And so to Bed.

As part of our Luxury lifestyle Series we take a look at the worlds most luxurious beds.

 

 

For sleeping at home –

Starry Night Sleep Technology Bed by Leggett & Platt  costs over $50,000.

This clever bed checks on your sleep all night; diagnosing your breathing patterns, movement and noticing any snoring. It claims to reduce snoring, in most cases, by elevating your upper body a few degrees. It can keep you cool, or heat you up – and each side of the bed can be completely separate temperatures too. Theres a surround sound system, internet connectivity, a docking station and a projector.  Not that any of those thing help you sleep, but may well encourage you to never get out of bed.

 

Jado steel gold bed.

 Created entirely out of gold and adorned with crystals, this bed, with its dvd player, playstation and surround system, seems a lot more about making a statement than catching a good nights sleep. Its not shouting comfort but its definitely demanding attention. Setting you back $676,500 

 

Baldacchino Supreme Bed

Designed by Stuart Hughes – famed for making some of the worlds most expensive items of furniture- as ‘the worlds most exclusive bed’ this is quite the thing of fairy stories. Painted and detailed in gold leaf, with a large sumptuous canopy.  Price approximately  $6.3 million and strictly limited in numbers.

 

Hastens Vividus.

Crafted, they say, to ‘surpass every other bed’.  Taking 45 days to complete a single order and offering you a private VIP sleep test drive in store too.  The list of materials used read a little like a recipe – cushioning flax, springy horsetail, slow growing pine and superior wool -but it does very much look like you’d sleep beautifully on this beauty. Priced around $15,000. 

Savoir Beds.

The Savoy Hotel decided in 1905 to construct a bed perfect for its guests.
Referred to as their No 1 bed, {and no doubt greatly improved since 1905!} the Savoir is apparently the worlds most luxurious sleeping system. Hardwood frame, with extra deep pocket springs and double layers of carded lambswool, then topped off with a kilo of pure cashmere, and that’s just the mattress!  From £46,025.
