens, another high-end Swedish bed maker that offers a curtained-off “sleep spa” for its collection of 10 beds, where shoppers can do that awkward lie-on-the-bed-for-10-seconds-with-your-shoes-on thing in peaceful surroundings. Such treatment comes at a premium: Hästens’s entry-level Marquis mattress starts at $5,400 for a queen, while the Dux 101, Duxiana’s entry model, starts at $5,185 for a queen.”
Pff. We sleep on futons. They roll up and store well. They are uncomplicated. They get donated to [Casa Marianella] (http://www.casamarianella.org/adult-house-wish-list/) sometimes, because most charities won’t take them any more, and we dislike putting stuff in landfills if there’s any way to avoid it.
from the nytimes article you linked:
“use horsehair that is sterilized for up to a year before going into the mattress”
… So what are we now getting artisanal sterilization?
