10 Easy Pieces: Editors’ Favorite Mattresses


10 Easy Pieces: Editors’ Favorite Mattresses

January 9, 2013

We're starting the New Year off right by catching up on our rest. Below are our 10 favorite mattresses; we'd love to hear your preferences, too (let us know in the comments section).

Above: "The tomboy in me has always envied couples who are so similar in size that they can share clothes," Christine says. "It makes bed sharing easier too. As my husband is significantly taller and somewhat denser than I am, we have always disagreed about how firm a bed should be. The memory foam Tempurpedic means we can share our bed even if we can't share our clothes. For added comfort, we put a feather topper on top our mattress. Some claim it's the most comfortable bed they have ever slept in (just ask Julie)." Photo by Kristin Perers via Christine's House: Small Living in London.

To start, she's been admiring Swedish company Carpe Diem's Exclusive Top Mattress, filled with purely natural materials (soft cotton on the summer side and New Zealand wool on the winter side). The line is Nordic Ecolabel approved; for more, visit Carpe Diem Beds.
