Our friend Marc (that would be Francesca's husband) is a relentless researcher; he likes to consider all options when it comes to replacing a hot water boiler, installing a cooling system, eradicating ants. He's discovered the most comfortable mattress we've ever encountered, developed by European Sleep Works in the Bay Area and also available at Scott Jordan Furniture in New York.
Sleep Works mattresses are built in the US and are chemical free. The secret to their soporific superiority lies in the European-style construction and the all-natural materials materials: latex, flexible slat suspension, natural wool, and organic stretch cotton mattress covers. And the prices are not as stratospheric as one might expect, starting at $1,150 and topping out at $2,770. Go to European Sleep Works for more information.
