I don’t know about you, but I’m tired lately! With three kids to chase and shuttle around and my day job, running The Well Appointed House, I often go to bed tired. What’s better at the end of a long day than to retreat to luxury in the bedroom?
I’ve recently been fortunate to become acquainted with the Beautyrest Black mattress brand. In today’s over-worked, multi-tasking world of 24/7 access to information and distraction, sleep has truly become the ultimate luxury, an elusive elixir that many crave, yet few capture. We see on TV, read in the magazines and hear from our physicians and friends to slow down, disconnect, leave the electronics out of the bedroom and unwind. What if a new mattress could transform your everyday sleep experience into the extraordinary? A Beautyrest Black mattress allows you to Dream in Black, a transformative experience where daylight ends and luxurious sleep begins.
These aren’t your ordinary mattresses – a Beautyrest Black mattress is truly the marriage of luxury and technology. This line features the latest advancements in structure, memory foam and high performance fabrics to create a rejuvenating sleep. The minute you lay down, the advanced pocketed coil technology wraps around you and provides incredible back support. It truly takes the pressure off.
The fabrics used in these mattresses also have special temperature management capabilities residing in the quilting. Special fibers lie just below the fabric layer and are designed to dissipate body heat to keep you cool and comfortable and allow the body to maintain an ideal sleeping temperature throughout the night. The brand has even incorporated diamonds into the memory foam of some of the premiere models in the line. Those models utilize the conductive properties of Micro Diamond Infused AirCool Memory Foam helping to move heat away from the body during sleep.
This isn’t your ordinary mattress line! Each component was carefully chosen to be not only of the finest quality, but purpose-driven for enhanced comfort and temperature management – all to deliver an unparalleled, rejuvenating sleep. Beautyrest Black designers traveled the world to places like Milan, Paris and Brussels to uncover the latest in design and technology.
- For example, Belgian fabric makers known for fine furniture created the top panel fabric for the new mattresses using a soft modal cotton typically reserved for the finest lingerie.
- Dynamic Response™ Memory Foam is sourced in Caronno Pertusella, a small town north of Milan, and has a pneumatic quality that feels like its pushing back after being depressed, for increased support.
- Sleep Climate™ Surface Technology was developed in Manchester, England, using vertically oriented, Austrian-sourced TENCEL® fibers that increase airflow and reduce the surface temperature of the mattress by as much as 2 degrees.
- Advanced Pocketed Coil® Technology feature a densely packed second layer of micro-pocketed coils that enhance the comfort and durability of the mattress in some models. If stretched out, the coils would cover more than 25 football fields. Wow!
It was such a treat to receive a Beautyrest Black mattress of my very own to keep and test out in my home. It arrived yesterday. It is so soft and luxurious – truly a heavenly sleep! It’s like sleeping on a cushion of air. Feeling like Goldilocks, I’ve sat down on the mattress to peruse my October 2014 issue of House Beautiful this evening, which just arrived in the mail. The editors highlight five mattresses – and the Beautyrest Black Laralyn model is “the softest they tested”. You can’t beat that! ~Melissa Hawks
